A BAREFOOT DOCTOR IN NEPAL

Namaste,

During the cultural revolution in China, barefoot doctors were village doctors who would walk to peoples homes to administer treatment. This is a visual story of my time as a volunteer acupuncturist (barefoot doctor) in Nepal in May 2014. I did this with an NGO called the Acupuncture Relief Project. This is an organisation that has been going for almost a decade and now has an established clinic dedicated to acupuncture in a remote town called Bhimphedi.
