Last time we reported on the fact that our 5 year plan with the government had been approved and despite the monsoon rains we have made finally progress to identify the items to equip the new innovative Renewable Energy Service Center. Soon we hope to purchase these machines and hand tools, and hope to transport all up to Simikot from Nepalgunj where it will be handed over to our local partner LIDS to start electrical and mechanical works.
In addition we managed despite the many rains to send a local technician up to Yari village to install a solar fridge, which will be driven by solar panels, for the Yari Birthing Center and Health Post. Yari is a remote village nearly 5-6 days walk from Simikot, so to have electricity available that can be used to provide better healthcare is a much needed asset that will benefit the many villagers.
Obviously there may be a future need for maintenance and repair of such equipment, which shows the need of the Service Center and trained staff to keep providing such valuable services.
This remote area is never likely to be linked up to national grid and thus much will depend on RE sources and its maintenance to support the development of local communities.
We want to thank you for all your support and encouragement and I hope you will continue to help in days to come. Tell your friends about us and encourage them to support these very remote areas that can surely help any need they can get.
