Dental care in Nepal for those affected by earthquakes

TT worked with Bishnu Shrestha and the Nepali dental team in September-October to deliver dental care to villagers affected by the recent devastating earthquakes. The project report outlines the activities and achievements.

We worked in the schools and provided dental care to the school children, their families and teachers.

The villagers are experiencing great difficulties trying to recover after the earthquakes.  The situation is not helped by border strikes stopping the importation of fuel, cooking gas and food from India, which threaten to totally cripple the country.

As winter approaches, the plumbing teams are working to complete the toilets at the Shree Jalapadevi School in Bahunepati, and Healthabitat is working on introducing earthquake resistant construction methods into the rebuilding of village houses.

The dental program will continue despite the ongoing difficulties in the country, and will maintain its focus on prevention for school kids, and basic care for their families.

Fading eastern light over western NSW plains on re-entry to Sydney.  Tough visit to Nepal this time. Struggling economy, massive inflation, increasing suicide rates, fewer and fewer jobs. Small wonder the drain of young people coursing out of the country, mainly aged 18-30 years, continues to grow. On average 3-4000 per day.  Villages are emptying. Schools are closing due to falling numbers of students.  Families are breaking up, leaving the parents to grow into either a lonely retirement in Nepal or face moving to another country where they are with their kids and grandkids but without their daily neighbours and local community.  It’s great to see so many beautiful Nepalese working and helping in Australia and other countries, and seeking opportunities they can’t find in their home country but the social, structural and political fracturing back in Nepal is deepening. The next few years will be very interesting.  Namaste!!🙏🏽 🙏🏽
