Friday, 19th June

Our angel arrived at Dwarika's last night, an American man who was only in Nepal for two days. He wanted to take a helicopter trip to see Nepal from the sky, and simultaneously help the Nepalese . Since one of the villages scheduled for the coming week, has no landing area for a large helicopter we decided to drop a small relief package to one of the villages. The morning was busy with everyone quickly preparing the goods and shortly thereafter, James, Wendy (one of our volunteers) and Sonam (a team leader) left for the airport.

The weather was clear and it was a short trip north towards the Tibetan border. Unfortunately, our designated landing strip was not visible due to fallen rock, so we landed in a school yard, just south of the border. Sonam was in touch with the village to transfer the goods. We're not sure whether all of the goods got transferred, but we're happy knowing that we delivered items to those in need. During the few minutes we were unloading goods, a woman came to us asked if we could bring her elderly, sick mother to Kathmandu. The woman was so frail and had not walked since before the earthquake. A few minutes later, this woman and her mother were in the helicopter flying back to healthcare and safety.

In the evening, we had our second rotation of children from the camp spend the evening at the hotel. We brought over Anu, Pema, Sumi, Ang Tsering, Pasang and Tashi. We had a wonderful time with the kids at the barbecue and they had the time of their lives....eating, singing, watching television, playing games and taking their first hot bath!
