Team Arrives

The Acupuncture Relief Project team arrived in Kathmandu, Nepal Monday November 3rd. We were warmly welcomed by Phakchok Rinpoche and his staff who are all very enthusiastic about our stay in Nepal. Through considerable effort, our team was able to bring over 500lbs. of acupuncture supplies and herbal medicines for our clinic project. We have spent the last three days at the clinic site in Chapaguan (a village about a hour and a half south of Kathmandu) enjoying spectacular views of the Himalayas. We have a brand new building to work out of next to a small Tibetan monastery housing over 50 novice monks. We have met with several local businessmen and community leaders who received treatment and are eager to spread the word about out clinic opening on November 10th. We are all very excited to be here and are ready to get started.

Thanks to all of our families, friends and to our generous donors for giving us the support to make this project possible.
