Most of the 35,000 residents of the Kathmandu suburb lost their hillside homes, which collapsed or were damaged beyond repair by the earthquakes and aftershocks that have besieged the region. Among the hundreds of volunteers on the Scientology Disaster Response Team in Nepal are a team of doctors, a nurse and paramedics who have had their skills put to the test in many disasters. They are doctors, nurses and paramedics who travel to disaster sites to give aid to those in need. 

Brought to Nepal by the Scientology Volunteer Ministers international headquarters, these are veterans of disaster response who travel to remote areas to dress wounds, perform minor surgeries, set broken bones, administer antibiotics and assist in any task that’s needed. Their presence in remote outposts is invaluable.
