Theresa Ruby and Ross Gray of GlobalHouse met with Dr. Neupane from the Kansas City Nepalese Society to discuss how we could jointly help Nepal. First, we discussed what we were both doing to aid in the earthquake disaster relief. Then, we talked about how we might work together in the future to address the many social, medical and economic needs in Nepal.
Dr. Neupane is an assistant professor of medicine and an oncologist and especially interested in helping in medical needs and education. He was also one of the founding members of the America Nepal Medical Foundation.
Finally, we discussed the fact that Nepal needs long-term structural change and development. It is a difficult undertaking and will take many years, but if enough people help it is possible and can mean so much for Nepal and the Nepali people.
