Local Hero Serves with Support from One Heart World-Wide

Umesh Chaudhary

“I have received this award due to my hard work and my responsibility towards the community providing health services on time. After earthquake we had nothing to continue the health services because the health post building was totally damaged and I wanted to resume all the services from the health post as soon as possible. I quickly contacted the District Health Office Sindhupalchok and on their suggestion I coordinated with One Heart World Wide to help us continue with the maternity services from the health post, as we didn’t have building and equipment. I couldn’t imagine the way One Heart World-Wide responded to our request, as they were so quick in setting up the delivery tent, installing solar suitcase and supplied all essential equipment’s for the tent. We conducted around 7-10 deliveries in first two months after earthquake in the tent provided by One Heart World Wide.  This would have not been possible if they had not supported us. Aftermath of earthquake on 25th April, One Heart World Wide support has played significant role for me to achieve this Earthquake Hero 2015 award.”
