2 years ago on the 25th April 2015, a massive 7.8 magnitude earth quake shock the foundations of Nepal, lowered the height of Everest and killed an estimated 9,000 and injured 22,000 people.
Whilst deploying to assist with Search and Rescue after the Earthquake, SARAID became aware of the activities of Nepal Scouts who were helping to assist in the earthquake relief efforts .
True to the aims of Scouting and Guiding, members of Nepal
Scouts came together and helped in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake and in the rebuilding phase after the disaster.
Recognizing the contribution that the Scouts made, SARAID wanted
to help Nepal Scouts further develop rescue and medical skills so that they could be even more effective when the next earthquake hits Nepal.
Working with Nepal Scouts, SARAID helped develop a specific Scout Medical and Rescue Techniques course (known as SMART), that would be delivered by SARAID to Scouters, Rovers, Rangers and Scouts in Nepal.
Early in 2017 we ran a pilot course at Sundarijal Scout training Centre, 15km North East from Kathmandu, for more than 60 participants which proved to be a great success.
Going forward SARAID would like to repeat the course, running it 2 or 3 times a year training another 60 or so participants each time. To do this we need your help.
On learning about the project, SARAID’s patron Extreme Diver, TV Presenter and Adventurer, Andy Torbet was keen to be involved in helping raise funds for the training to continue and approached Suunto UK, who very kindly donated a Suunto Ambit 3 HR Black worth over £300 for SARAID to raffle off to raise funds for this project.
This is your chance to win that brand new, state of the art Adventurers smart watch and at the same time, support SARAID and Nepal Scouts
