This past month we were fortunate enough to have a group of 12 doctors from Rocky Vista Medical College in Colorado visit us in Nepal. During their stay they visited Orchid Garden, the organization that operates the hostel. We have ten girls living there full-time now and the house looks great. I'll be back in Nepal soon and I'll be sure to get some photos of the hostel itself which is a rented flat next to Orchid Garden. The girls from the hostel were all giving full physicals by our volunteer team of doctors and I'm happy to report, all are in good health. The exam also gives us a health record for each girl, something they did not have before, so that future volunteer medical teams will be able to compare their health at this time with the results of a future exam. While this kind of health record is typical for us in the west, it's unheard of in Nepal.
I am attaching a photo of one of the girls you've seen in the video posted for this project. This current photo was taken during the health camp.
