Tsum is sacred Himalayan valley in Nepal. It's a place of breathtaking beauty and was sealed off to travellers until 2008. Because of its isolation there has been extremely limited healthcare and education for the people living there. There is no road access; to get there you must hike for seven days or fly in by helicopter. Approximately 4,000 people live in Tsum's 13 villages and most make their living through subsistence farming. Too many have lost their lives due to treatable illnesses because they didn't have access to the basic necessities we often take for granted.
The Compassion Project is working to bridge this gap. After the 2015 earthquakes we responded by opening the doors to our first project, the Compassion Health Center. We offer free basic healthcare to the people of the valley. Your donations help us purchase medicine and clinic supplies and fund the salary of our health worker.
We are a grassroots charity run through the hard work of volunteers. We have almost zero administration costs so all your money is put to work where it's needed most: right in the valley. Please help us provide healthcare and education to this remote community.
