Although the main building of the clinic was destroyed, we believe that another section, containing medical supplies and some shelter is still intact. More importantly, the clinic is staffed by a physician's assistant and former army medic, who have escaped injury and are helping local residents. There is also an open level area (unusual for this area) that we believe is suitable as a helicopter landing zone.
Approximately 7,000 people, many elderly and children live in the Baseri region and it is the northern most settlement in that section of Nepal, approximately 25 miles from the epicenter. People seeking medical care will likely go to the clinic, and we believe it could serve as a valuable staging area for medical assistance.
We have long been committed to the welfare of people in Nepal and would welcome the opportunity to help provide relief through our clinic and staff.
Please let me know if we can be of assistance or answer any questions about our facilities. Also, if there are other relief agencies or organizations that may benefit from our facilities and assistance please feel free to forward this message and my contact information.
