INF Nepal Director, Prem Subedi, has sent the following update from Pokhara:
“Our medical team has reached Gorkha and have been able to help but have found that the need is less for medical care and more for relief. Some of our team members from Gorkha are flying to more affected areas in an Army helicopter. We are awaiting further information from them about the extent of need in that area, which is very inaccessible and far away from district centre. In the meantime, we are finding out the situation in neighbouring district of Dhading. We are expecting more injured persons being airlifted to Pokhara. Also, those injured persons may have Spinal injuries needing rehabilitation and we expect some will be brought to Green Pastures Hospital.”
Please do continue to pray
- for those who have been injured and for those who have lost loved ones
- for the safety and wisdom of all those involved in rescue efforts
- for an effective response from rescue organisations and that help would get to those who need it
- and for wisdom for INF’s leaders, for God’s peace for all our staff and volunteers
Rowan Butler, Interserve Partner and publicity officer with INF, is travelling today by bus to a town which was at the epicentre of the earthquake. Please pray that he will travel safely and have a productive trip.
