After April’s earthquakes in Nepal, Redpoint sprang into action – rescuing 33 people from four different areas, including search and rescue missions in the Annapurna region. The evacuees were a combination of Ripcord travel insurance clients and our partners’ customers in need.
Over a three week period, Redpoint worked with local aid organizations and international NGOs to deliver or directly facilitate the delivery of approximately 11,000 kg of aid, helping over 11 villages in the remote regions of Manasulu and Gorkha. Each village had been cut off from the rest of the country and this aid was the first relief these villages had received since the earthquake.
Our teams worked with locals and international NGOs to develop delivery methods to additional regions. This assistance helped the locals control the delivery of aid and relief supplies. Local partners are continuing to use this transport model to move aid supplies to local communities still suffering from the earthquake.
Redpoint provided medical support to the village of Laprak (near Gorka) via medical flights, with Redpoint doctors on the ground assisting with a variety of medical cases. We also worked closely with local first responders to assist in training and development for improved ambulance services.
Redpoint believes in supporting positive change. We are proud of our teams’ efforts in Nepal, and will continue to prepare to respond to the next natural disaster affecting our clients and the adventure travel community.
