A Reservoir and Holding Tanks Are Being Built

Building the Road
Building the Road

Since our last report, the Tibet Water Project has made huge progress. In order to build a reservoir at the top of the pipeline and holding tanks closer to the village, a road first had to be built up the mountain. For this large earth moving equipment had to be brought in (see picture). Once the road was completed, the necessary materials for the reservoir and holding tanks could be brought in and that phase of the project could be started. In the
accompanying picture you can see ceramic tiles being applied to one of the concrete tanks. The project continues to benefit from the enthusiasm of the villagers and residents of the surrounding area, who volunteer their time and energy every day assisting the construction crew with everything from digging to hauling to cleanup. Everyone in the village continues to be amazed that people whom they have never met from all around the world are so generous and willing to help them improve their lives.

We are making progress and hope that our next report will tell you that the water is flowing to the village and that the villagers’ daily trek up the mountain for fresh water has finally ended.
