I'm excited to be in Nepal through December 2011 to work with our Nepali partners in moving the Chisang Clinic project forward. Our primary partner for the project, Debendra Karki (founder of the Chisang Clinic and the nonprofit Chisang Service Committee), will also be in Nepal with his family through February 2012. Debendra and I will meet with Chisang Service Committee board members to develop a project time line and a three-year plan for the clinic. We will shop for lighting and plumbing fixtures, interview contractors to install the fixtures and build partitions for two outpatient clinic rooms. This is the first step in making the building operational. Our goal is to open in April 2012 with a nurse and one assistant to provide first aid care and introduce our services to the community. I will also meet with Rotarians in Biratnagar and Itahari to introduce the Chisang Clinic project and ask for their support.
We're off to a great start, thanks in large part to our Global Giving donors (we exceeded our August Challenge goal by $1,000). Thank you to all of you who have supported the development of Chisang Clinic. You are making it possible for us to bring basic healthcare to thousands of impoverished families in rural Nepal. Please contact us if you have questions about the economic and environmental sustainability components of our project, or if you would like to learn about opportunities to support specific aspects of the project.
