If you are thinking about going to Kumari when allowed be in Good shape. Here is a note of what to expect. Rasuwa District is further North but it is still 50 Kilometers to the clinic area.
[name remove ] told me today that her friend is in this village….The village of Karmidanda in Rasuwa Nepal, near the city of Pakhora…..her boyfriend, who is an EMT, if flying there tomorrow…..a person they are in contact with in the village told them he will meet them at the airport, but that it will be a 3 day hike to the village and a 3 day hike to get out. Its about 50 miles from Katmandu All roads destroyed, no gas, no vehicles….100% of all the houses in the village destroyed….
My Plan is to enter information as I hear or get it on this blog. So HE4N can keep people informed.
Today we received an email from the PA (physicians Assistant) in the clinic. Short and to the point.
Luckily We are all safe.We lost our houses and foods .All people are
living with safety and trying to be live.No communication to reach
here.Everything damaged.We lost our hospital and all equipment.All
people are living in open sky. It’s been 3 days hitting by earthquake
and heavy rain with landslide here.
We are trying to get help from every where.Plz we just can
request to you to help us for foods and houses if you have any more
At this time I’m In kathmandu to bring some medicine and hands to
help for injured.I’m going back hurry,Keep in touch with Jagat.

HE4N has heard that people in relief organizations just 7 kilometers out side can not get supplies. So to a remote area like Kumari HE4N believes there will be no immediate relief. Except what the individuals with in the HEN organization can do.
HE4N had sent them funds to keep the clinic operation until Oct. prior to the earthquake. so we believe they have some funds to get some medical and emergency supplies if they can find a way to get them but not enough funds for a disaster of this proportion.
