The Joint Disaster Response Team of ZAKA, United Hatzolah and F.I.R.S.T continued to work on two tracks today (Friday), assisting in the locating, search and recovery for missing Israeli trekker Or Asraf and offering emergency first aid assistance to dozens of local residents in the remote villages to the north west of Kathmandu.

The teams allocated to the search for Or Asraf concentrated all the information available about the hiker from multiple sources and sightings, in order to create the most accurate estimate of this likely whereabouts. This, in cooperation with all the relevant bodies including, among others, the Israeli Foreign Ministry, the IDF, the various insurance companies and the family.

The area concerned is extremely difficult to reach, given the many landslides and avalanches since the earthquake on Saturday. Access is only by helicopter and searching must take place on foot.

The mobile clinic, the first to arrive in these areas since the quake last Saturday, saved lives on at least one occasion - providing urgent antibiotic treatment to a young boy who was in imminent mortal danger of meningitis, with a very severe ear infection.

Click here to see the emergency mobile clinic in action in one of the remote villages.

Narration translation:  "This emergency mobile clinic has been set up by the Israelife Joint Disaster Response Team of ZAKA, United Hatzolah and F.I.R.S.T volunteers in a remote village in the hills west of Kathmandu. No emergency team has reached this area since the earthquake.  Here you can see local residents lining up for treatment, this is the gate and entrance into the clinic and to the triage area where all members of the team are working, giving emergency medical treatment, medications. The team is discussing a medical issue."

During its third day of operations in Nepal, ZAKA volunteers in the Joint Israeli Response Team ride out in jeeps to small far-flung villages. There they found devastation, injured people desperately waiting for treatment and many bodies that need to be recovered.

Watch this short movie (English translation):

"We are here in a village where there are many severely damaged buildings. Much destruction and damage. Here we are working on someone we found on the rubble who has broken bones, a broken leg. There are other injured people here and we are treating them, nidach

You can see all the devastation here in the village, damaged houses in the rest of the village.

We are here with the Nepalese army and this is the first time that anyone has reached this village or perhaps even this region.

We are now offering treatment to those who need it."
