When an earthquake struck Nepal on 25th April this year, a Bhutanese team was immediately sent to deliver medical aid, Commanded by His Majesty The King.
In Nepal, they amazed all who came to visit their camps by their self-sufficient set up, they earned the respect of other international volunteer groups in the area with their efficiency, and gained the friendship, goodwill, and deep gratitude from the patients and community for their service.
The success of this team was due to the extremely motivated and inspired spirit with which they went, having received in person, the Command from His Majesty, that this was a mission of Dharma– to withhold nothing in the act of service.
This documentary produced by the Bhutan Broadcasting Service tells the moving story.
Dr Singye Namgyel (DeSuup) says
I feel privileged to be one of the volunteers in the Medical Team. I still remember every inch of our little service and contribution we could make to our neighbor in need. I still have photos of affected children and patients. I have been keeping in touch through facebook and email.
Thank you for sharing this touching story. I feel the great regard and thankfulness the people of Nepal feel toward those who came from a nearby country, sent by royal decision, stepping forward to rescue and offer aid so unselfishly. Your open hearts and diligent service to those in need has inspired me, showing me the way charity, kindness and brotherhood can manifest in our lives – if we just aim to do the best humanly possible towards all others. Thank you for caring.
