On Sep 5, 2015 Mountain Heart Nepal successfully conducted free health camp and provided free medical aid to individual families affected by earthquake in Haba-8.Makwanpur. With request from the health care personnel’s we had to conduct the camp within the premises of Primary Health Care Center to fill gaps in services and to ensure health care needs of affected populations are met. The people visiting the camp also got free medical services like blood sugar test, and counseling. 259 people visited the camp and took the health benefit. 20 people got counseling service including female community health volunteer.

Besides counseling they were also oriented about psychosocial education. We also believe acupuncture therapy as an adjunct to our medical treatment form. So we had an acupuncture team with us who provided acupuncture therapy to 57 people. We too provided child friendly space through Quake Volunteers. Children are the most vulnerable group during in the aftermath of a disaster, both emotionally and physically so we believe to provide stability for children in post-disaster through various activities like dancing, singing, games and art.
