Zanskar Valley, Ladakh, Indian Himalaya © Photo courtesy of Kinzang Chhogyal
Each year we support a team of medical professionals to travel through the remote Indian Himalaya to provide critical medical assistance to the valley of Zanskar in Ladakh, a place cut off from basic health services for more than six months of the year due to snow and high altitude. During this time the AHF also supports the training of the local amchi, the traditional medicine healers of the region. The aim of the training is to enhance (not replace) the traditional methods of the amchi with some important modern medical practices. This training focuses on providing maternal health support to women living in these remote areas.

You can learn more about the work of AHF here or find out how you can join us to see these projects in action for yourself!
