Medical Mission to Nepal
We are excited to announce that our own Dr. Jeffrey Segil will be traveling to Nepal in October 2017 on a surgical mission trip to the city of Bharatpur. We are happy to watch this trip unfold as it draws closer and proud of Dr. Segil's involvement in Operation Medical! #Staytuned
The City of Bharatpur has a population of over 500,000 people who are primarily peasant farmers cultivating mainly food and cash crops such as rice, maize, wheat, beans, lentils, mustard and vegetables. Bharatpur is the major maize producing area of Nepal. The area is also known for its poultry industry. The local hospital is a teaching hospital with 750 beds and serves approximately a quarter of a million people a year from the District of Chitwan and surrounding areas including neighboring states of India.
