The Czech trauma team which has been helping to deal with the consequences of the devastating earthquake in Nepal returned home on Friday. The 30-member team, made up of twenty doctors and nurses and ten firefighters, was helping to bring the injured down from hard-to-reach villages in the mountains. The rescuers operated in Melamchi, around 40 kilometres to the north-east of the Nepali capital of Kathmandu. They concluded their mission there on Monday. Since it started work on May 1, the trauma team provided medical assistance to over 1,100 people. It is leaving much of its equipment and medical supplies in Nepal for the use of the local health authorities.
