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.
