Welcome and thank you for visiting the Himalayan Medical Foundation website.
I am Dr Gregory Rabold and close to 25 years ago while living in Kathmandu, Nepal I founded the HMF in order to provide free medical care to the Monastic and local lay communities in the Kathmandu valley.
Our seven medical clinics as well as our dental services provide much needed care to a significant portion of the Nepali population who cannot afford to pay for doctor’s visits or medication.
In addition, Our Public Health Projects play a very important role in prevention of disease and overall health.
I invite you to scroll through our website if you are interested in learning more about our services and what we have accomplished over the last 25 years.
In one of our videos our country director Chhiring Lama will share a day in the life of the HMF. The other videos provide very interesting stories about the patients who come to our clinics.
How You Can Help
The HMF operates entirely on donations, with one of the lowest administrative fees in the non-profit sector. Incredibly, we are able to provide office visits at an average cost of $1.50 per patient. Therefore, your donation has a tremendous impact on the services we offer, improving quality of life, relieving suffering and even saving lives. Watch our “Day in the Life” video for a window into our daily operations. Thank you for your interest and care.
