Assistance Médicale Toit du Monde (AMTM)
Assistance Médicale Toit du Monde (also known as AMTM) is a French charity organisation. It was established on February 27th 1992, but the founding team operated in an informal way since 1990. Conceived as a non-profit organisation with humanitarian goals, it was approved as establishment for wholesale distribution of pharmaceutical drugs.
Its first missions responded to Tibetan refugees in India and Nepal requesting help to battle TBC and preserve their culture, but quite quickly, its action radius was extended to weaker population groups in both these countries, especially elderly, women and children. Currently, AMTM operates in Nepal, India (West Bengal, Himachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Orissa) and Bhutan, in 28 cities in total.
Volunteering medical personnel and doctors visit field projects mutliple times a year. TBC treatment, vaccinations, drugs and support of local doctors and hospitals are the heart of their missions. When the teams are absent, local responsibles are trained to consolidate medical action.
