Thrangu Phende Clinic

Namo Buddha, Nepal

About Thrangu Phende Clinic

The Thrangu Phende Clinic is located at Thrangu Tashi Yangtse Monastery in Namo Buddha, Nepal. The Clinic provides much needed health care to the resident monks and visitors at the monastery, as well as to some 3,000 villagers who live nearby.


The Clinic offers both Western medicine as well as acupuncture treatment. Trained monks from the monastery staff and run the Clinic. In addition, the Clinic hires the services of two local visiting doctors, as well as an Acupuncture nurse, to help staff the Clinic.

Villagers pay a small registration fee, but all other services at the Clinic are free. The Clinic provides basic treatment for conditions such as skin diseases, burns, infections, diarrhea, and allergies. These conditions could become debilitating or fatal if left untreated. The Clinic also has a small on-site pharmacy, which dispenses medicine to patients free of charge. 

Global Dental Relief  runs dental clinics twice yearly and has supplied dental equipment that is kept at the Clinic permanently. Kansai Medical University Hospital of Japan held an eye camp in 2012, serving 500 villagers and performing 60 operations.


The Need

The Clinic has ongoing operational expenses, which include the purchase of medicines and medical supplies, as well as salaries for our local hired doctors and acupuncture nurse. By making a donation to support the Clinic, you can help us to continue to provide essential medical help to the local villagers as well as the monks at the monastery.
