Dear friends and supporters.

For all of us the Covid19 virus has created all sorts of problems and made life so much more difficult. Imagine how it must be in Humla, one of the remotest corners of the world. Nationwide Nepal has an expanding infection rate and has only 12% of the population fully vaccinated. There is now a real concern that a third wave of infection will happen particularly as the build up to the main festival season of Desai and Tihar develops. 

Humla District is the remotest part of Nepal and not easily accessable except by foot or by a small plane if you can afford it. The good news is that Humla has one of the lowest Covid infection rates in the country. We believe that our childrens health education programme, Little Doctors, has contributed to wider health awareness amongst families and siblings and helped to keep the infection rate low. 

Since our last report the weather has improved, making travelling easier and allowing access to the more remote clinics. Infection rates show that about 1000 people have been infected with Covid  with only one death. 425 have received vaccination. Our 8 clinics have been very active  with other treatments and over 2800 patients have been recorded. In addition nearly 2000 have received other medical services. 

Our 8 clinics through our delivery partner SHIP is supporting the governments efforts to limit the spread of Covid by strengthening the local health system and its workers. This cooperation is invaluable and helping the local Health officer to manage under difficult circumstances and limited resources. As soon as the schools can get back to full function our Little Doctors health education programme can start again and help to establish real health awareness.

Many thanks to all of you that have supported us in the past. Without your help over the years we could not have achieved much in such a remote and difficult to access area. It is such a beautiful part of the world and deserves your help; perhaps you can spread the word amongst your friends and colleagues?

Namaste
