This is a short update and being done by mobile phone so please excuse the typos.
News from SIRC is positive. As the aftershocks are subsiding, the patients are being moved back inside the building.
Ten new SCI patients were admitted today, now that they have received all the acute care they need, their 3-month rehabilitation begins. More SCI patients are expected. We know of 17 SCI patients likely to be referred to SIRC from Bir Hospital within the next day or two. More SCI patients will cone. Our capacity has been increased from 52 beds to 115 beds. The expanded ward has been established and preparation for additional medical supplies & equipment is underway.
So very busy at SIRC but organized and coordinated. Hats off to Esha, Dipesh and the SIRC team for their focus and commitment to the survivors of this devastating quake.
More later. Thanks to you all for your thoughts & prayers, and patience while the online donation tool is being made available. Stay tuned.
