Presentation: Nepal Health Initiatives
At our meeting on March 21, Bonnie Thomas from the Rotary Club of Denver Southeast reported on two health-related projects in Nepal:   
  • Providing education and aid to women with POP (pelvic organ prolapse), a condition that is exacerbated by women carrying heavy loads
  • Dental camps focused on teaching children to care for their teeth.
The photo below shows Nepalese children awaiting their dental exams with various emotions:
