Would you offer

a most memorable book to a loved one, and by doing so, trigger a most useful medical gift to the people of Nepal?

Take part in our "Snow Leopard for Medical Technology" campaign. 

And in return receive

a companion book to Peter Matthiessen's award winning novel that documents for you with magnificent photography the Himalayan region of Upper Dolpo in Nepal. The Snow Leopard - A Pictorial Companion, by Dr. L. S. Montejo, follows the path that Matthiessen and Schaller took, with exquisite images and quotes.

Biologist and naturalist, George Schaller called this companion book "magnificent". This 120 page highest quality book is a must-have for anybody who has read and enjoyed The Snow Leopard (1980 National Book Award for non-fiction).

mHealthkarma, a non-profit organization, is here to offer you this beautiful book in exchange for a tax-deductible contribution that we will donate in its entirety to the medical community of Nepal in the form of medical equipment and teaching.

Our projects involve bringing affordable high tech medical devices, along with teaching on how to use them, to Nepal, a country much in need of this kind of help.

Ultrasound is a medical technology that is useful in many critical situations, is non-invasive, and can save many lives. It can be used in obstetrics, emergency room evaluations, and as a tool for making surgery painless without the risks of general anesthesia.

Help give this technology to teaching hospitals in Nepal, while offering yourself or a loved one this very special book. We already donated one ultrasound in March 2016 and we are looking to donate another one this year. Please help us!

The Snow Leopard - A Pictorial Companion
  • 6 claimed
The Himalayas have always seduced mountain climbers, philosophers, scientists, governments and the writer Peter Matthiessen who went there not only to follow George Schaller in his quest for the snow leopard, but also for the more difficult journey of finding a better truth about himself. In 2014, the author followed their steps in an effort to document what is often hard to visualize while one reads "The Snow Leopard". While enduring cold and the difficulties of high altitude, he was able to beautifully document the land of Dolpo, this rarely visited part of the world. The result is magical and it will no doubt inspire those who have read the book and yearned to travel to this distant land. The book is the perfect companion for those who admire Peter Matthiessen's work, "The Snow Leopard", and follows it chronologically with pictures tied to most of the days in his book. All benefits from the sale of this book will go to mhealthkarma, a charity helping bring inexpensive medical help.
