Covid Reaches Gorkha – GDS asked to fund oxygen supply

After 12 weeks of lock-down, Coronavirus is now spreading in Nepal largely due to workers in India returning across the border to their homes throughout Nepal. sadly 10 cases have now been confirmed in Gorkha and with limited resources GDS has been approached to help.  As a recent post shows, the hospital is still only half built so wards are in a range of nearby buildings.  In 2017 we were pleased to supply the hospital with 2 oxygen concentrates which is sufficient in normal times, but now our Gorkha committee are working with the hospital to supply additional tanks of oxygen and £1,000 has been made available from GDS to be used as seen fit to help COVID victims in the hospital.

Keep safe our Gorkha friends.
