KATHMANDU, Nepal - March 8, 2015 - PRLog -- This new program includes two weeks with volunteer medical trek, and another 2 weeks at our sponsoring hospital in Kathmandu.  Volunteers will spend the first half of their stay in Nepal trekking with us to remote regions of the country, and working in our moving medical clinics to provide medical care to villages with no access to health care.   Upon return to Kathmandu, there is time for a 2-3 day break before heading to the volunteer quarters near Alka Hospital where you will spend 2 weeks doing rounds with the hospital staff.  We try to pair up our volunteers with 1-2 staff teammates who work in a discipline similar to their area of study or practice.
