Karina just returned from Nepal where she visited her husband, Daniel in Yangri to see the devastation first hand and celebrate the work that has been accomplished to restore the village. Daniel and Karina are thrilled to report that the lights in Yangri Valley are back on. They have completed the rebuilding of the essential components of the small hydropower plant, and they both had the pleasure to preside over the re-commissioning ceremony. The restoration of power constitutes a huge step in the process of rebuilding in the Yangri Valley.
Himalayan Life and the workers in Yangri can now machine-produce lumber for house construction. Moreover, the boost of hope and confidence for the locals who have endured so much is immense. As one villager happily said: Now I can rebuild my house.
Rebuilding continues as equipment for the sawmill and carpentry workshop is brought in to rebuild houses, and develop the plans for the regional school, whose construction is scheduled to commence in late Spring.
Daniel says, “on behalf of the people of Yangri, I’ll say THANK-YOU to all of you for your support.”
