We have received the following update from Naomi Reed, former Interserve Partner based in Nepal.
“At the beginning of the week, we felt torn. We were pre-booked to fly to Singapore for the World Physio Congress and an Interserve event. But our hearts were in Nepal. We wondered what we were doing. But now it’s the end of the week… and being here has meant that Darren has met with three of the key Nepali physios, and with Declan (our INF physio friend in Pokhara) and WCPT representatives, who are all here in Singapore for the Congress. They’ve had time to sit down and plan and co-ordinate a physio response to the disaster. Part of this will mean that Darren will fly back to Nepal with them on Tuesday, to help mobilise physio resources in local hospitals (and I will return to Australia as planned). We’re thrilled that Sydney Uni has given Darren time off to do this. His years training physios at DMI means that he knows many of them in the Kathmandu valley and beyond. Please thank God for his wonderful timing… and pray for wisdom and strength for all the physios!”
Please continue to pray:
- For aid workers as they seek to reach isolated villages to assess damage and assist with disaster relief
- Wisdom and strength for the physios as they plan and carry out their response
- Praise God for his hand in the physio response
