‘Nepal is my second home. All love me here. I have not got such love in Japan’, Japanese Public Health nurse Kanako Kon shared her feelings before representatives of the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Finance, Home and Education, and JICA. She arrived here as a volunteer two years ago.
Government officers, who reached at District Health Office, Sindhuli, in course of monitoring the economic and social empowerment programmes launched at different places of the Sindhuli corridor on the BP Highway, constructed by JICA, were very impressed by the works of Kanako.
She arrived in Sindhuli in the beginning of 2015, before the April 25 earthquake. She continuously provided health related information to women of Sindhuli and measures to be safe from diseases for two years. Kanako is also involved in treatment of uterus prolapsed cases as well as other sexual diseases.
Sharing her feelings, Kanako said, “Many women were found suffering from uterus prolapse and living without treatment. In the beginning, the women used to laugh at me for not understanding my language. I taught them about the measures to be safe from uterus prolapse after learning the Nepali language.”
The Japanese volunteer said the rural women are vulnerable to many health related problems. She added the rural women are at high health risk as they are compelled to live under superstition and ignorance.
Similarly, she said the girl students have the same health-related problems and it is necessary to give knowledge about hygiene and sex education.
