Hearts In The Himalayas
Creative Activism • 22m
Of the 30,000 humanitarian organizations operating in Nepal, a tiny Nepalese NGO accomplishes what naysayers said could not be done. From award-winning humanitarian journalist Debi Lang comes Hearts In The Himalayas, a documentary about the extraordinary efforts of Himalayan HealthCare. Using the powerful narrative of co-founder Anil Parajuli, the film profiles the work of the volunteer organization, which overcame a ten-year civil war to bring social change via medical care, education, and income generation opportunities to the mostly forgotten people who live in the remote foothills of the Himalayas. It is a humanitarian adventure you soon won’t forget.
Director: Debi Lang
