Hand departs in a few hours on the next mission

We are preparing to head out on our next two day mission. This will be another joint mission between HAND, GOP and MIDSON.

We have added several new team members. New team members are Sarah Abou Jaoudeh from Lebanon, and Ian Bellows from Seattle. Sarah and Ian will be working together to film a documentary on our Nepal earthquake relief work. We also have Mingmar Tamang as a new team member. Mingmar will be our local man who has been huge for helping his home village.

Returning members are myself, Curtis Gt Amber ShieldsLaxmi Tamang Robin KeunenTendi Sherpa and Eric Warren Moffet

Our mission is to Sindalphulchowk, in the remote VDC of Ichowk. We will build a new labor and delivery clinic (tents), provide 30 birthing kits, provide clean water solutions because of donated supplies from Operation Blessing International, and build new public toilets to replace all of those destroyed in the earthquake. It will take us about 7 hours in a Land Cruiser to reach the upper VDC area, on treacherous roads. If all goes well, we will be back Thursday late evening. This will be my 5th remote earthquake relief mission.

We appreciate everyone's donations, prayer and support.
