New healthpost in Mirkot (Nepal) after earthquake

13 June 2017


On June 9 2017 the opening ceremony of a new health post in Mirkot in the Nepalese district of Gorkha took place.

Reconstruction gift

The health post building was constructed with the support of the Netherlands Leprosy Relief in conjunction with the Ministry of Health in Nepal. On June 9 the building has been inaugurated and handed over to the government of Nepal and the people of Mirkot as a post-​earthquake reconstruction gift.

The previous health post was completely destroyed by the earthquake. Patients could only be assisted in an emergency tent. The new health post is built according to the government guidelines. The construction of the building and the materials used will thus be more resistant to a possible new earthquake.
