|Thank you for praying for the trip to Nepal. It went very well; everyone was kept safe as we travelled around the country and, most importantly, the young medics (8 of them plus 2 leaders) really engaged with the different medical experiences they had.|
We visited Tansen Mission Hospital which is a general hospital and then moved on to Green Pastures Hospital on Pokhara which is a leprosy hospital that has developed a more general rehabilitation and palliative care services. In both places they had the opportunity to shadow the local doctors and nurses which was very helpful in understanding the different ways of treating and caring for patients. We really appreciated the time that was given to us by all those we met. In addition, we visited Anandaban Hospital which is involved in leprosy research, met up with doctors involved in fistula care, community health and mental health training for church leaders (a project that MMN supported through PRIME).
There was time to go to the oldest church in Nepal, see the sunrise over the Annapurna range of the Himalayas and enjoy the local food, with momos being the favourite.
