Of the 30,000 humanitarian organizations operating in Nepal, a relatively unknown humanitarian organization accomplishes what naysayers said could not be done. From award-winning humanitarian journalist Debi Lang comes Hearts In The Himalayas, a documentary short about the extraordinary efforts of Himalayan HealthCare, a Nepalese NGO, 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. Using the powerful narrative of co-founder Anil Parajuli, the film integrates footage shot during an Everest-size expedition fraught by challenges as he leads the international medical team into the brutal conditions the villagers face everyday. It is a humanitarian adventure you soon won't forget.
