NAMASTE: A HIMALAYAN JOURNEY FILM SHOWING AT INSPIRE
Thu 20 April 2017, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
The film uncovers the extraordinary journeys patients undertake to seek healthcare in the Himalayas. Dr Kate Yarrow follows some of the journeys taken by those living in remote areas to reach hospitals or clinics. The film also uncovers the additional challenges facing doctors and patients after the devastating earthquakes of April 2015 and reveals the extraordinary personal journeys of the people met along the way. Doctors For Nepal, producers of the film, sponsors the training of doctors and nurses from impoverished backgrounds. Once qualified, they return to their communities to provide much needed rural healthcare. Gareth Taylor, who made the film, will be present.
