Ek Ek Paila delivers comprehensive health care services that includes - ophthalmology, ear nose and throat, dental, gynecology, dermatology, medicine, surgery, pediatrics, orthopaedics, radiology, pathology and counseling.
Ek Ek Paila is a Nepali driven organization that works by collaborating with the local government and local partners. The funds are locally raised to support EEP’s work.
Team of volunteers that provide free medical services in remote areas of Nepal. We are generously supported by Nepalese donors, Nepali led organizations and the local government, thus making our services partially sustainable. We are non political and the choice of our service areas are solely decided by our team members based upon the need for service. In the area of service, the local government contribute towards the logistic for the team, such as accommodation and food, thus cutting down on our overhead costs.
