Zanskar Medical Service Trip
ZANSKAR MEDICAL SERVICE TRIP
TCEF feels privileged to have served the people of Zanskar through the medical service trip of 216. However, the board feels that the unexpected growth of the project makes it outside the scope of TCEF’s mission.
We are transferring this project to Hands on Global Inc. – a non profit working on sustainable community development, medical, environmental and educational projects. Hands on Global feel that it grew from TCEF’s service projects and is excited to take on this project. The best part about this transfer is that the good work started by TCEF in Zanskar can continue and we can refocus on our core work with Tibetan children’s education.
In 2017 the Zanskar team is returning and will broaden services to include: pediatric cardiology, high risk OB, cervical and breast cancer screening, general medicine and massage.. The team will continue to work side by side with the Amchis, the traditional healers .
The team is concentrating on teaching midwifery, ultrasound and general medical skills to local Drs, village healthcare workers and midwives as well as community development for Zanskaris to sustain their healthcare delivery.
