Our volunteer doctors Sharon and Dalia have connected with our partner on the ground Operation Blessing, as well as teams from Indonesia, India and the US, who are providing them with equipment, medicine and support.

We are making an effort to work within the Nepalese framework, and Sharon and Dalia have both received the proper certification to practice medicine in Nepal. The doctors are working with the UN’s health center, who reiterated that there were very few organizations dedicating to dealing with post-trauma care, and so our work there is even more vital.

Kathmandu is slowly returning to life, and people are mainly focused on getting buses out to their families in the surrounding villages where infrastructure and buildings were hit the hardest and where it has been most difficult for aid and relief efforts to get through. Our teams will be travelling to these villages to provide medical and post-trauma care to as many people as possible.
