Sister Cecilia Simick shares these photos depicting some of the troubles they face in traveling with their mobile health clinic.
Greetings from Sister Cecilia in Surkhet.
When the rain came down the hills, rivers swelled and our mobile health team faced a lot of challenges in order to reach out to the poor patients in the remote villages of Surkhet, Jajarkot and Dailekh. The other day on the way to the clinic in the village of Dailekh Dist., there was a big land slide and hundreds of vehicles with the passengers were stranded on the road, the bulldozer which was supposed to remove the debris had flat tires and the police requested us to help them take the tire to be repaired and bring it back so that they would work on clearing the road. We had to drive a few miles away to a place where they could repair the tire. After two hours it was ready and finally the bulldozer could proceed. We were unable to conduct the clinic that day because it was already late. Rainy season is quite difficult to travel.
I am sending few of the pictures of the event. Keep us in your prayers.
