Medical Aid Project

Medical Aid Project for Westnepal as part of the AACZ anniversary expedition 2021

The expedition team wants to give back more to the people of Nepal than just the jobs offered and money spent during the expedition itself. The team has decided to support a small medical aid project which can really make a difference to the people. The goal is to provide funding for 125 cataract surgeries. The costs for curing one eye are 100.- Chf and for 200.- Chf a person can be cured from blindness.
