                                                                    ???Sindhupalchowk District???

On May 6th, a medical team of one doctor and three nurses from AMDA Damak hospital, replacing a previous AMDA Damak team, arrived in the activity site and joined in the medical mission along with one medical doctor from Japan. The team was able to see 22 patients, many of them suffering from problems such as external injuries, general physical problems etc. Some patients delayed to seek medical care for their injuries or physical problems because they thought they would heal on its own.
                                                                    As steep mountains are surrounding this area, due to frequent aftershocks, landslides are often seen in this area. According to a local person, the flood in last summer led to a major landslide few kilometers upper stream of the river, which destroyed houses in lower stream of the river. Therefore, local people decided to block the stream of this river and thus villages located in upper stream of the river were submerged in water. The unstable land after the great earthquake could easily lead to another disaster if rain continues., which need to be closely monitored. Communication connection is still unstable, and not enough relief supplies have distributed to some affected areas. Some of patients visited AMDA mobile clinic told the staff, “We lost everything from the earthquake, and we are sleeping on the wet ground at night in cold. My whole body aches.” “My house is completely gone. I have no idea how to survive with 11 children from now on.” 
                                                                    On May 6th, the fourth dispatched AMDA team from Japan has arrived in Nepal and moved to Sindhupalchowk on the next morning in order to participated in the on-going AMDA mobile clinic.

According to our team, the flight was full of rescue teams and media crews from different countries.  Due to the increase in the number of aid-flights and the limited capacity of the Airport facilities, the airplanes had to circle and wait for a long time above Tribhuvan Airport and many flights could not even land and had to head back.  According to our team the airport building was a chock-a-block with people everywhere they turn.
