HERO Volunteers in India 2018

Medical:  A medical team returned to the refugee camps bringing much needed medical care, eye glasses, vitamins, immunizations, etc. We treated more than 1,500 patients in the settlement which consists of 7 different camps in the region and the Monastery.

_DSC0503Veterinary:  We had a team of  vets and support staff helping us provide care to the animals.  Vaccinations and medical treatment were provided.  Also, Senestech continued their studies of dog populations and the need to provide humane population control.  With this advanced technology, it will lead to a reduction in animal population with a hopeful reduction in rabies in both animals and humans.

Alternative Power:  The team continued to build upon the solar power system already established.   Maintaining the system and expanding its current footprint was achieved during our trip.  We were even able to install solar water heaters for the monks!

Vision:  The Lions Club of Sedona as always continued to support our efforts as we brought sight to those in need.  HERO is most grateful to the Lions Club as well as Dr. Serge Wright and his staff for their hard work helping to make this happen!

Education:  We have been most fortunate to receive a generous grant that will support the education of the Tibetan monks.  It is their commitment to carrying on the Tibetan traditions and teachings that will keep this important culture alive.

WE COMPLETED OUR THREE TIME COMMITMENT TO THE TIBETAN REFUGEES OF MAINPAT AND THE HINDUS WHO LIVE WITH THEM SIDE BY SIDE.  THANKS TO ALL OF OUR GENEROUS SUPPORTERS WE WERE ABLE TO MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN MANY PEOPLE’S LIVES.
