WHO’S BEHIND THIS SOLIDARITY PROJECT?
Namaste! This little boy at the left side of the picture it’s me, Marc Boix Bruguera: the cofounder of Health us Nepal. The pic was taken in the public orphanage where I lived until my Spanish parents, Ramon and Rosa, adopted me. They raised me and gave me access to a good European education.
As I grew old, I wanted to do something to help those people who haven’t had the same fate as me. That is why I decided to study Medicine and fly back to Nepal to settle down in the village where I was born. There I started this NGO. Thank you for stopping by!
#HealthUsNepal’s mission is to bring health assistance to the remote villages of Nepal where
more than 50,000 people live forgotten in the middle of the Himalayas, with no access to quality health assistant.

Marc Boix Bruguera
I received a letter from Marc, where he explained me his project. Once I knew the hole story it was impossible for me not to get involved.
I feel so honoured to be part of the family Health us Nepal! This is a genuine and thrilling project… Something not so common nowadays.
Knowing that Marc is making his project possible fills me with satisfaction. Step by step, and with the help of everyone, Humla’s health will be a reality!
