Active Melbourne Film Series 2010: Independent Documentaries addressing environmental and social justice issues.

In 2008, two volunteer acupuncturists visited a remote village in Northern India. They were amazed at what they encountered, immediately inundated with patients who had never received medical treatment before due to isolation, poverty and desolation, they carried out their work in a dilapidated hut. The need for a healthcare clinic in the area was all too evident.

After seeing the benefits of the temporary clinic, these two acupuncturists created a dream and a promise to bring acupuncture and healthcare permanently to the village. From this dream came the creation of Traditional Healthcare clinics, designed on the principles of permaculture and sustainability, with educational rooms, renewable energy and water conservation.

“Come and join us for a viewing of a 20-minute short of our three part series on The Making of a Sustainable Healthcare Clinic in India.”
