We visited the new Necha Community Hospital building and met with Nilam Bastola, chairman of the Asian Heritage Foundation Nepal. He is managing the building of the new in hospital in Necha which has been supported with funding from a number of foundations. The building work had been slowed because of all the people in Necha were busy planting rice in their fields.
We talked to Nilam about working together with the hospital doctor to teach first aid to school teachers from the 16 schools in Necha. We had already discussed this with Rohit’s uncle who is the headmaster of one of the schools in Necha and influential in Necha’s education community. We decided to meet with the doctor and develop an education programme based on the most common first aid presentations in Necha.
Together with Nilam we walked to a few remote houses and poor families living on the eastern hills surrounding Necha. Here the people were living in temporary shelters provided by the government or other aid organizations.
