24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the HALO phone is on. Two of our team members take turns carrying it around, on call at all times. Emergency doesn’t sleep and at any hour, tragedy can strike deep in the Himalayas.
When the HALO phone rings, it is all hands on deck.
Each MountainChild Team Member has a part to play. While one works to secure permissions, another works to schedule helicopters,while others are notifying doctors and communicating with remote health workers. Many parts are moving simultaneously and quickly, but this is the work of HALO.
The task of saving lives is heavy. It’s tedious and expensive and it often seems impossible. But it’s also essential to our service of these remote places and critical to the lives of many who call those places home.
The work is heavy. But together, the load is light.
