Where there is will, there is a way. Dr Thamma Shahi MBBS (BPKIHS), who was born in Kalikot of Karnali, organized a free health camps in his hometown for the betterment of Karnali locals.

The free health camps were organized in 10 different remote areas of Karnali. According to the press statement released by Dr Shahi, more than 2,500 patients benefited from the free health camps. Quoting Dr Shahi the press statement read, “Free health check up could mean a lot to the people here. So my team decided to conduct free health camps for the poor and needy local people. Majority of the patients were children, women and elderly. The best part of doing this is seeing smiles on people’s faces after the treatment.”

A Free Health Camp was organised in Nepal’s largest zone, KARNALI. Often considered deprived and being one of the most remote parts of the country, reaching Karnali can be a challenge in itself. With airfares to the region beyond the means of local residents and roadways being considered the world’s most dangerous, being a resident of Karnali does not come easy. The zone is also home to the pristine and Instagram-friendly Shey Phoksundo National Park and Rara Lake. Karnali was the location of Dr Thamma Shahi‘s free health camp which travelled to ten different locations in Karnali.
