Earthquake in Nepal : 10 days on

(Paris, 06/05/2015) Doctors of the World is fully mobilized to assist victims

Ten days after the earthquake, as the rubble is being cleared in Kathmandu and Nepal continues to count the dead and the casualties, Doctors of the World humanitarian aid is on its way to the worst affected regions. The organisation is setting up clinics in Sindhupalchok district to assist isolated populations in places where the healthcare system is in a state of total collapse. Almost 90% of the country’s health centres—many in this district to the east of Kathmandu—have been destroyed, depriving people of access to medical care.

The 50-day-long war in Gaza left a land of desolation. Much needs to be done to put Gazans, the Gaza strip and its health care system back onto their feet.
