As usual the HRA has completed its mission to provide Medical Service and Rescue Assistance in the mountain at Manang & Pheriche Aid-post during the autumn season 2016. Due to the Snow Storm in Thorong Pass in 2014 and 25th April, 2015 Earthquake, HRA had to close the medical post at the middle of the season & number of trekkers were also decreased in the past years. Nevertheless we could feel that the no. of trekkers are increasing slowly this season. Both Manang and Pheriche Aid-post were conducted smoothly.

Dr. Jonathan Simon Reisman, USA, Ms. Anna Mirian Wexler, USA and Dr. Dinesh Deonarain, Canada volunteered in Manang Aid-post and Satellite clinic in Thorang Phedi. Dr. Mukhiya Ghale also partly volunteered at Manang Aid-ost during November. Mr. Thaneshwar Bhandari and Indira Ojha were working Manang Aid-post this season.
Dr. Birgit Maass, German, Dr. Anne Louise Roberts, British and Mr. Peris Wyn Roberts, British volunteered at Pheriche Aid-post. Mr. Gobinda Bashyal and Mr. Jit Bahadur Thapa Magar were working at Pheriche Aid-post in this season.

Both Manang and Pheriche team were excellent in this season.
