Response of Dhulikhel Hospital to Flood Victims in Terai Region, 2017

We, at Dhulikhel Hospital, Kathmandu University Hospital believe that quality healthcare should be accessible to everyone no matter the circumstances and will never step back from serving the needy in any way possible. Once again our country is facing 'a war without an enemy' in the form of the disastrous "flood" that is causing utter devastation and innumerable loss of lives with the possibilities of widespread infectious diseases epidemic. We dispatched our team immediately for the flooded region of Terai to provide free medical services for the flood victims.
