In 2011 fiilm maker Tristan Stoch followed a team of Acupuncture Relief Project volunteer practitioners during their stay at the Vajra Varahi Clinic in Chapagaon, Nepal. In this short film he successfully illustrates many of the complexities of providing primary medical care in a third world environment.
Since 2008 Acupuncture Relief Project has provided over 100,000 treatments to patients living in rural villages outside of Kathmandu Nepal. Acupuncture offers an inexpensive, sustainable method of providing communities access to medical evaluation and basic care.
Please join us Wednesday, June 13th for a celebration of Acupuncture Relief Project’s work in Nepal. Between the two screenings of the film, Project Director Andrew Schlabach will give a brief talk about the organization’s accomplishments.
