Medical Evacuation in Walapa, Dolaka District

MSF teams last worked in Nepal in 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic

In Nepal, MSF teams have responded to a series of natural disasters, including floods and earthquakes.

MSF teams responded on a large scale in the country following earthquakes in April and May 2015. We provided medical and mental health consultations, as well as shelter and food.

In 2020, we responded to COVID-19 by providing a 24/7 mental health hotline for people struggling with the pandemic.


“Some villages are 80-100 percent destroyed. It was beyond my expectations.”
