Shree Poudel has been working hard in the days following the earthquake helping to transport the patients from the villages to the hospitals in the larger cities. He also was able to secure tarps from a factory near the Indian border, and later returned to purchase Zinc for the shelters. Shree is currently working with Ramesh Dharmala from Medical Mercy Canada in the Dhading District to build school buildings for the children who have not been able to attend school since the earthquakes destroyed their buildings.
