Monsun Überschwemmungen 2017

Namaste!! I am writing to update you all on the situation of the flooding across Nepal. Firstly I’d like to apologize for not being able to get this message out sooner. To put everyone at ease I can confirm the worst is over, the local people are slowly recovering, they responded tremendously and there has been a serious team effort in getting things back to normal. On the 13th of August 2017 there was severe flooding due to the heavy monsoon (there has not been one this grave in 15 years).

Harders in Nepal


Im April 2017 sind wir nach Nepal gereist, um uns von den Projekten von Clinic Nepal nach vielen Jahren wieder persönlich ein Bild zu machen. Hari Bhandary, Gründer von Clinic Nepal, begleitete uns während unserer Reise und war ein hervorragender Reiseführer.

In Kathmandu konnten wir noch die Spuren des Erdbebens sehen. Viele Gebäude, vor allem die traditionellen, alten Gebäude der Innenstadt, waren durch Gerüste, z.T. einfache Konstruktionen aus Bambusstäben, abgestützt. Die Tempelanlagen, die wir gesehen haben, waren teils wiederhergerichtet, z.T. noch mit aktiven Baustellen; manchmal lag einfach nur noch ein großer Haufen Backsteine herum...

Die Regierung hatte beschlossen, das gesamte Wasserrohrnetz der Stadt auf einmal zu modernisieren. Daher waren die meisten Strassen aufgerissen und die Asphaltschicht entfernt mit der entsprechenden Staubentwicklung in der ganzen Stadt...

Ise und der Kindergarten



I remember the day a good friend of mine, Laura, who has been in Nepal for a medical internship in spring 2016, told me about her time over there, the experience she made, the people she met and how much she loved being in Nepal. At that time I had already been looking for other volunteering options but then loved the idea of supporting a small, naturally grown, non-governmental organisation in Nepal. I got into contact with Hari Bhandary, the founder of Clinic Nepal, and asked if I could come and help them with another project apart from the Clinic.

When Hari and me talked on the phone for the first time he asked me if I could draw. He said that the walls of the Wolfgang Linke Kindergarten in Meghauli had been recently painted white and that they needed someone to draw educational material on the walls to make teaching easier. “You have to be very good since the drawings will be there for the next 10 years” is what he said.

Berichte vom Erdbebenprojekt in Thumka



Im April reiste Familie Harder nach Nepal um Hari, Meghauli und die Klinik nach langer Zeit  wieder zu besuchen. Ein Fokus der Reise war zudem der Besuch des Dorfes Thomka in der Erdbebenregion Ghurka, für das Mitarbeiter der Uniklinik Freiburg Geld gespendet hatten. Den vollständigen Bericht mit vielen Fotos kann man hier einsehen...

Auch Hari hat einen langen Bericht mit vielen Bildern auf Englisch verfasst, der einen schönen Überblick über ein tolles und erfolgreiches Projekt gibt.

Juni Update von Hari

Namaste !!
Clinic Nepal Short report.
The Story of FSU ( Florida State University, USA ) GPE ( Global Peace Exchange, FSU student organization) About 6 years ago, I got a call from a friend of mine Dr. Robert Lee from Florida, he was asking me to rescue his Professor’s Granddaughter and her team from FSU who were in a trouble in Nepal . During this time in Nepal, there was political unrest. Such as Demonstration, Strikes. I remember that days their team were in very difficult situation in Kathmandu, I gave them food and shelter and also proposed to them about running summer scout school in Meghauli. That situation has now turned very fruitful. Many Scouts, Locals, GPE , FSU students are being benefitted. This has also made our connection with FSU more stronger. I came to know that Clinic Nepal is one of the organizations that has been in continuous relation with FSU for a long time. I am very happy getting to know about this. Currently, We have 4 students from FSU and 1 from BSC in our GPE team in Meghauli. They are actively working in the Kindergarten, Scouts and community building.

1. The team teaches English to local people in the Community building

2. This year, we have planned to lay 57 Dustbins. Half of the dustbins are already on the Project site and the team has already started painting, they are also going to repaint the dustbins from last year.

3. 500 cotton bags are ready for Distribution, the bags are in Dark green color this year.

4. The GPE team are also teaching English to Wolfgang Kindergarten’s Teachers and also help them in the Kindergarten.

5. The GPE team has already distributed teaching materials to the Three Kindergartens ( Aasha ko Kiran Kindergarten, Daldale. Parbat Kindergarten, Sukranagar. Wolfgang Kindergarten, Dharampur. )
We also have 1 German volunteer in Daldale. She teaches German Language to the Older Kids of the Hostel. We also have one Danish Doctor, Signe. She has been working in Clinic as General Practitioner since March, 2017 and she will be here until end of July. We just repaired the Ambulance, it cost about 2,700 Euro. I have attached the photos of Ambulance in this mail.

On 29th June, 16 French Medical Students are arriving. They will be repainting Clinic’s outside wall, the temple behind Clinic and Aasha ko Kiran Kindergarten, Daldale. 2 more students from FSU and 1 more from BSC ( Birmingham Southern College ) are also arriving soon.
 

Kind Regards with Love, Hari and Family.
