‘Post­man’ tak­ing kind­ness to Nepal

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

ARMED with money for sup­plies and more than 150 toys, Lew Tuck will begin his jour­ney to Nepal to help in the wake of the coun­try’s dev­as­tat­ing earth­quakes.

Mr Tuck will leave next week and said he planned to spend three weeks in Nepal with his in­ter­na­tional team, as­sist­ing where he could.

How­ever, Mr Tuck said he only con­sid­ered him­self a “post­man” who de­liv­ered the kind­ness and dona­tions given by oth­ers.

Mr Tuck and his wife Sue Tuck, from Whit­sun­day Hear­ing, reg­u­larly visit the Hi­malayas and work as part of the Hi­malayan Health and Hear­ing pro­gram, but his wife will not be join­ing him this time.

Mr Tuck said he would also work to put women with health is­sues in con­tact with trained pro­fes­sion­als who could help and also hand out much-needed san­i­tary sup­plies.
