Volunteers activities at Salleri, Himalayan region

Dr. Jan Bakker (Holland), Mr. Stijn van der Heide (Holland), Ms Pam van der Heide (Holland), Mrs. Sivane Gaia Gorny (Israel), Miss Sanna Nauta (Holland) were among our several other volunteers from different nations during April/May 2016, who preferred to dedicate their time, knowledge & effort at unspoiled nature with the beauty of snow-capped mountains, and enjoy living with warm and welcoming village people at Salleri.

Salleri is about 2,240m above the sea level at the eastern Himalayan region of Nepal where the World’s highest mountain, Mount Everest stands. The quickest way to get to this tiny Himalayan town of Salleri is to take a flight to Phaplu and then a short trek. The road has been constructed recently and regular jeep service takes about ten hours to reach this beautiful place.

With the fund (Euro 3000) which he raised in Holland, he donated a set of computer, several medical equipment & medicines at the Garma health post.
