HELP Missions heading to Nepal in upcoming mission

HELP Missions heading to Nepal in upcoming mission

(WABI) - In the TV5 studio this morning is president and executive director of Help Missions, Steven Harrison. Harrison is leaving next week for his next mission to Nepal. To donate supplies, find out how to donate or more information on HELP Missions, visit helpmissions.me.

On our next journey to Nepal, myself and Carl Bottorf will be returning to the Gorkha district, a nice 4-5 hour drive on some of the most treacherous roads in the world, to distribute our initial supply of birthing kits: Welcome to the World kit (WTW) and our Deliver Me Safely kit (DMS).

Our WTW kit is comprised of some basic medical supplies (Nitrile gloves, apron, underpad, sterile gauze, receiving blanket, scalpel, etc.) and our DMS kit has the WTW kit and additional supplies, such as a head lamp, Vitamin K, a Baby Doppler and gel and Ampicillin, as needed.

After we deliver the much needed kits our plan is to locate additional remote clinics that we hope to add to our list of clinics that we are able to supply.

I am also trying to secure infant warmers that have renewable heat sources for premature born infants and underweight infants. These are so essential to the increased concern for newborns suffering from the risks of hypothermia. Unfortunately warmers are quite expensive and our hope is to raise $4500 which would purchase 10 of these warmers.

Once we return to Kathmandu, our team will be sitting down with local friends and contacts to plan out our April 2019 goal of establishing a 5-7 day medical camp in an area that has very little access to basic healthcare needs. This will allow us to bring a team of volunteers made up of medical professionals and lay persons to help facilitate a wonderful opportunity for the people of Nepal and for the volunteers.

If you are interested in helping in any way, either financially, to volunteer or both, please reach out to us. We are glad to take your call and email.
