We arrived in Kathmandu to find the Maoists holding a olitical rally in Durbar quare, something that would have been unthinkable only a few months before.
The Nepalgunj camp was held in the Medical College Hospital at Khoalpur and once again we were supported by the hospital staff, notably the theatre nurses led by Shushila Adikari.
A total of 94 ear operations were carried out 128 hearing aids were issued. The camp was a great success and we managed to avoid the health problems which so often affect team members from outside Nepal! As usual we stayed at the Traveller’s Village and were well fed and cared for by Candy and her team.
As a result of a review of the future direction of our work in Banke and surrounding districts, we decided to return to the Fateh-
We spent four days operating and carried out 12 major ear operations and 6 minor procedures in the AMDA Hospital which serves the camp. We hope that this ‘second front’ against ear disease in Nepal will develop further in the coming years.
