HealthCare and Nutrition

Mayaa Nepal organizes monthly health camps in some of the poorest districts of Kathmandu. Free and open to all, these are run by a doctor, a dentist or a gynecologist. Between 100 and 200 people attend each session meaning we treat up to 2.000 people each year, often identifying illnesses that can be treated before they become chronic. We also have an agreement with a local hospital whereby patients are treated free of charge when they are sent by our health professionals.

Besides healthcare, Mayaa Nepal has hired a nutritionist in order to prepare the menu for the youngest children attending the Daycare center, and to make some counselling to the mothers when malnutrition issues have been detected in some families.
