The cargo aircraft of Samaritan’s Purse landed in Kathmandu this afternoon carrying almost 15 tons of medical supplies to support Nepal as it battles the second wave pandemic. These essential health and safety materials and medical equipment will be distributed among 22 hospitals across Nepal including UMN’s hospital in Tansen, United Mission Hospital Tansen. Thank you Samaritan’s Purse for this tremendous and timely help.

, Tansen Hospital Director writes, "Many thanks to Samaritan's Purse for this gift of equipment and supplies.  We are really grateful for the support we have received to help us care for severely ill COVID-19 patients on our isolation ward.  So far, we have treated 169 patients on our isolation ward during the last 7 weeks, and our fever clinic remains busy too.  A shipment like this is a great encouragement."
