HERO is Headed Back to India in 2017


Our return mission to the Mainpat Tibetan Refugee Settlement is tentatively scheduled for early 2017. We would like to see the completion of our initial work on the sustainability projects with alternative power sources, continued animal care and medical support for these people we have come to admire.  Senestech will be returning with us to continue their humane animal population control.  The Tibetan monks will be supported with their living needs and educational support as well.

Our movie Wings of the Dharma was showcased at the 2016 Sedona Film Festival. Click on the picture and view the trailer.




HERO Nicaragua 2016 Medical Mission

The team has been back from Nicaragua and the trip was a huge success!!!!  We are now in the midst of planning our return 2017 trip led by Dr. Sheila Mackel.  This will be our annual medical trip and already the team is assembled and organizing the care they will provide.

Who we are.

HERO is a collaborative team of people wanting to make a difference and to give from their hearts. Some are health professionals, scientists, researchers, academics, engineers and volunteer lay people. Each offers a unique skill and a willingness to help. We are all dedicated to helping those less fortunate than ourselves to create a healthier life in a more sustainable community hoping to preserve their cultures and alleviate human and animal suffering.

Our organization was begun by a small group of people who wanted to “give back.” We were aware of our fortunate lives and of those far less fortunate than ourselves. We began as a grassroots medical team that served in the remote mountains of Honduras. We are now comprised of a diverse group of volunteers which gives us the ability to serve more people in many more ways. Read more …

How you can help.

We rely on the help of others who also want to “give back.” We are a volunteer organization and need people who have the same calling to assist those in need. For those who want to help but have no time to volunteer, we need donations to keep our projects going. Please give generously so we may help to make a difference in someone’s life and to help build sustainable communities in these devastated areas.
