Earthquake--Part 11: Visitors (Part 1)

Earthquake--Part 11:  Visitors



We have had some amazing visitors come to help out since that terrible day
which forever changed our lives one month ago.

We are happy and thankful for electricity, internet, food, and shelter.
Many do not have these yet and may not for some time.

The following Aljazeera article gives some insight about the situation here now,
plus has links to other interesting articles.

Our first visitors were Nepalese Army soldiers.
They selflessly did whatever was needed during a time of sever aftershocks.
We were blessed with their presence and by their desire to help their fellow citizens.

Next we had visitors from India bearing gifts of apples, cookies, and water!
At that moment, these gifts really "hit the spot!"

Dr. Yuri Gelland, anesthesiologist from California, along with his son,
came to give medical care in health camp trips to devastated villages.
THANK YOU!!!  What a blessing they were to those they served.
Here, left to right, you see Dr. Dale Mole', Dr. Gelland's son, Dr. Gelland, and Bidur, our head driver.

Dr. David Kovar, cardiologist, from Colorado, came and spent his time giving medical care
with the organization Reach Nepal's food distribution teams.
THANK YOU!!!  You may never know who much hope you gave your patients!

A team from the Lions Club of Kavre Banepa

visited us and put up this sign:

Yes, there are sponsoring free food to our earthquake victim patients!
What a blessing!  THANK YOU!!!

SOS Children's Villages brought some babysitters and set up this tent.

Busy and sick parents could relax a little knowing their children had a safe place to play!
You can only imagine how useful this was!

These precious darlings can't really smile yet, but they can play!
Healing is starting!

Diego Laje from CNN Espanol, middle, seen here with Dr. Fernando Cardona, pediatrician, left,
and CEO Dr. Dale Mole', interviewed our doctors and presented a story for his listeners
of our earthquake experiences.  THANK YOU!!!
His story helped to bring awareness of our needs to the general public.

Visitors from Doctors Without Borders came to check out our blood supplies.
THANK YOU!!!  We so appreciated their help!
This is very important during "normal" times, and doubly so during a disaster.

This beautiful and sturdy ten, put up by our maintenance men (good job!),
was donated by International Medics, a Canadian group, courtesy of ADRA Nepal.
THANK YOU!!!  It has been so useful and beneficial, as you can imagine.

Here are the team members who brought it to us and assisted our maintenance men in raising it.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of our Visitors post for information about the rest of our visitors.

In the meantime, we just want to say, "THANK YOU!" not only to everyone
who was able to come physically, but also for everyone who prayed,
and continues to pray, and also for those who are able to help with financial support.


The smile on this precious visitor says it all!

Until next time, blessings to all of you--and thanks again!
