2007 Founders

James and Juergen founded MMAP in 2007, and their Project Prospectus and Project Report can be found at these links.

James English studied Science with a focus on Anatomy/Physiology, followed by studies in IT. James worked for a number of years as a Web Consultant based throughout Europe and the USA. Travelling through Central and South America, James experienced first-hand the effects of poverty on communities and their health, particularly in Mexico, Guatemala, Cuba and Bolivia. The lasting impression that these experiences left on him have made supporting communities such as Manali a personal priority.

Juergen Landmann completed a Science degree and worked in Australia and the USA in forensic biology as well as human and animal health, with a special interest in parasitology. Parasites are a major cause of illness and death in many countries, and can be prevented with a basic level of healthcare. Even so, parasites are only a small component of the health issues facing the underprivileged around the world – Juergen’s passion for assisting Lady Willingdon Hospital and establishing the Manali Medical Aid Project stemmed from these issues.
