Namaste one and all, an update from EHN.. We are currently getting ready for the summer health camps which will run from late July to mid Aug in Kaski district.
The first team is a combination of Brazilian, English and American volunteers who will be helping to run the health camp in talbesi. The second team are from Kuwait and will be working in a new village in Rupakot from the start of Aug..
This year we will have dental at the second health camp for the first time plus we will be able to test eye sight and hearing with the new audio unit and charts.
Also we will be running some health and hygiene lessons for the children as well as taking some time out to go swimming in the lake.
Lastly EHN has approached a large Pharmaceutical distributor in Nepal to ask for sponsorship which if agreed will provide us with free and low cost medicines.
The first me camp volunteer will arrive next week to to do two weeks elective at WRH before joining us on the med camp, another will go to Kanti afterwards to two weeks elective there and one other is going to spend a week trekking and exploring central Nepal.
We will up date you more and and when we have updates and of course we will be posting regularly once the med camp opens. So if you are in the medical profession or even a student and would like to attend a future medical camp then please contact our team with your experience so we can best place you. Alternatively if you are a team of medical professionals or students interested in running a medical camp then please get it touch because we can use your skills to help a number of Nepal communities.
