PROJECT REPORT – June to September, 2011
 
Our primary healthcare programme in Humla continues to provide a valuable service in this remote and mountainous district. Since June 2011 over 2600 villagers have been seen and treated at our 5 clinics including more than 1000 mothers and females and 250 children under 5 years of age. Nearly 200 pregnant mothers have received advice and treatment.
 
A fresh supply of medicines was distributed to the clinics. This is no easy task as they have to be flown from the Indian border by light aircraft, through the Himalayas, to the mountain airstrip at Simikot. From there they are portered to the clinics up to 5 days walk away.
 
Our highly successful child health education programme, Little Doctors, has started in 3 villages at Torpa/Bargaun, Yalbang and Simikot. 66 children and their teachers are receiving health training. The programme this year is in partnership with 3 local government schools.
 
Our health workers continue to provide, and develop, our health outreach programme. Over the last 3 months they have visited 5 of the remotest villages to deliver health awareness sessions.
 
The Nepal Trust thanks you for your continued support which is helping to improve the lives of some of the most deprived people on the planet. Our, and your, work with health combined with our inputs to renewable energy and income generation projects is really beginning to make a difference!
 
We hope you can continue to support us. How about asking a friend to look at our project on GlobalGiving? Our website www.nepaltrust.org will keep you up to date with all our activities.
