Humanitarian Paramedicine

Recently Leigh, an Australian paramedic volunteered as part of a joint Nepali / international humanitarian medical team in a remote village in Helambu Nepal, providing free primary health care to the community. Over 140 patients presented throughout the course of the clinic and this action shot taken by a team member is Leigh providing assistance to a village youth.

He was suffering from multiple small infected wounds to his legs that weren’t healing. Many youths in Nepal play footy barefoot and the reality is that many suffer from infections as a result. The team were able to clean and dress the wounds, supply some dressing and education to prevent infection, and prescribe oral Abs.

Health care should be free and accessible to all peoples. If you’re a health care expert and willing to assist our projects get in contact with us!
