Foundation description:

Surmang Foundation is a US-based and European Community-based NGO, incorporated as a nonprofit as Friends of Surmang, Inc., in 1988, with IRS under section 501 (c)(3) of the IRS code, EIN # 74 2549293. It is incorporated in the EU, Holland, as Stichting Surmang Foundation Europe.

The Surmang region of SW China is included in the area of 28 million Chinese whose income is less than US 10¢/day. Daunting poverty in this area has created one of the world’s highest infant and maternal mortality rates. To alleviate this crisis, SF has operated a primary care clinic in a remote, poor region of Western China, in partnership with the Chinese Government, Qinghai Province and Yushu Prefecture, since 1992.

Core Project
The Core Project has treated over 67,000 patients for free, including medicine, since the clinic building was completed in 1996. Its focus is on mother and child health. It supports two local ethnic Tibetan doctors, Phuntsok Dongdrup and Sonam Drogha.
