Healthcare Project, Union Council Talhatta, Balakot Tehsil, District Mansehra, Pakistan (Completed)
In October of 2005 a massive earthquake struck Northern Pakistan, killing more than 80,000 people and causing devastation on an unprecedented scale. Many in the remote Himalayan valleys of this region were left without access to shelter, food and healthcare.
The Real Medicine Foundation arrived shortly after participating in the immediate relief efforts in the worst hit mountainous regions, with the longer term mission of setting up a permanent and sustainable clinic to assist the underserved population of this area.
Four years later, there is now a locally staffed permanent clinic operating in Talhatta, a collaboration between RMF and the Pakistani based Hashoo Foundation.
