Nepal Earthquake Update 5/29/2015

Earthquake Victims

Today has been a busy one for our teams in Nepal. At 7am Dr. Trisha Thakur departed Kathmandu with a team of 5 local doctors, plus nurses and pharmacists, on a three hour journey to Nuwakod Village. They are currently providing free treatment to five hundred patients, due back late tonight. 
Meanwhile our team Upper Gorkha is busy erecting temporary shelters and school classrooms, a total of 62, in multiple villages in the districts of Namjung, Fujel, and Dharbung. Our team has now been there for 4 days assisting the local population with transportation and construction.
Simultaneously Scott, Daniel and Dr. Kairam headed Northeast to the village of Shanku, reported to be badly damaged by the earthquakes. The devastation encountered was truly shocking. While there they met with local villagers to prioritized humanitarian needs...which are extensive. The pictures tell the story far better than words.
After meetings with our Mission Himalaya partners Scott and Dr. Kairam  will hop on a flight to Doha later this evening to begin the long journey back to the USA. Our work will continue as we help our friends in Nepal get back on their feet.
