Earthquake Appeal

Shortly after the earthquake on 25th April 2015 which devastated much of Nepal, myself and Elaine Miller of the UKTS

launched an emergency appeal for help for the families affected by thalassaemia. Many had lost their homes and all their possessions in the disaster and were sleeping in tents in or rough shelters with animals; and everyone was desperately short of food. I have been in as much communication as possible with our clinic President Durga Pathak in Kathmandu; and we now have information that a large number of our families have been affected including 6 families who have lost everything … their homes, their belongings and their livestock which is also their livelihood.
