Connect impoverished Nepalis with free healthcare

Message from Isabelle Chan-Emery and Elisabeth Avery, BPK undergraduate Students:

My name is Isabelle Chan-Emery and alongside fellow BPK student Elisabeth Avery, I am currently completing a co-op work term at a medical clinic in Nepal. Our clinic would like to host a 1-day Health Camp where we offer free healthcare services to 300+ impoverished individuals. Since our clinic is non-profit and non-governmental, the Health Camp is administered on behalf of generous donations. We have created an informative video to raise awareness of the situation and our fundraising initiative, as well as a GoFundMe page. We would greatly appreciate it if fellow BPK students and staff could help spread the word and/or donate to this life-changing cause!
