Medical Volunteer in Nepal: Internship at the Pediatric Clinic in Kathmandu

Volunteering at a Kathmandu Hospital
When Magda from Portugal started her workaway with IKPVA as medical volunteer in Nepal, an old childhood dream came true for her. At the Pediatric Hospital in Kathmandu she exchanged experiences and knowledge, while her Nepalese host family welcomed her with utmost kindness. During the last days of her trip, Magda went for trekking in the Annapurna Region.

It´s been a childhood dream of mine to visit Nepal and the neighboring region of Tibet.
Ikoporan in association with FDIP allowed me to join the wishes of helping others and getting to know such a different culture as the Nepalese is from the European.

In the Heart of Kathmandu

During my 3 week stay in Nepal I was very fortunate to be welcomed in a host nepalese family that not only demonstrated utmost kindness and generosity to me and my boyfriend, but also with whom I was able to learn about many customs and their meanings, cultural inheritance, frustrations and dreams in the heart of Kathmandu. I thank them for having enriched my experience in countless ways.

Volunteering in a Kathmandu Hospital – a great opportunity!

At the hospital I was able to exchange experiences and knowledge that was beneficial to both sides and was also extremely well integrated in the hospital routines. Thank You Manmohan Cardiothoracic Vascular and Transplant Center for this opportunity!!!

During the final days: Trekking in the Annapurna region, Nepal

The final days in Nepal I spent trekking in the Annapurna region and was blessed with the most breathtaking mountain landscapes I have ever seen!

All of these things were perfectly orchestrated with the help of Ikoporan and FDIP, and I will always be extremely grateful for that!!! Keep up the excellent work!!!!!
