Katherine Furland, 19, of Essex Junction traveled to Nepal to help with medical relief after the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck on April 25.  She is an EMT and is volunteering in the Kathmandu Orthopedic Hospital — changing bandages and splinting broken bones alongside American relief doctors and Nepali nurses.  The hospital has many tents set up, including an emergency room tent. She was working in the hospital when the 7.3 magnitude earthquake struck on May 12.
