Thank you all.
Toby and David of Global Encounter were recently in Nepal volunteering their time at the orphanage. Toby donated to Global Giving a year ago for the orphanage project in Nepal. Six months ago, they asked if they could volunteer at the orphanage. Global Reach International coordinated with Toby and David to make this a reality. They helped the orphanage to fix their drainage and hand pump while volunteering. Please see pictures and below writings.
From the field:
At the heart of the orphanage is the water source: a hand pump, drawing the cleanest water of any in the town, where the children and many locals drink, bathe, and wash. Shockingly, water from the pump drains into a ditch of stagnant putrescence--a tepid cocktail of who-knows-what that literally bubbles in the sun from unknown chemical reactions beneath the surface. Knowing that stagnant water is a major health risk, we knew this would have to be our project for the week.
