New construction of the health station in Gope
From 16.11 - 03.12.2021 we were able to travel to Nepal in spite of Corona and the associated conditions and tests. The most important thing on our trip was to visit the existing projects and discuss with the local people what is going well and where there are still difficulties. To everyone who has supported us over the past 24 years, we say “thank you”. We say “thank you” to a great team in Nepal, to all the people doing good work on the construction sites and in the facilities. We wish them and their families a good time and a blessed new year 2022.

Now more than ever!

Construction of a third health station in Gope, Solu Khumbu
Today we turn to you again with the request to support another project. The proposed third health post, Gope, is located two days’ jeep ride from Kathmandu in the Solo Khumbu district south of Mount Everest. This area is extremely remote and can be reached by motorized transport only outside the rainy season. Another goal of the very active women’s group of Gope is to establish a service of home visits for the elderly and the disabled.

Ram Kumar Tamang, NHEFoN, informed us on 08/01/2021 that the Corona situation has improved. Through your help, in Kathmandu as well as in the health stations in Betang and Bhorle, suffering could be reduced, infections could be prevented and severe courses of illness could be alleviated. Despite the difficult time, we have initiated a new project together with Ram. We will build another health station together with the population in Gope in the Solo Khumbu, 80 km beeline south of the Everest region.

The situation is getting more and more out of control, mainly because the government is taking chaotic decisions. As of May 27th, 2021, all grocery stores were to be closed for two weeks. Thanks to your very generous donations, together with NHEFoN/Ram Kumar Tamang, we can do more than we had thought. In the first step we were able to provide our families with staple foods for three months in the last days. In the second step we can, on demand from Betang-Rasuwa, initiate a far-reaching project: We are promptly setting up a Corona relief centre at the Betang Health Centre.

The situation in Nepal has become drastically worse. The reasons for this are manifold and, as so often, man-made. We are in constant contact with Ram and yesterday, based on his mail, we decided to provide our families with the most necessary food for the next three months. Our families are all dependent on their daily wages. Since there will be no work for them for the foreseeable future, there will be no money to provide the most minimal supplies.

Despite a very difficult Corona school year 2020-2021, Nepal has managed to hold the annual final exams. Lack of technical tools such as laptops, wifi and smartphones made it difficult for children and students to work through the required content. However, thanks to your donations, we were able to support the families in feeding the children and youths.

Greetings from Kathmandu from our partners Maya and Ram from NHEFoN. Ram has survived the severe corona disease very well. However, he still needs time to get back to full health. Preliminary planning for 2021 has been concluded. Gecotec e.V. would like to thank you very much for the support we have received from you during this last, exceptional year. We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year 2021!

Ram has asked me to inform you that his mother passed away the day before yesterday. She was cremated this morning in Kathmandu with all honours, with all the necessary rituals. Ram’s mother was a very warm and tolerant woman with great attachment to her culture and religion, but also very curious about everything concerning modern ways of life. We wish her a blessed journey and will miss her very much.

Ram is getting better every day. He was allowed to go home three days ago. Ram and Maya thank you very much for all the good wishes. Ram’s mom was a little better yesterday, but she still is in ICU. The last months have made us even more aware how much it makes sense to build another infirmary together with Ram’s association NEFoN as soon as COVID permits it.

Maya, Ram and Ram’s mother have been infected with COVID-19. The course of the disease was relatively harmless for Maya. Ram and his mother are seriously ill and are both still in the hospital. The good news is that Ram is getting better day by day. His mother’s crisis will certainly last for a long time due to her age and we hope for a full recovery.

Another lockdown all over Nepal! Things are developing as had been feared. The government acts consequently with a strict lockdown, but of course the general conditions in the country are more than difficult.
