Marc Boix Bruguera
Doctor. Born in Nepal. He was adopted when he was 6 by the family Boix Burguera from Girona. He studied medicine in Universitat de Barcelona and did his MIR (Medical Residency) at Hospital Arnau de Vilanova in Lleida. He has been the first president of the association. On 24th October 2020, he had to step back due to the communication issues with Simikot. He has a contract with the association that began on 1st February 2021, as a full-time Project Manager, based in Nepal.
He has a Non-Resident (NRN) permit that grants him some administrative and operative advantages that he wouldn’t have as a Spanish tourist.
During the pandemic, Nepal established a complete lock-down of the population. That is when Humla’s authorities granted Marc a health-care permit that allowed him to break the isolation in order to attend patients outside of Simikot.
