Press Release (ePRNews.com) - KATHMANDU, Nepal - Oct 27, 2016 - Trekt Himalaya and Medical Trek Nepal are proud to display a gold medal emblem on their web page showing the Top 100 Award and efforts on behalf of the extreme sports and hiking community (visit: http://trekthimalaya.com/trekking-in-nepal/) . The award winning blog posts are created to prepare hikers and extreme sports enthusiasts for the experiences and challenges they will face while volunteering in Nepal.
Two of Medical Trek Nepal’s most viewed blog posts, provide medical volunteers, most first timers to Nepal, with essential information on packing, permits, health precautions and cultural expectations helpful for a successful and safe trek.
Sandra Krasa BK, founder of Medical Trek Nepal (http://trekthimalaya.com/volunteer-in-nepal/), writes the blog to prepare volunteer nurses and doctors for their two week medical trek to remote Nepali villages that have no access to even basic health care. The isolated villages are so remote, that the villagers seldom, if ever, see Westerners. Sandra’s goal is to prepare the volunteer medical professionals and provide them with as much information as possible to facilitate positive interactions between caregivers and villagers.
Human interest stories from the blog and accounts of the volunteer medical trekkers have been featured on the Red Bull extreme sports website, Orlando Medical News in Florida, and newspapers in Australia. (See – http://trekthimalaya.com/news/)
The blog’s helpful tips on Nepali customs, hiker safety, general dos and don’ts, are useful to almost any adventurer visiting Nepal. The blog is read by medical trek volunteers and adventurers from all over the globe; it is most popular with American, Australian, Israeli, Canadian and European travelers.
As the popularity of Medical Trek Nepal and medical voluntourism (http://trekthimalaya.com/volunteer-in-nepal/) increases, Sandra expects her website traffic, social media rankings and blog readership numbers to increase, as well. The hiking blogs help potential volunteers find her website. Medical Trek Nepal started with one mission trip and four volunteers in 2012 and has grown to eight trips and 70 medical volunteers in 2016. Sandra estimates that Medical Trek Nepal has treated over 10,000 Nepali villagers that would otherwise have had no access to medical care.
The need for medical care and disaster relief was especially great following the 2015 earthquake in Nepal. Sandra quickly mobilized special medical units to hard hit, isolated villages that were literally leveled by the catastrophic quake. To date, Medical Trek Nepal is the only relief that has arrived in many of these isolated villages. For more on this see http://trekthimalaya.com/blog/ Source :
