Tsum Valley is home to Tibetan Buddhists whose subsistence way of life has remained unchanged for centuries.  The Tsumpas, as they call themselves, are a resilient, hard working people who have rebuilt homes and outbuildings  damaged  by  the earthquakes of 2015. 

Read all about us in Minnesota Physician

Living off the grid  means little access to professional medical and dental care.  The six day walk through mountain trails to Kathmandu is often prohibitive due to expense and time away from their farms and animals.  

Our secular medical mission brings medical and dental teams to provide culturally sensitive primary medical and dental dare to the Tsumpas.  We've discovered and treated their cataracts and hypertension, their asthma and dental abscesses, to name just a few.

We are seeking nurse practitioners, physicians, physician assistants, nurses, midwives, dentists, dental assistants and hygienists to continue our work.
