EARTHQUAKE DAMAGES TO DHULIKHEL HOSPITAL AND ITS OUTREACH CENTERS

The earthquake has also caused damage to many buildings of the hospital. Damage assessment is being conducted and we are making plans for its reconstruction and restoration.


Ten of the eighteen outreach centres, through which we were providing important medical service to the rural villages of Nepal, have been seriously damaged. Two outreach buildings situated in Hindi and Bahuneypati, Sindhupalchowk is completely destroyed while the other ten suffered serious damages. Six of our staff in the outreach centres were also injured in the earthquake. Although the damages to the outreach centre buildings are extensive, our medical teams are still in action, caring for the injured and distributing tent, food and medical supplies.
