Dr Kelsang joins Adara as our Tibetan Medicine Practitioner.
Dr Kelsang joined Adara in October 2006 to provide medical support to the people of the remote and hard-to-reach areas of Humla and he has stayed with Adara ever since.
Dr Kelsang has many years of training in Tibetan herbal medicine and practice. Now, he spends nine months a year walking from village to village treating people through Tibetan medicine.
Dr Kelsang says: “I am inspired by Buddhist philosophy to serve others on humanitarian grounds. So, I decided to devote my time to support people who need my professional service. As Adara is supporting the communities with free health check-ups and medicines, it is great opportunity for me to realise my own dream too.” Dr Kelsang says every moment he has had in Humla has been memorable and rewarding.
