In a few words
It is such a huge joy and a considerable challenge to be President of AMTM, just when the Association is celebrating its 25 years of actions.
I personally have invested 10 years as Director of the Development Sector, so I know these magnificent Himalayan countries of Nepal and North India very well.
The work carried out by the AMTM Teams in France and in the field is considerable.
The figures speak for themselves…
In 25 years more than 3,000 people have been sponsored with positive repercussions for the people helped, both collectively and individualy.
The 12,000€ assigned annually to donations for jobs, a formula created to finance the necessary job for the good management of the sites (nurses, teachers, cleaners) which favours the development of local jobs as and when required.
29 sites are visited each year.
83% of our budget is allocated for actions on the spot.
Of the populations living in these countries, some have received letters and support from their sponsors, others equipment for a better quality of life and, finally for everyone, a vital programme of monitoring for good hygiene for life and good health, which are financed in particular by the Health Club.
The task is still huge as Nepal is slowly getting over the 2015 Earthquake. The adaptation and evolution of both countries is imperative.
It is with a good heart, pride and joy (which I will need!) that I am committed and delighted to prepare with you, from now on, the future of AMTM.
A.G.M. June 2016
When the association carried out its first mission in 1992 to respond to the call of Tibetan refugees in Nepal and India to save their youth from tuberculosis and preserve their culture, none of us knew where this adventure would lead.
Yet, the founding team, around the President, Dr. Yves Lhomelet and Evelyne Charbonnier, organized the association in three natural centers: medical, sustainable development and sponsorships. These three mainstays which seem inextricably linked are the strength of the association and, with their synergy, the results were rapidly apparent.
Through its actions on the spot, Assistance Médicale Toit du Monde has become a global agent for development. Especially it has rapidly expanded its work to the poor populations in Nepal and India, particularly to women and children.
Our approach is non-exclusive, open and ecumenical.
Watching the progress made since 25 years now, I must admit I feel a great pride which I would like to share with you.
I also would like to thank all those who helped us and who trusted us,
together, all is possible !
