REPORTAGE: Coping Response of Physiotherapy Student Volunteers in Disaster Management: Field Report from Nepal Earthquake - PROF.DR.C.K.SENTHIL KUMAR

Nepal Earthquake also called as Gorkha Earthquake occurred on 25th April 2015 killing more than 8,800 people and living more than 23,000 injured. It was the worst natural disaster to affect Nepal since 1934, Nepal Bihar Earthquake. This Earthquake triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest making it the deadliest day on the mountain in the history killing at least 19 people whereas 250 people were reported missing. Many centuries old buildings were destroyed, hundreds and thousands of people were rendered homeless with entire villages becoming flat across many districts in Nepal. I submit the field report as a team leader of our team from our college Hosmat Hospital Educational Institute, presently known as Bethel Medical Mission Indo Nepal Academy.

The experience of providing the service with my students in the earlier natural disaster management such as in Kashmir Earthquake, Tsunami in Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh Flood relief work and Chikungunya Relief Work at Kerala has helped me gain practical knowledge of planning and execution during a natural disaster by utilizing the student strength to their maximum potential in rehabilitation work consisting of medical, psycho social and community based rehabilitation.
