Just over a week on from the earthquake that hitNepal near the capital city of Kathmandu, 39 out of 75 districts have been affected and at least 46 aftershocks have been felt.



The UK International Search and Rescue (UKISAR) team deployed by the Department for International Development (DFID) has been playing a key role in the relief effort:


A 4 year old female child with a serious leg injury was evacuated to a field hospital for ongoing treatment and in another case a young boy’s broken arm was treated using a plastic bottle as a splint.


The remnants of an overhanging brick built column have now been successfully removed from the teaching hospital and a temporary measure to improve the stability of the water tank put in place.
