On August 19th 2014, Ryan Phillips (Director of ECTA International) and his 8 year old son Asher set off on an epic journey. Over the next 15 days they cycled in tandem from the Manali, Himachal Pradesh, India, through the Himalayas, over the second highest pass in the world (17,582ft/5328m) and eventually reached Leh, Ladakh, a remote region of North India. The duo set off hoping to raise the funds necessary for the Dr. Paul Brand Medical Scholarship which will send 5 students from remote Indian villages to medical school. The sponsored candidates will return to their home communities after completing their studies to bring competent and compassionate health care to some of the the most isolated communities on Earth. Socioeconomic obstacles have made it virtually impossible for village parents to send their children for medical studies. It is arduous journey for a village parents and students to even complete High School, let alone access higher education. As a result, there is a desperate shortage of Doctors across the rural Himalayas. Due to this shortage of Doctors and primary level care, villagers suffer from conditions which could easily be treated and even more easily prevented. The change will begin with 5 young doctors... but they need our help to begin their journey. Ryan and Asher have done their part... have you done yours? Let's complete this journey together!
