HAND operates in the Pihe County of Nujiang State in China’s YunnanProvince, south of Tibet and west of Burma. We have provided nine patients with life saving or life changing operations, as well as countless patients with the means to access medical care.
Our mission is provide health education in the area so that local minority people are able to do all they can to protect the health of themselves and their families. Wherever we can, we send patients who need treatment to hospital and fund their care.
We do this with minimal funds as all of our volunteers pay their own expenses
