Situation Report: Update from Nepal-- May 28, 2015
HFI Stafffer & Medical Team Leader, Marianne Lako, assists patients in the village clinic.
As Nepal fades from the nightly news reports after suffering two devastating earthquakes, Hope Force Internationals second medical response team continues to serve the Nepalese people. A six hour journey up winding mountain roads led our team to their next village home for four days -- serving in an area that had yet to receive aid. After setting up camp, tarps quickly appeared along hillside ridges to house a pharmacy, patient intake table, assessment booth and physical therapy corner. One quarter of the entire village died in the aftermath of the quake, and many more had suffered severe injuries.
Patients eager for help quickly crowded closer. Many still exhibit fragile emotions from frequent aftershocks and the impending monsoon season. Their reality: more rain equals increased landslides and treacherous travel. More rain means increased landslides, treacherous travel and the realities of no shelter.
