Mount With a Motive - Nepal's high Himalayas standing tall and firm on a mission to cure Alzheimer's Disease.
First of all, let us make you clear about the term "Alzheimer's Disease". It's nothing other than a fundamental form of "Dementia" the comprehensive term describing a group of symptoms associated with a diminish in memory power or overall thinking capacities severe enough to decline a person's ability to perform regular chores.
Alzheimer's disease is brain disarray named after German physician Alois Alzheimer, who first recognized it in 1906. Scientists have learned and researched to some great extents about Alzheimer's disease in the century since Dr. Alzheimer described.
Around 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's is a progressive and fatal disease of the mind which tends to destroy brain cells, which causes problems with memory, thinking power and behavior acute enough to have an impact on work, areas of interests or hobbies or social life. It can get worse over the span of time, and it is lethal. Today Alzheimer's disease is enlisted as the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States.
On contrary to this status, Alzheimer's disease is still unknown today in most parts of the world. Today, many people are dying because of this disease and still, people have no solid ideas. On that informative note, we, team Nepal Calls You, are trying to let people know that none of the countries are untouched from Alzheimer's disease. Today approximately 30 million people in the world are fighting with Alzheimer's disease.
What we strongly believe in is ‘All humans might not be generous enough to assist in others' hardship and it's not mandatory to be also. But, who are, they matter as they can beautify someone's status. YES! You read it right. Your generous shade of life can be a mega boon to those people who suffer 24/7 and struggling with the grave. Be it suffering from fatal diseases like TB, fighting with a mental disorder or experiencing starvation. We people with big hearts and wide thoughts reaching for horizon living a well-settled life can help those agonized categories of mankind so that they can live better lives relatively.
Humanity matters and is still alive among us. Why not $1 from me if he/she can get a cure? Why not a loaf of bread from me if he/she can cope with utter hunger? These kinds of interrogative statements really end up with goosebumps and sometimes even with heavy heart and watery eyes. Just think about the amount and its credibility which can be collected from the elite population and goes for those needy people. It feels good. Yeah! $1 can be more powerful if it is collected from big mass and used appropriately to those who deserve it. In one hand, helping needy people will relief their degree of suffering while on the other it over breeds happiness and satisfaction for those helping hands and generous soul.
So, if your wonderful bunch of people are also thinking to help those underprivileged groups, sufferers and victimized including destitute communities in and around the world. This blog will stimulate your range of liberality for sure. Here, today we will be sharing a mission which has held back in 2018 but with a motive. Legions of travelers conquered Island Peak in Nepal and raised five digits’ fund to cure Alzheimer's patients.
