June 2, 2015 – Takukot, Nepal – With special thanks for this contribution to Jill Allison, Logistician with Team 3!
“Not sure the last set of photos loaded properly as we have only intermittent access to internet. I suppose it is a wonder we have any at all considering where we are. Mountain views and lots of activity in the village of Takuakot.
The school is mandated to open tomorrow and they were hastily constructing cabin type classrooms – Nepal’s version of portables – today. Without enough skilled labour to rebuild key buildings quickly things get held up even as the will to return to normal is there. The lard school has cracks in every wall and gaping chasms on every floor. And yet, the teachers welcomed us as they were planning their program and invited us to sit for awhile as they did their work.
The clinic was much more organized but just as busy today. All good. Still seeing some earthquake related trauma and doing surveillance for diseases that haunt a disaster like spectres- cholera, typhoid, dengue, malnutrition and maternal health problems. Big wind and little rain tonight. Let’s see what tomorrow brings.
