The life of the people of Nepal worsened due powerful earthquakes which hit some parts of the country. The poor were affected the most. Many lost their near and dear ones and their belongings, some were left handicapped for life without hands and legs. Many people were traumatized by this incident. Volunteers came from all over India, also different countries like China, Korea and USA to lend a helping hand. CHAI (Secunderabad) had organized medical camps and sent volunteers to reach out to the victims. With the help of Jesuit fathers, myself a Carmelite Missionary and other Congregations like the Daughters’ of the cross and St. Anne’s' of Charity rendered our service. We were mostly sent to remote and lonely areas, with bad roads and huge mountains where government help had not reached. We helped the people by giving medical care as well as the psychological support. We went to different districts each day with food kits and medicines to help the people. I had challenging experience and am grateful to my congregation for giving me this opportunity of helping my people.
