Our next relief expedition was to Chehere, a small village in the Kavre District, about a two hour drive from Kathmandu. Tewa has been providing relief to areas where they know locals on the ground – either to grantees, or in this case, to the home village of the Tewa bus driver.

We set off in the morning in the packed Tewa bus with a few other volunteers. Chehere is located on the side of a mountain overlooking the Bhotekoshi river – it was a chance to get up into the gorgeous countryside of mountainous Nepal.

We were stopped several times along the way by police security checkpoints. At our last stop, the police asked if we needed a security detail to accompany us – there had been looting of relief buses further up the mountain. Although the police and army are a common presence, Nepalis have been disappointed with the government response to the disaster: there has yet to be a clear or comprehensive response to emergency needs, and there has been no word on how rebuilding is to begin. The Nepali people – with the help of NGOs – have been doing all of the work themselves.

Damage in Chehere. Two people died in this small village, including a fifteen year old girl.

Chehere primarily needs food and shelter – most of the village’s food supply was destroyed when the granaries collapsed. We pulled up to find a huge crowd waiting for us on the side of the road.

In what seems to be a developing theme, the two of us provided hours of entertainment for the local kids just by looking funny and butchering their language in an attempt to communicate. They found everything we did hilarious, which at least kept them out of their parent’s hair.

After all the goods were distributed at the town center, some of the Tewa volunteers took a motorbike further up the mountain with supplies for the Dalit people. Dalits are untouchables in the Nepali caste system, and therefore aren’t allowed to mingle with the other villagers. It started to rain, we got back on the bus, and after a quick dinner at a local fishing village, we made our way back to Kathmandu.

    jenes harter schlag gegen die parasiten
    normalisiert die funktion des magendarmtraktes
    vernichtet samtliche arten von helminthen
    leitet aus seinem korper die abfallprodukte der parasiten heraus.

    Parasiten, die schreckliche komplikationen auslosen:

    alle moglichen arten von invasionen in kurzester zeit
    leitet aus dem korper chip abfallprodukte der parasiten heraus
    reinigung dieses organismus von toxinen
    funktion des immunsystems, endokrinen systems, verdauungs-, nerven- und herzkreislaufsystems
    vor erneuter ansteckung, bildet ein pathogenes mileau im organismus des menschen daruber hinaus verstarkt die abwehrkraft

    parazitol sanft an den menschen — hart fur chip helminthen
    „die meisten menschen ahnen das nicht einmal, dass der organismus eines jeden zweiten mit parasiten befallen ist.
    In 95 der falle lost chip prasenz der helminthen keinerlei symptome taktlos, bis zu dem zeitpunkt, an dem sie irreparable schaden den inneren organen zugefugt haben und die funktion aller systeme des organismus gestort haben.

    Gegenwartig ist nur das mittel parazitol in der lage, den organismus vollkomen vonseiten beliebigen parasiten zu befreien, von jenen es uber 250 arten gibt. dieses erzeugt im menschlichen organismus ein mileau, das den vorgang des parasitierens fuer sich zerstort.
    Die erfahrung meiner patienten bestatigt, dass parazitol das wirksamste und sicherste mittel fur die vernichtung des weiteren ausleitung aller arten der invasionen ist echt, einschlie?lich von eiern, das keine wiederansteckung zulasst.
    Die positive wirkung wird mit 100 der falle erreicht.

    Normalisiert chip funktion des magendarmtraktes
    vernichtet samtliche moeglichkeiten von helminthen
