Fall 2018

Fall brings the harvest season so it is a perfect time to introduce the newest member of the Detroit family: Buckets of Rain. Buckets of Rain's urban gardens in Highland Park provide vegetables for homeless shelters, neighbors and their prescription for vegetables program at the S.A.Y. Detroit Family Health Clinic. Doctors at the clinic write “prescriptions” for patients who then visit Bucket of Rain’s one-acre urban garden across from the clinic for the recommended vegetables at no charge. An equally unique program has started at our Nepal Health Posts and Birthing Centers: portable ultrasound. As D2N builds more health posts and birthing centers, we are evaluating how to expand the services rendered. Ultrasound evaluations during preganancy is one example how we can deliver more sophisticated services benefiting pregnant women. The local community in Dipsung is currently formulating a proposal to D2N which will integrate ultrasound with our check ups during pregnancy.

During my recent trip to Nepal I had the opportunity to view the future site of our fourth health post and birthing center in Baspani, see the latest progress on our health post in Sapteshwor, learn how well the Dindu/Dipsung Health Post and Birthing Center is functioning, meet with our ngo partners, Nava Jyoti and Creative Porter's Society, visit the site of Baikalpik Primary School and attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Kalika Secondary School in Bakachol. It was a great trip!
