World Expeditions Community Project 2008



October 2008,

Kushudebu Public Health Mission, Nepal, (KPHMN) has recently upgraded the medical center by installing a solar panel, leveling and paving the access, and putting a new awning and windows on the buildings. Most of the materials were made locally and some came from Kathmandu.

This work was successfully done by people who came to Nepal through World Expeditions Community Project Travel and locals. There were two groups of travelers who came to the Beni VDC of Solukhumbu to work on these projects. Travelers came from Australia, New Zealand, England and America.

From all the hard work, suggestion and contributions received from these travelers, KPHMN has been encouraged to continue working on this community project in the remote area of Nepal.

All of the local people of Solukhumbu Beni VDC, the management committee and staff at KPHMN would like to thank them once again for their great contributions. We really appreciate their efforts and kindness and hope to benefit from their support in the future.Their work has made many improvements to the centre.

Group 1 lead by Ang Tshering Sherpa, President of KPHMN flew to Phaplu from Kathmandu on 1st Oct 2008. Due to bad weather the flight was delayed, instead of departing at 9am it left after 2 pm.They then spent the night in Phaplu. They were supposed to travel to Junbesi on this first day. KPHMN is at Junbesi. Unfortunately this meant Group 1’s time at KPHMN was one day shorter than planned.They arrived at the medical center on 2nd Oct 2008. Group 1 was warmly welcomed at Junbesi by the local management committee, and medical staff.

Group 1 :started the work at medical centre early on October 2nd
and upon arrival at the medical centre the group was greeted by the
Management Committee and medical centre staff. The group commenced works:
painting; installing paving, an awning and the solar panel; and
earthworks. By the end of these projects everyone was ecstatic and the
local villagers put on a fabulous show, this time it was a
farewell dance and dinner! A highlight to this ‘thank you’ event was
the attendance of Nawang Gimba Lama who made the journey from Phunmoche
Monastery (a 45 min. walk) to specifically express his appreciation and
bid farewell to this group.

After such a memorable Farewell Dinner, Group 1 walked and camped to Nunthala, Bupsa, Surke and then Thado Koshi where they met and lunched with Group 2.The walks were long and tiring but all were happy to see the natural beauty of the Solukhumbu, The beauty of the area helped all to forget their tiredness.At Thado koshi, Group 1 and Group 2 exchanged leaders with Ang Tshering Sherpa returning to KPHMN with Group 2.

Group 2, after much walking and camping, was then warmly welcomed at medical center with traditional sherpa wel-come songs and a sherpa drink called chang(barley beer)

Once at the medical centre group 2 worked on a number of
similar projects and were too greeted and fare welled in the same fashion
as the first group. After the completion of the project works and the
farewells the trekking group made the journey down to Phaplu were they
organized their own farewell celebration with the trekking crew and
personnel; the celebrations lasted well into the late evening.

Due to the lack of time, all of the work was not finished on time with the volunteer travelers but it has now been completed by local carpenters.
