Dear APPNA Family,

Last year after the earthquake in Nepal, a team of APPNA physicians went there to volunteer and set up medical camps.

While there, the team met with local Rotary Club and also collaborated with Rotary International from Madera, California under leadership of Dr. Afzal Arain.  Around $30,000 was raised and handed over to Rotary Nepal.  It was decided that a community center which is earthquake proof, will be built in the village of Lele.  A few years ago, a PIA plane had crashed in this area and the community there wanted to honor the victims of the crash.

We are pleased to announce that the Community Center in Lele was recently completed and inaugurated by the Pakistani ambassador to Nepal, Dr. Mazhar Javed.

This community center will now be used for medical camps, health awareness classes and for educational purposes.

We remain grateful to our members and to Rotary Club for its generous support.
