Professional nurses make a difference in Nepal

Our wonderful group of Healthcare professionals
Our wonderful group of Healthcare professionals

Dear Supporters, 

Recently we welcomed a group of 11 healthcare workers from the UK to our project here in Nepal. During their time here they ran workshops on First Aid and healthcare camps at 6 different locations, reaching 290 people. 

The team visited several hospitals ranging from small private clinics to large government hospitals including the hospital in the village of Bandipur which was affected by the earthquakes in 2015. It is still being repaired but is functioning.  These visits and tours included an opportunity for professional discussion with the local doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers and helped our volunteer team gain an understanding of the challenges that are faced in hospitals and clinics in Nepal.

Health Camps

The team also ran health camps in a variety of areas- mountain villages, rural farming areas, and local urban areas. Some of the camps were run alongside local doctors and nurses and all were run in conjunction with interpreters. The team was able to identify some trends in healthcare needs which will become the basis of future preventative education programmes for GVI. Working together in the health camps gave the team an opportunity to share expertise and learn from each other. 

Workshops

The team ran several workshops, some of these came out of the issues that were identified from the health camps such as pelvic floor exercises. There was much laughter from both the nurses and the local women as they learnt a little technique involving a balloon to help tighten pelvic floor muscles. Other workshops were based on topics such as developing First Aid skills and exercises to address neck and back issues. Workshops were held for both children and adults and the team made the workshops fun and interactive.

The group came together as a positive team and displayed professionalism and commitment. They were well received by the locals and their time is much appreciated not only by GVI but also the local communities. We look forward to building on their work with our future volunteers.   

With Gratitude, 

GVI Nepal
