Sing for Nepal

Wednesday 15th July 2015 at 7.45pm

Conducted by David Ogden

At the beginning of April, Dr Elena Hazelgrove-Planel, one of our sopranos, travelled to Nepal to spend a few weeks there as a volunteer GP working for the charity PHASE Worldwide. PHASE (Practical Help Achieving Self-Empowerment) works with mostly Nepalese staff in rural communities.

When the first earthquake struck on 25 April, Elena was in a village north west of Kathmandu, one of the worst affected areas. After six days she was evacuated and travelled to another village to the east - just before the second major earthquake happened. Elena was able to help treat the injured and was deeply moved and inspired by the spirit, generosity, hospitality and resilience of the Nepalese people.
