In April 2018, a team of dentists, physicians, pharmacists, and volunteers went to the remote regions of Nepal where there is minimal to no medical support. KMF collaborated with Lions Club International during this mission.
We saw more people than we anticipated in Saptari. The team flew into Kathmandu and then flew to other locations. We completed 7 days of clinics with some travel time in between the locations.
