Passionate about international aid and disillusioned with our current healthcare system, I embarked on a mission to Nepal following the devastating earthquakes to help isolated communities rebuild their lives.
Seeing the devastation to the homes was unbelievable – in their place were make-shift camps of 100’s of families seeking refuge from the instability and chaos that was left in the earthquakes wake. I knew that this was my passion and purpose, to help those people who have little to nothing in the way of “care” or medical resource.
What once was a place of positivity, spirituality and high, vibrant energy was now practically deserted as families fled from their homes in fear for their lives. But what I worked hard to establish was a free primary healthcare clinic that offered sanctuary for those effected, both physically and emotionally. Offering traditional acupuncture and working closely with local health authorities, myself and another fellow acupuncturist saw over 50 people each day who had sometimes travelled for over 4 hours to get there.
