Nepal Relief Earthquake Fund

The devastating April 25th earthquake in Nepal, responsible for 8,617 deaths and counting, has weighed heavily on all of our hearts; however for Dr. Andrew Catron, this tragic event struck a very personal chord. Through St. Anthony Summit Medical Center’s Global Health Initiatives program, Dr. Catron has been on multiple mission trips to Nepal and helped many women achieve a higher standard of living by providing much-needed gynecological surgical services at St. Anthony’s sister hospital in Nepal, Scheer Memorial Hospital. You can read about this safe haven for the Nepalese here: http://scheermemorialhospital.blogspot.com. The April 25h earthquake and subsequent aftershocks have rocked this beautiful, peaceful nation, and many Nepalese are still in dire need of medical attention. Swan Mountain Women’s Center was happy to donate to the cause, and you can do so too by following this link to the Centura’s Nepal Relief Earthquake Fund: https://www.centuraglobalhealth.org/cgh/support-us/nepal-earthquake-relief-fund/.
