Letter from the Founder

Dear all,

Since the earthquake six days ago our Nepali friends from Access Health Care have been doing all they can to assist the re-establishment of Nepal.

AHC consists of folks much like myself; we are a group of young and dynamic students and professionals in the fields of medicine, nursing, public health and engineering.
The task we are facing is not an easy one and the post-earthquake situation is complicated. Things ares chaotic and as we are working in the field we find many controversies about what should be done and how it should be done. 

We do not say that we know the golden solution to the issues that are currently arising and we know that efforts must be diverse and many. However, I can guarantee that our friends are doing all in their power to help. We have a plan, and as we proceed we will adjust to the reality that we meet to the best of our ability.

We have created this site to update you all about our work and we highly appreciate you all following, sharing and creating awareness about the present situation in Nepal.

For those of you who wish to help, donations to our work are can be given through www.acchealthcare.org. All the funding we receive is spent exclusively for the emergency response and the long-term purpose of AHC.

Sincerely,
David Kovacs
Founder, AHC.

Post Earthquake Situation in Rural Nepal is Getting Worse

SINDUPALCHOWK, NEPAL

After providing shelter for victims of the earthquake in Kathmandu, our team is now moving towards areas outside the valley.

According to the official numbers from the Government of Nepal, 2071 people have lost their lives in the district of Sindhupalchowk and more than 648 people have suffered from injuries due to the devastating earthquake that has recently occurred in Nepal.

We currently have 10 volunteers that are working hard to assist the people in Sindhupalchowk. The aim of our team is to provide the basic needs of the people in this district which will be adequate for the next month or a month and a half. We also aim to provide medical support. Some of the basic needs at the moment includes food, tents, blankets or quilts (if tents won’t be available green house plastics, thermal plastics), mats or profiles, medications, sanitations and cloths.

Based on the first number of donations from Denmark, the team has bought bagged foods (as shown in the images below), as the risk of Hepatitis and Cholera are high in local stored food.

The current situation is worsening and the safety in Sindhupalchowk  is compromised. Many people are still missing their relatives and friends.

You can now help AHC with the necessary support on our front page in order to aid the people in need in Nepal. The ressources will be transferred directly to our team of volunteers that is currently active in Sindhupalchowk.
