In 2009, Bayalpata Hospital was an abandoned shell in a remote corner of Nepal. It was brought back to life by Possible, an American NGO. Each day, hundreds of patients flow through its corridors, but the doors to the newly renovated operating room remain padlocked.
The hospital needs an MDGP, a doctor who can also perform C-sections. But persuading someone to live in such a remote place is difficult. Possible’s first hire quit within 24 hours of arriving.
Now Dr Shree Ram Tiwari is stepping up to the plate. To provide life-saving surgeries here, Possible must find a way to entice him to stay for the long run.
