From the projects

The measures, very quickly taken by the state, are very severe. Among others, they comprise: all borders are closed. There are neither national nor international flights any more, there is a curfew, schools are closed, shops are closed. Only food may be sold. Fortunately, the building project has been finished and thus Corona did not influence the completion. We very much hope the government will now open the health station soon, so the people can obtain treatment there.

The cornerstone for the medical centre Bhorle, Rasuwa has been laid. Contrary to what had been expected, the plot concealed large rocks, just as it was the case when the first clinic in Betang was being built. For this building also manual work is necessary. With the little means these building workers require presumably nobody in Europe would be able to manage. Once foundations have been completed, all participants go home and enjoy the holidays. On December 13th work will continue with strengthened karma.

The location of the new medical centre is difficult to access in a remote valley in the southern foothills of the Himalayas. The distance from Betang where we’ve built the first medical centre in 2018, to Bhorle is about 5 hours on foot. The primary goal of the project is improvement of the health status of the population, especially of the women and girls around Bhorle. Approximately 6,000 people live in the catchment area.
