Emergency Response

Our parent organization Mountain Heart Nepal has responded to various emergencies occurring in the country. Besides the 2015 earthquake, Mountain Heart Nepal have responded to flooding in the Terai, rainstorm, and landslides.

Siddhasthali Rural Community Hospital staff work regularly with Mountain Heart Nepal to ensure adequate community-wide planning, preparedness and response program during emergencies.

Below are the activities of Siddhasthali Rural Community Hospital Emergency Response since its founding:

2020-2021

2. Distributed Oxygen Concentrators received from Direct Relief to rural government hospitals and health centres.
3. Provided emergency food parcels and flood relief items including tents to people affected by the 2021 flooding in Manang.
