Since the first earthquake struck on 25th April our teams in Nepal have been providing frontline emergency rehabilitation to injured people. Our physiotherapists are supporting injured people in hospitals in Kathmandu, Bidur, Trisuli and Chautara.

Sunil Pokhrel is one of the Handicap International physiotherapists at the Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital. In this short film Sunil talks about his work and we meet 18-year-old Ramesh who was buried under rubble when the earthquake struck. Ramesh lost both his legs in the disaster - our teams are supporting him in his recovery.
