Our KRT base camp seems to double in size each day, as do the number of people we are supplying. All day, we manage a frenzy of local volunteers, and local and international organizations – brothers, sisters, friends, and mothers – who are willing to give their time and energy to help the people of Nepal. We are happy to be a part of this relief effort – supplying all the water, food, and medical supplies we can – connecting as many aid workers as possible with the resources they need. The earth turns out the lights at night but we continue our efforts – we have a great team that is working tirelessly out of the goodness of their hearts.

Today we welcomed a huge truck from our Metta Family team in Lumbini. We received TWELVE TONS of water, rice, lentils, and other food to send out to hard-to-reach areas where few relief teams have gotten through. These supplies have already been organized into packs containing everything they need to feed individual families.

Medical supplies were in high demand today, and a small team of volunteers worked all afternoon to put together small bags of basic medical supplies to distribute in remote villages. The packs included first aid supplies, including wound care items, as well as pain relievers, fever reducers, sanitary pads, and Oral Rehydration Salt (ORS) for diarrhea.

All in all, we provided the following for further distribution:

Water- 1576 liters

Biscuits- 2176 packages

Noodles- 480 packages

We also provided 10 different individuals/organizations with everything from basic medical kits to more condition-specific supplies for medical teams.
