ECTA International Holistic Health for the Himalayas



 A trip to the hospital is no small affair for villagers in the Darjeeling District of West Bengal, India. An average trip for a seriously ill individual often requires being carried on a stretcher across rough mountain trails followed by several hours of driving on treacherous landslide prone roads. One emergency often costs several month's wages and can send a family deeper into the spiral of poverty. Seeing this need, ECTA worked with local communities and organizations to develop a reliable low cost option for an isolated region. In conjunction with our Indian partner, HIMserve, we support and operate 3 ambulances serving one of the least developed corners of the district. Click on each of the Ambulances to learn more:
