Thanks to your continual support, MMW has been able to send our first post-earthquake volunteer to Chanauti! Dave is overseas, living and treating patients in a temporary structure while funds are raised to build the new clinic. In a week and a half he has already treated just under 100 patients- and the numbers are picking up daily!
You can follow Dave's blog, and see pictures of the clinic here.
Thank you for enabling us to begin plans for a new clinic structure, to send our first post-earthquake volunteer, and to make sure he has enough supplies to treat patients in the village of Chanauti.
As you are aware, a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit Nepal on April 25th. Thanks to you, MMW was there, and will continue to be there in an effort to rebuild the clinic and the town.
MMW has been serving the village of Chanauti in Nepal with acupuncture and Chinese Medicine services for several years now. During the recent earthquakes, this village was one of the worst to be hit. 1,400 households are now homeless and the district is without a medical facility. Despite that, the people of Chanauti have rallied together to help each other, build homes together, sharing what food they have.
MMW is using 100% of fundraising proceeds to provide sustainable huts for the people of Chanauti to make it through the rainy season, rebuild the Chanauti clinic, and help the town to rebuild in the aftermath.
Thanks to your unconditional support, MMW can continue to be there with the people of Nepal.
MMW has been so lucky to have wonderful volunteer acupuncturists, eager to fill our two clinics in Nepal! And thanks to your continual support, we’ve been able to keep them stocked with the proper clinic supplies. Chanauti, in particular, has grown even higher in demand. With 60 patients lining up, hoping to get an appointment that day, we're soon adding another volunteer to handle patient loads! Keep up with their experiences, here!
We appreciate all the support you've given MMW, enabling us to provide uninterrupted patient care to the people of Bhotechaur and Chanauti. With your continued support, we can make sure our volunteers have enough clinic supplies to continue treating the patients who line up each and every morning!
We at MMW hope you had a wonderful holiday season!
It has been a busy season of successes, as we've been able to continue treating patients at our newest Chanauti location. Every morning 40-60 patients line up to receive acupuncture treatment. MMW has been able to staff the clinic with one full-time acupuncturist, a full-time assistant, and a part-time acupuncturist that comes in to help 3 times a week. We have been very fortunate, thanks to you, to be able to keep this clinic, as well as our Bhottechaur clinic, staffed and making a difference in Nepal. Keep updated on our volunteers and their daily life, here!
Our summer months at MMW have wrapped up successfully! Yan was in Bhotechaur and Chanauti for three months treating patients. She had a wonderful journey, which you can read about HERE. Our newest volunteer, Amanda, arrived last month to continue her work. We will keep you updated with her work, or you can follow her blog through our website!
