Worthy cause - Simien Mountains Mobile Medical Service-UK

Worthy cause - Simien Mountains Mobile Medical Service-UK

For the past seven years, Wendy Lovatt and her husband, Brian, have been running a medical project in Ethiopia called the Simien Mountains Mobile Medical Service (SMMMS). They started the project after trekking through the Simien Mountains with Mountain Kingdoms and seeing first-hand lack of basic medical care and health services available to rural communities.

Their project includes a clinic they built in 2012, which provides 24/7 delivery services and emergency medical care, mobile medical teams that conduct health clinics and provide health education to remote communities, and emergency evacuation mule teams with special saddles. They have sponsored 4-year BSc Midwifery scholarships for 14 local students who now work for the project in local health centres. You can see everything they do on their website: http://simienmountainsmobilemedicalservice.org/.

Wendy and Brian just launched a new crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to for their clinic on CARINGCROWDSM at https://www.caringcrowd.org/provide-safe-childbirth-expectant-mothers-ethiopia.You can make a pledge and create a card for any other occasion, which will be sent in your name. Johnson and Johnson will donate matching funds up to $250.00. Mountain Kingdoms has donated £250.00 to this amazing cause to support the admirable work they do in providing healthcare and educational support to remote communities in the Simien Mountains.

They are registered as non-profit, tax exempt, public charity in the US under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, EIN 47-5150326, as well as in the United Kingdom, Number 1162302, and in Belgium, number 0838.437.019.There is a separate donation option for the UK, USA and the EU via Belgium (http://simienmountainsmobilemedicalservice.org/donate) and all donations are tax deductible.

Mountain Kingdoms clients return to Bhutan

Bhutan is back open after two long years, and Ian and Lizzy were amongst our first clients to return. They were doing the Druk Path Trek and here’s what they had to say about their time in Bhutan.

"Amazing scenery and sights with the most hospitable people you’re ever likely to meet. Our guide was superb and all the camp crew were great. The Druk Path trek may be a short trek but the altitude makes it more challenging as most of it is over 3500m, we were well looked after and the food was amazing in camp."
