Mandave Singh, UNITED SIKHS’ therapist volunteer from the Midlands in the UK, arrived in Nepal in December to help the quake survivors heal after losing loved ones and their homes. Rebuilding their physical homes was one thing, but Mandave Singh believed that rebuilding the inner home of their soul to bring stability to their minds would be a great challenge.
Phoola Maya Tamang, 57, was examined in the medical camp by Dr Raminder Kaur and Dr Rishab Koirala who strongly feel she has some underlying lung condition and is quite ill. We called the WHO health cluster with whom we are registered and they advised us to take her to the nearest government hospital in Kathmandu.
As you know, Nepal was hit by one of the most devastating earthquakes on April 25th. When my country needed help, I came across the UNITED SIKHS team of volunteers and doctors willing to travel to places where no one else dared to go. I found passionate members and we became one team.
