Affordable Health Care

Serving one of the poorest communities in Kathmandu, the pharmacy at Shanti Sewa Griha makes sure that everyone can get the medicine that they need. For 50 rupis (less than a U.S. dollar) patients get a ticket that they can exchange for their prescription from Shanti's free clinic. While this may sound like the work of a socialist utopia, it is no thanks to the Nepali government- a German NGO donates the medicines.
