An MSF team visits heavily affected villages in the mountains to the north-west of Kathmandu by helicopter, where little or no assistance has reached. They did a health and damage assessment and provided basic medical assistance to patients. While the most critically injured people were evacuated in the days immediately after the earthquake, those remaining have been trapped in their villages as roads and walking tracks have been cut off by avalanches and landslides. MSF's teams are seeing people in need of basic healthcare, as well as a number of people presenting with wounds sustained in the earthquake that have now become infected.
