Our Charity Organization has been created 1 year ago and the main aims of the Into The World Onlus (non-profit organization) are:
-To help the poorest and in need people from certain areas of Nepal to get some healthcare (chiropractic, physiotherapy and massage), helping them to live their lives in a better way
-To build some health posts (small clinics) in the most rural places of the country, so that they can be used by other NGOs, so that the population can have a more holistic approach to their problems
Eg: by now, through the Volunteers Into The World Corporation we have privided the Nepalese population with chiropractic, physiotherapy and massage treatments, but in the future what the Into The World Onlus would like to do is to work with other specialist NGOs (gynecologist, eyes specialist etc.) and bring to their knowledge the existance of these small clinics around Nepal which they will be able to use to offer their services free of charge to the people in need.
-To sponsor some young Nepali to go and study chiropractic abroad so that once they get their degree they can come back in their country and take over the health post that we have built and through a salary given from the Into The World Onlus they can keep treating the poorest population of the area.
By achieving these 3 goals, our hope is to start improving step by step the health care system of Nepal in the poorest areas of the country so that the people who need it the most will be able to get some advice and treatment for their health.
Our NGO is based in Italy and chiropractic is the only Italian profession recognized by the law which can treat people only by their hands. No sterile equipment, no electrical machinery which are very costly are needed and most important of all no electricity is necessary to make a chiropractic treatment happen. The treatment can be done everywhere, and the only thing that is not even all the time needed is a surface that can be used as a bench even though in certain circumstances even the floor can do the job. Chiropractic is very adaptable, and it is very helpful for the Nepalese population, as their problems are usually back pain, sciatic pain, knee pain and headaches. Those complains are really common because the most common work in Nepal are farming, artisans and manual workers.
Chiropractic in combination with physiotherapy and massage therapy is a great help for all those people that without our help they would be left on their own without any pain relief.
