Good news! Pipeline has been laid down from thereservoir pools to the water tanks and water now flows continuously to thevillage. This has made a huge difference for the lives of the villagers andpeople of the surrounding areas. They are able to have water for their dailyneeds without spending an hour every day carrying heavy jugs of water down themountain. Fortunately, the pipelineswere installed before the winter temperatures froze the ground, and thepipelines were dug deep enough to prevent them from freezing in the harshTibetan winter.
We needed to act quickly in order to ensure that the installation of the water pipeline would meet localcodes and withstand extreme climate conditions. As such, the villagers took outa loan to finance the additional costs associated with the engineering andconstruction of the project. The monies that have been donated from the projectso 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. Thevillagers have asked us to extend a heartfelt thank you….They continue to betouched by the generosity of people from all over the world who have helpedthem secure this great positive change in their lives. They thank especially thedonors that are providing continuing support.
With heartfelt warm wishes,
The Tibet Humanitarian Project
