We are extremely grateful to Rah-e-Hayat (REH) who have generously donated a range of medical supplies for our Porter health support initiative. The medication received covers a wide variety of health problems encountered by high altitude staff on expeditions including basic first aid supplies for minor accidents, painkillers and muscle rubs and ORS for dehydration. The supplies will be sorted into individual kits for 40 porters attending the 2nd Porter Stakeholder Meeting scheduled for mid-march.
HASP plans to supply similar induvidual kits to more porters at the begining of climbing season 2016. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to know more about our Porter health initiatives or donate medication.
REH is the health and poverty alleviation division of the Human Element Foundation which works with marginalised communities and the NGOs working with them.
