2020 was not a great year for many things; one of them was fundraising. As we crawl to the exit, we have one more task to complete on our Musa calendar. We are joining with our friend, Dr. Paul Auerbach, to help in the funding for the Wongchhu Sherpa Memorial Hospital. 

The Wongchhu Sherpa Memorial Hospital

Dr. Auerbach is the world’s leading expert on Wilderness Medicine. He is the author of The Field Guide to Wilderness Medicine and Medicine for the Outdoors, and the coauthor of Enviromedics: The Impact of Climate Change on Human Health, with Dr. Jay Lemery, which you can read about here. Check out his books via our Musa book page here

Paul is a founding member of the Wilderness Medical Society. Paul was also a longtime friend of Wongchhu Sherpa, and along with Dr. Luanne Freer and Dr. Eric Johnson he has dedicated himself to the hospital project, now under the leadership of Lakpa Sherpa, Wongchu’s daughter. Read here all about it!

This donation doubling will go for one week, so please take a moment to  bring permanent and vital healthcare to the lower Solukhumbu region. Let’s make Wongchhu Sherpa’s dream a reality.

We wish you a safe and healthy season. We hope for a blessed 2021 and we are so thankful for you.

Jam Jam!!
