New Dentistry Ward
New Dentistry Ward

The month of March at the DCWC Community Hospital, Kavre, Nepal has been a busy one. Here are some of the highlights:

We finally were able to open the long awaited Dental Services Ward and it is just beginning to see patients. To this remote rural population that heretofore had to rely on our periodic dental camps we now offer comprehensive dental care in house. A full time dentist oversees all treatments from consultations and X-rays for precise diagnosis to essential services like extractions, scaling, and polishing. And with the additional availability of advanced treatments, including Deep Caries Management and Root Canal Treatment, as well as fluoride application and Diastema Closure, we're determined to bringing proactive dental care management to our rural communities.

Also in March a comprehensive School Health Camp was conducted at Sri Antarastriya Yuva Barsa Secondary School in Ramechap. The event encompassed ENT examinations and general health assessments such as blood pressure and pulse rate measurements, as well as dental check-ups. A fully equipped first-aid box with essential medications and equipmebnt was provided to the school for health emergencies. A total of 64 students and 5 teachers benefited from the services rendered at the camp.

Also in March we conducted a successful MR Vaccine campaign at 3 Primary Schools and one Health Post. Our team of two Health Post workers and an outreach educator from the DCWC Hospital administered the vaccine to 55 individuals, protecting them for life against measles and rubella. This campaign wouln't have been possible without the support and cooperation of our community members. Together we've taken a significant step towards preventing the spread of infectious diseases and promoting overall community health.

And to close out a very busy month of March the DCWC Community Hospital received a remarkable donation of medical equipment generously contributed by Dr. Zdenka and Mr. Matej Rubes from our esteemed Czech elder community.

This czech community has been staunch and active supporters of DCWC from the inception of plans for this rural hospital until today. Still, everyone at the hospital was overwhelmed with gratitude and profound appreciation for this donation. Here is an excerpt of DCWC's letter to the generous donors:

"....Your dedication to the betterment of healthcare services in our rural village has ignited a beacon of hope and healing for countless incividuals. The donation of state-of-the-art medical equipment, including the invaluable ultrasound (point-of-care ultrasonography) machine, digital blood pressure sets, dermatoscopes, dopplers,opthalmoscopes, pulse oximeters, surgical scissors and an array of other essential health instruments is a testament to the unwavering commitment towa+rds enhancing healthcare accessibility and efficacy in our community. .... The ultrasound machine, in particular, stands as a beacon of hope, offering swift diagnostics and aiding in critical medical interventions, thereby saving lives and alleviating sffering. ....Together we stand united in our mission to make healthcare a fundamental right for every individual, regardless of their circumstances."

It's in the spirit of the last sentence above that we want to thank from our hearts all the generous donors in the US who make our work in Nepal a continued success.
