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.
Health us Nepal,
a personal project
Our NGO, Health Us Nepal, is based in Humla, one of the most isolated regions in the world. It’s a stunning place in the middle of the Himalayas, with no running water, electricity or roads. It’s Marc’s birthplace.
