- Aug 22 15
The Langtang area in Rasuwa was severely affected by the earthquake and the access by road was blocked due to landslides. The Nepal Army provided us with a helicopter to reach the site. We could not return on our scheduled day because of the weather. We were given shelter by a patient in her temporary home that was built after the earthquake destroyed her home. We served 240 patients and a total of 520 consultations were done.
With some help from Nepal Army, we got a helicopter to take us to the site. We also could not return on our scheduled day because of the weather. The roads were blocked because of landslides, which only reinforced in us the need to serve the people of the area, who haven't got enough access to healthcare services. We could only serve 240 patients and provide them 373 consultations, but it seemed to be of a greater value than we could have imagined possible.
Of Total 520 consultants: EYE-140, Skin - 30, Gynae-39, Orthopedics - 50 Gen Med - 201 and Radiology(Ultrasound 60)
