News from Nepal
This is a very brief update as we’ve not been able to make any progress due to the current Coronavirus pandemic.
Keith, who is leading this project had to cancel his visit to Nepal (due in April) and likewise, Peter H (IGWR chair) also cancelled; so there has been little opportunity to progress with the planning.
Restrictions in Nepal are catching up with most of the world, so most people are staying home, and travel is restricted to essential trips only.

Hopefully we’ll all make use of this enforced pause to plan ahead and perhaps to make changes to what we do, and how we do it.And although we’re looking forward to moving forward with this project, it might be that this world-pause will give us an even better chance of success in the future.
The world is certainly being presented with an opportunity to re-think, and to realign with values are healthy and life-giving for all.If we learn from C-19, we might finally see that we are all connected, we must therefore care for each other if we want to care for ourselves.
The team of volunteers that together make up IGWR, and the team on the ground in Nepal are already breaking down the boundaries that keep so many in poverty. As we live through the C-19 shared experience I’m optimistic that the world might become more empathetic, and those of us that ‘have’ will share more with those that ‘have not’.
As we wait it out in our “stay-at-home” isolation it is a good time to check-in with the IGWR-Nepal website, and also see what ‘s happening day-by-day via Facebook.
It’s also a good time to plan for future fundraising, and to share YOUR story, for as we share with others why we give, and why we care, so we invite them to look at the same questions for themselves.
Thanks for being part of a wonderful village
