Third World Immersion Program - Camp D:12 - 2020
Nepal remains one of the poorest countries in the world and has been plagued with political unrest and military conflict for the past decade. Since 2008, the Acupuncture Relief Project has provided over 180,000 treatments to patients living in rural villages outside of Kathmandu Nepal. Our efforts include the treatment of patients living with HIV and AIDs as well as people suffering from extreme poverty and social disfranchisement. Common conditions include musculoskeletal pain, digestive pain, hypertension, diabetes, stroke rehabilitation, uterine prolapse, asthma, and recovery from tuberculosis treatment, typhoid fever, and surgery.
