Three weeks after the disaster, the Blossomwood Foundation brought 10 pieces of luggage filled with 347 Sawyer water filters, 146 lbs of plant proteins, the most needed antibiotics, anti-diarrhea, anti-inflammatory medications, and many other needed medical supplies to this devastated region.
While on the ground, we were able to purchase close to 7,000 lbs. of rice, 2,000 lbs. of potatoes, 1,000 lbs. of lentils and many other much needed food staples to feed over 1,000 people living in the tent communities around Kathmandu. We were also able to buy roofing supplies for 10 severely damaged houses.
Water filters have been installed in many tent communities, schools and health posts. Smaller filters have been given to poorest families who live very far from the fresh water source.
Lowe's in Huntsville donated 120 solar lights.
Nepalese community in Huntsville donated several thousands of Tylenol, Ibuprofen and anti-diarrhea pills.
