24 May 2015: Updates from Shangpa Rinpoche on the relief work at Laprak.

I rejoice with the team of monks and staff of Janchub Choeling Monastery on behalf of Shangpa Foundation and Bodhichitta Trust who returned to Pokhara from an aid delivery mission to Laprak on 21 May 15 and returned safely yesterday.

This aid mission was led by Lama Amrit and distributed food to the most effected village there. Laprak is a remote village comprises of 600 houses which most has collapsed during the two major earthquakes that hit Nepal. The villagers are in the state of terror and anguish. According to them they have not received any aid so far. Our Foundation mission went there with two truck loads of staple food such as 15 kg bags of rice, dhal, salt and cooking oil. The journey took one and half days and in between they have to change to smaller vehicles due to road and terrain difficulties.

The villagers are so happy to receive our gifts and they thank supporters of Shangpa Foundation. With this, the Chief District Officer and Police Department also appreciate Shangpa Foundation’s effort to eliminate the suffering of Laprak community. Our lamas and staff of Jangchub Choeling Monastery had done wonderful job and showed their care and love to everyone there.

Sincere gratitude to team from Shangpa Foundation and Bodhichitta Trust for establishing this aid mission. Thanks to all donors and supporters for which without your support this could not have been possible.

Relief efforts at remote Kutuskhanli village in Ramechap

22 May 2015 :

The Relief Team was informed of the dire situation of the villagers from the remote Kutuskhanli village in Ramechap and the basic necessities that they require.

After spending a day of shopping and preparation, the relief team set off early in the morning in 3 jeeps with 200 pieces of blankets, 110 pieces of tarpaulins, along with various food items and medication. The courageous team include representative from Little Help Nepal, Thailand who also donated relief aid, 8 lamas from Jangchub Choeling Monastery and Brother Norsang from Karma Osal Ling Dharma Centre, they loaded.

The dirt roads to the area is hazardous due landslides and rough terrains. This is the farthest village S.J.O Relief Team is attempting to reach to date. It is about 12 hours journey. We wish the team a safe journey and successful relief mission.

Thanks to all our donors, this aid is only possible with all of your generous donation. Together, may we be able to do what we can to relieve as much sufferings as we can, and rebuild their lives.

3rd May:
Our Sherpa Friends did shopping today to cook food for people who are in the hospital. Many of the injured at the hospitals have been surviving on dry food for a few days now. They relish having some warm food to sustain and aid their recovery.

Meanwhile they are finding out how to reach the more remote areas where more victims of the Quake are suffering and awaiting help.

Kirtipur Anis visited the Hospital to care for the people there. They found out the injured victims have very little food and hence went to the market to purchase and to prepare food to serve.

Our monks in JCM engaged in full day prayers for the deceased. At night, they lit many lamps in prayers for the deceased and also for World Peace & Nepal.

4th May

Our Sherpa friends distributed rice for 75 houses near Lamsangu. The whole village were affected and they did not get any help so far. Our team gave each family 30 Kg rice. some of our team cooked hot food and distributed to patients in the hospital.

Moving ahead:
We just got request from Tartung Village, near Helambu. 3 small villages are completely damaged and they don’t have any blanket, mattress, food etc. There are about 400 residents with no aid or assistance till now. Our Sherpa friends are purchasing the items requested and will prepare for delivery, half by truck, half by manual carry.

Your donation funds are making a real, measurable DIFFERENCE! After just three days on the ground, the Immediate Disaster Relief & Support Team has already made a significant impact in the lives of injured, sick, homeless, and otherwise displaced people in Kathmandu, Nepal.

With the funds that were donated yesterday, here is what the Immediate Disaster Relief & Support Team was able to accomplish today:

PURCHASED NUMEROUS ADDITIONAL TENTS: In addition to the three large patient tents that the team purchased and erected yesterday, the team bought many more tents today. They worked together to set these tents up as temporary homes for homeless families and to serve as shelter for patients that are being treated in the streets outside of overflowing hospitals.

PASSED OUT HUNDREDS OF LITERS OF WATER AND HOT MEALS: The team loaded up a pick up truck with hundreds of liters of water and hot fresh meals, and drove around dispersing it to people in need. In addition to handing out food and water to people and families in the streets and other public areas, the team walked through the Kathmandu government hospital and handed water out to patients in hospital beds, who would have otherwise gone thirsty for the foreseeable future.

DELIVERED FIRST AID KITS AND MEDICAL SUPPLIES TO HOSPITALS: The team purchased numerous first aid kits and other medical supplies and delivered them to the Kathmandu government hospital and other hospitals nearby. The Kathmandu government hospital specifically requested the team to deliver first aid kits, as the hospital was running out of basic medical supplies such as gauze, rubbing alcohol, and stitching for sutures.

PURCHASED 200 TETANUS VACCINES: The team purchased and delivered hundreds of tetanus shots to the Kathmandu government hospital. The hospital was severely low on tetanus vaccines, so many patients who suffered from deep lacerations and open wounds that previously were unable to receive a tetanus vaccination were finally able to receive it.

PROVIDED BLOOD TO HOSPITALS: Almost all of the hospitals in Kathmandu are low or completely out of blood supply. As a result, the team assisted with a blood drive today. They were able to deliver many liters of donated and purchased blood to hospitals around the city.

NEXT GOAL: Sherpa Mountain Adventures’ relief team has only been able to reach the people of Kathmandu. Karma Sherpa’s next goal is to raise enough money to hire a helicopter to reach the remote Himalayan villages that have received zero relief and medical support at this point. Many, many villages have gone nearly one week now without any supplies or assistance. These villagers are still living amongst their deceased family members and are without food, water, shelter, and medical supplies. They are in desperate need of help, but they can only be reached if we raise enough money for helicopter support.
So again, THANK YOU for your donations, but please keep sharing our message so that we can help more families and villages in need!
