In the midst of health risks and frequent rains, our Nepalese volunteers journey to small villages that have not yet received aid. While the emergency food, clean water, and health training they provide is absolutely crucial to these children, the simple act of human kindness and love is just as precious! Some of these children have lost family members in the flood, others have lost their homes and belongings, and most have lost food and clean water. Imagine the comfort these children feel knowing that someone cares enough to come from far away to help them!

Thanks to our generous donors, medicines and medical tools have now reached the flood-ravaged area in Nepal! Villagers crowd around HealthEd Connect volunteer, Sangeeta Malla, as she treats them for the multitude of injuries and illnesses caused by navigating floodwaters. Innumerable sharp objects and bacterias lie hidden in the murky waters that can lead to infection and dysentery, often causing the death toll to rise even after the initial crisis has passed. Sangeeta and other volunteers have been working day and night since the flood to alleviate current and potential dangers for her community.

Southern Nepal has been struck by record-breaking monsoon rains that have killed many and stranded thousands without food or clean water. After a few days without communication, we have finally learned that our HealthEd Connect volunteer, Sangeeta Malla, is safe and that she has been tirelessly utilizing her nursing skills to help the sick and wounded. Although it appears that the floodwater is beginning to recede somewhat, it has left a wave of destroyed homes and gardens, drowned livestock, a lack of basic necessities, and illness.
Sangeeta took time out of her work to describe the situation around her home: "Now many dead body of animal like dog, chicken, goat is coming near by our society. So its too much smelling and mud is also smelling so sometimes we can't breath. Very poor families they already lost thier houses…almost everything. We are water from hand pump but its smelling mud inside so can not drink. We are buying from market but its almost cost is double and to go buy some place else we have to cross flood way. We are providing some dry food but its difficult to manage because we can not help all society, but they are expecting from us. Now people are staying in open air so they are suffering from fever, headache, back pain and diarrhea too but still from government side no response. We have fear of snake biting also."
HealthEd Connect is working on solutions to get aid to the affected areas quickly. We will soon provide information on how you can help.

The Kafwa group is working tirelessly to put everything in place for the program .This time they have acquired pillow cases for our teachers who have travelled [from Kasompe].
Earlier in the week they sent a picture of the nine new chairs they purchased for the training. The women manage the Kafwa Center as a business, renting it for birthday parties, meetings, and training events. They're always on the alert for new ways to add value to their entrepreneurial enterprise.
