Here at Backpacker Medics we get to see parts of the world the that some might only dream of- from the heights of the mighty Himalaya to the slums of Kathmandu and everything in between. We do this with the purest of hearts and all the honesty and equality we can muster.
If there’s one thing that we always take away from our work it’s a deep gratitude for our own fortune and the freedom, relative wealth, multiculturalism and beauty of the country of our birth.
The majority of our volunteers come from Australia (as do our supporters), and we’ve yet to come across anyone who doesn’t appreciate our beautiful land all the more for it’s contrast to the areas we work.
And so, on this National Holiday, we’d like to wish everyone – regardless of gender, race, colour or religion – a peaceful, relaxing day full of happiness and gratitude for all we’re lucky enough to have.
Stay safe and stay tuned for some big BPM announcements in the coming weeks!
