Bring Clean Water to 3000 Tibetan Villagers

Dec 26, 2012

Phase 1 Complete: Water Flows to the Village

Good news!  Pipeline has been laid down from the
reservoir pools to the water tanks and water now flows continuously to the
village. This has made a huge difference for the lives of the villagers and
people of the surrounding areas. They are able to have water for their daily
needs without spending an hour every day carrying heavy jugs of water down the
mountain.  Fortunately, the pipelineswere installed before the winter temperatures froze the ground, and the
pipelines were dug deep enough to prevent them from freezing in the harsh
Tibetan winter.

We needed to act quickly in order to ensure that the installation of the water pipeline would meet local
codes and withstand extreme climate conditions. As such, the villagers took out
a loan to finance the additional costs associated with the engineering and
construction of the project. The monies that have been donated from the project
so far have helped to buy materials and pay off some of the construction loan.

The next phase of the project will be construction of the wash rooms and toilet facilities. The
villagers have asked us to extend a heartfelt thank you….They continue to be
touched by the generosity of people from all over the world who have helped
them secure this great positive change in their lives. They thank especially the
donors that are providing continuing support.

With heartfelt warm wishes,

The Tibet Humanitarian Project
