More Bridges to Come

Until there
Until there's a bridge

Currently three bridges are under construction at Bagapati, Ghadi, and Jaldevighat. All three bridges are assembled and are awaiting final arrangements by local authorities. The site at Ghadi is a replacement for a former bridge which was washed out in 2005 by one of Nepal's enourmous global-warming flood which are scouring its valleys. At the moment people are fording the river like these women carrying cut grass in this photograph taken at Ghadi.

More bridge-building volunteers

EcoSystems has benefitted from the skills and attention of many volunteers. In July a team visited the Gadhi bridge site, which had been devastated by an enormous flood in 2004. To reach the site, the team had to ford the river where access bridges had been destroyed. Here is part of the team, assisted by local people, making their way to the site.

After many delays due to political unrest, the foundations for the Gadhi bridge have been completed. As soon as the promised co-payment from the local authorities is received the bridge will be erected. The thank-you note to all donors, including several from GlobalGiving is attached.
