Water Project No. 5 : Devastated Thuldi Village Gets Drinking Water

Women would hike up the mountain for about one Kilometer several times a day to fetch enough water for the daily consumption.

Problem

Thuldi village in Cavbre District lost their water sauce after the earthquake. 40 families  who  live in the village ware walking up to one Killometer to get drinking water for themselves and their animals.  People spent most of the day hiking up the mountain and fetching water form this distance water spring.

Solution

Lay a one kilometter long pipeline form a new water spring. Build a water holding tank, Run pipes and construct 4 water taps in different part of the village for people to have easy access to water.

Project Status: Mission accomplished

We have completed the project to provide water to 40 families who live in the village of Thuldi in Cavbre district.

Having water in their village was such a special event that women put on their wedding dresses and put make up on to participate in the inauguration ceremony.  They danced to the rhythm of traditional music and accompanied me around the village. It was truly a joyful and colorful celebration to mark the end of their problems and suffering due to the lack of water in Thuldi village.

Thuldi village was badly shaken by the earthquake. 40 families in this remote village in The Himalayan Mountains were suffering badly. All the houses in Thuldi are either damaged or completely destroyed by the earthquake. Most of the families live in temporary housing. But the worst thing is that they lost their water source. Everybody was going through lot of hardships as they had to bring water from a far away spring for people as well as for animals.

Bringing in a pipeline from a distant spring, we built a holding tank and four taps in different locations. Since the community is spread out, we decided to build four taps in different locations so that everybody will have easy access to a water tap. 

When the celebration ended, darkness had fallen already and it was time for a big feast. It is hard to describe the joy I felt and joy we shared together on this special day. What an amazing experience. Gratitude and blessings to everybody who supports us. 

Celebrating the arrival of water in the village. A Joyful moment for everybody. What an amazing experience.
