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!
