Providing a mobile ambulance unit in Lumbini, Nepal.
In 2004, Reachout Now provided a mobile ambulance unit to Crossflow Nepal Trust, a local NGO. Crossflow Nepal Trust, in collaboration with the local government, operate this mobile medical unit three times week around rural areas of Lumbini, manned by volunteer doctors and nurses from the city hospital. In this area, local people had to walk miles and miles or wait days to get medical help. The local government, people and Crossflow were really grateful for the Reachout Now donation of the medical unit as this ensured that a greater number of people could be helped.
In 2012, after 8 years trustee Haresh and Jagruti with their children visited Nepal and during their trip they visited Lumbini where the Crossflow medical centre was still running strong and helping people in rural areas. Not only was the medical unit still running but trustees managed to go and visit the site in the mobile unit. The centre had looked after the unit for 8 years and this unit has helped thousands of people over the 8 year period.
