Over fourty local leaders and professionals from villages in the Sindulpalchowk region managed to get away from the chaos of the aftermath of the earthquakes by attending a three day seminar run by the Natan team in partnership with Nepalese psychologists, social workers and representatives from the Asian Academy for Peace and Development, and the amazing Seven Summits Women Team.
In a relaxed atmosphere the participants learned post-trauma treatment methods, and received training in basic emergency medical care. Based on the tried and tested method of training the trainers, each participant was equipped with the skills not only to implement what they had learned, but also to teach others in their villages and home towns.
The seminar was also attended by Gil Haskel, head of the Israeli Foreign Office Development arm MASHAV, and Israeli Ambassador to Nepal Mr. Yaron Mayer. We thank them for their support and are looking forward to a productive partnership in the future.
