On Saturday April 25 2015, an earthquake of magnitude 7.9 devastated areas surrounding Nepal’s capital city Kathmandu. The death toll has already reached the thousands, with tens of thousands injured and made homeless.
Natan-IHA's team immediately got to work, and within days two Israeli doctors -
Dr. Sharon Shaul and Dr. Dalya Navot-Mintzer - were already on the ground in Kathmandu and the surrounding villages.
They will be backed up in the next few days by a first mission of professional volunteers who will provide first line post-trauma support to the victims, and together with local partners assess the needs of the population in order to draw up a detailed action plan for further assistance. This first mission will include health professionals (including pediatric health), post trauma specialists and logisticians.
