Today, the Kathmandu Relief Team (KRT) worked from morning until night. All day, local volunteers and representatives from various organizations stopped by the base-camp to pick up supplies. We moved water, food, and medical supplies in and out of trucks, vans, and tents – non-stop. We also welcomed the Venerable Metteya Sakyaputta to the base camp. He brought with him several suitcases of medical supplies from Canadian donors, and the afternoon and evening were spent creating an inventory of our supplies. Finally, we also spent a great deal of time on phones and on the internet connecting with pharmaceutical vendors and other organizations in need of supplies for remote villages and children’s homes. All in all, we were able to give 1,848 L of water, 2,891 packages of biscuits, and 966 packages of noodles, as well as medical supplies!
