Email from Brian Smith, Executive Director of HAND
The HAND/Global Orphan Prevention/ Midwifery Society of Nepal team is heading out early in the morning to Rautbesi in the Nuwakot Region. We are taking HAND labor and delivery nurse Amber Shields, Curtis Gt, Eric Warren Moffet, Robin Keunen, Tendi Sherpa, Laxmi, two Nepali nurses and myself back to the devastated and remote regions. Our mission will be to deliver 8000 lbs of rice, oil, lentils and salt, as well as set up a labor and delivery clinic in a tent. Monsoon is fast approaching. Soon these regions will be cut off from the outside world for the next three months.
This is our second mission to this remote region. It is another dangerous mission. We will be gone for two days. We appreciate everyone's prayers as we serve the earthquake stricken people of Nuwakot Nepal.
