The surgical camps in Humla and Mugu have been successfully completed as per the schedule. Despite the continuous effect of monsoon through out the camp period, the turnout of patients in the camps was more than in previous years. Due to the rainfall and damage of runway in Simikot airport, the eye camp team was forced to travel from Surkhet to Simikot by a chartered helicopter. The number of patients seen and operated in Simikot and Gumgadhi are as tabulated below:
