Mountain Heart Nepal successfully conducted a free medical camp today on August 22, in the most remote place of Nuwakot, Sisibu Ward no 6 located in Ghyangphedi. This was the first time any helicopters have reached the place.

We would like to thank all the people who directly and indirectly supported us to help people in need.

Moving further and talking about this camp here in Ghyanphedi, topographically this place is very difficult to reach; People have a very hard time reaching here. They have to walk on foot for hours and hours to reach here. But in our case we were lucky enough that we could reach on our destination through air. Along with the conduction of free health camp just as in our other camps, we also came here to inspect the condition of the locals and the effects of earthquake on their lifestyle. This place was selected after an intensive research after which we found out the people here are deprived of the simplest and the most basic health care services as the one and only health post of the village has been badly destructed by the earthquake.
