ACCESS HEALTH CARE IN RUKUM NEPAL #2

It’s not always easy to conduct health projects in a country with an infrastructure like Nepal.

The last two days the AHCR has had meetings with Professor at Chitwan Medical College, Dr. Harish Chandra Neupane and Mr. Nirmal Rimal, project coordinator at AMDA Nepal. Both have shown a great support of our work. We are truly thankful for the guidance of Dr. Harish and Mr. Nirmal Rimal!

Furthermore AHCR has initiated a collaboration with Mr. Nirmal Rimal of AMDA-Nepal and through them, we will assist the Nepali Red Cross in Rukum to perform HIV/AIDS tests of the people we will treat.

Heath Camp

24/11/12

Today were on a health camp –  a team of doctors, nurses and volunteers at a Hindu festival where anyone who needed medical care could come see a doctor and get medication for free. We saw lots of interresting cases that you wouldn’t see at home – for instance an old hindu man who put tobaco into a deep cronic wound on his foot in order to keep flies away from flying into it. Here are some pictures of the event.

The guru of the hindus preaches about keeping the waters of the river clean. As a ritual they pour milk from 120 cows into the river during the day to keep in clean.

They say this is the most holy river of Nepal. The Guru was preaching all day to keep it clean.
