One week has passed since the magnitude 7.9 earthquake had hit Nepal.
The huge shake had destroyed houses and roads to the remote villages in the mountains.
Aid have not reached many of the villages.
The first dispatch team from Japan conducted medical mission at Sindhu Sadabahar Hospital in Sindhupalchowk of Bagmati District.

At Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH). We later found out that AMDA Nepal’s pediatric surgeon and orthopedic doctors working at TUTH started helping the victims on the day of the disaster.
Since the remote villages in the mountain area have not received enough support, AMDA have will be conducting a relief mission in those areas.
The first and third teams have left Kathmandu for Sindhupalchowk where the second team continues its medical mission.
The frequent aftershocks are forcing the affected people live outside of their homes.
They are in need of tents for temporary shelter.
