" It is my wish that the medical clinic serve all the people living in the poor and isolated area surrounding Namo Buddha.
Women, children, laborers, and the elderly all benefit from this very needed service. Please support this project."
The Menla Medical Clinic serves the villagers near Thrangu Rinpoche’s Namo Buddha Monastery with low-cost medicine, health care services and essential preventative health information. Far from other medical services, this clinic provides a clean, dignified place where about 3,000 local villagers receive care.
Visiting doctors, a university-trained health care worker and trained monks from the monastery work in a beautiful, new clinic that is part of the Thrangu Monastery campus. Its pharmacy delivers life-saving medicines to treat heart, lung and gastro-intestinal illnesses at low or no cost. After careful diagnosis, the medical staff provides medications that greatly improve the lives of the local people and monks. The clinic also provides simple treatments for skin diseases, burns, infections, diarrhea and allergies that could become debilitating or fatal if left untreated.
Namo Buddha Retreat Center and Monastic College is located in the mountains two hours from Katmandu, Nepal. Here the Buddha in a previous lifetime offered his body to a starving tigress so she wouldn't eat her cubs. The Free Clinic is on monastery grounds, which is located on this site.
