Doctor Bhampa Rai (Professional General Surgeon) struggling to save one more human being – this time his better half

Dr. Bhampa is from Bada Bhutan and was exiled in 1992. Since then , he is connected with Bhutanese refugees and have provided services to them eternally either by involving himself personally with the needy or through policy making mechanism with various donors agencies who had taken responsibility to look after the Bhutanese refugee in camps since the Kankai Mai camp to present days. I remember, when several Bhutanese were dying in Kankai Mai camp he was the only doctor who regularly visited the huts whenever someone old or young was sick. He coordinated and guided the Bhutanese refugees to create an environment of self-protection mechanism by keeping surrounding clean in addition to his medical prescriptions. For this, as a first step of prevention, he invented and implemented dish washing pit (the 4-6fit rounded pit, covered by mud slap nicely and having a bamboo pipe concreting using around one Kilo cement ) to pore the dirty washing stuff and water into the pit – very helpful in reducing mosquito and flies breeding This system in the camps still continue in front of every Bhutanese hut . At Mai camp, he made compulsory to smearing the periphery of huts every day and directed to sweep the complex by gathering in groups with a aim of cleaning the camping area . This helped reduce daily high death rate of Bhutanese by that time calamity . The same pit system was adopted by the UNHCR and its policy implementing partners when they started their monitoring and administration .
Not only this, he is the person who has safe guarded still the records of where about and properties details of almost all Bhutanese refugees (made during “B- TRIPPLE – R- C’S” through respective Mandals and Members ) left over In Bhutan .
Dr Bhampa contributions to Bhutanese community have been immense and her wife support played an important role in his all endeavor. Now his wife Srimati Urlila Rai (whose kidney was defective since exile from Bhutan and was maintained by medical process) is plunged in to more dangerous situation and need a help ( I assumed ) either of dialysis system or by kidney transplant which cost heavy ( kidney transplantation more than 12 lakh rupees ) I strongly feel that it is time now for all of us to support Dr Bhampa in this crisis situation. It would be small recognition to his noval service if we can provide some financial support to his family. I request all Bhutnese refugee community settled abroad to come forward to provide financial assistance of any amount they wish directly to Dr Bhampa Rai through western Union and not from Money Gram as he suggested. Deliberately I’m not putting his contact detail as he may be busy with taking care of his wife and maintaining his own survival.
