Friends of Himalayan Health & Hearing
The Friends of Himalayan Health & Hearing was created as an informal avenue by which to offer compassionately based, independent support for disadvantaged persons who need a “lift up” to get them (or keep them) going on a sustainable path.
These activities are funded independently and not part of the formal Himalayan Health & Hearing Inc. A separate bank account has been established for donations to the Friends of HH&H.
These funds are not subject to application for tax concessions, but of course are documented for transparency’s sake. They are not included in Himalayan Health & Hearing Inc. accounts.
Donations are always welcome and can be made through our Paypal account.
