Health Post Update
[Project Health Post]
We are back with more information about our trip to Nepal!
On June 11th our project members headed towards the site of the Health Post we have been working on for about a year now in Narayanthan, Sindhupalchok. Due to road conditions in the monsoons, it took us a long ride, but ultimately, we were greeted warmly by the villagers and witnessed Nepal’s great hospitality.
The Health Post is a three-room building which will be used by the medical staff for the treatment of 1000 people in and around the village. Hearing from the contact person in charge of the Health Post, Mingmar Sherpa, there are plans for it to be expanded, including a road directly leading to the building for the ambulance.The building is expected to be open for use in less than three months since documentation for the ownership of the land has yet to be transferred.
We interviewed both people in-charge and victims in the village to gather more information about the situation of the people during and after the earthquake and also to speculate the impact of our Health Post.
More information about the rest of the trip will soon be posted. Please stay tuned!
Trip to Nepal
ISAK's ProjectNEPAL has been in Nepal for the past two weeks for our official Nepal trip. We are sorry for not having been able to update our donors and supporters about the trip, but now that we are done with it, we have so much to tell you about!
We interviewed a representative from the Let's Build School Campaign and visited the Central School for the Deaf. We visited our Health Post and came up with an idea to solve the garbage collection problem in that village. We then hiked four hours up to our Nepali member's (Karma's) house in the village. Our trip ended with shopping for goods that we will sell at ISAK, events and online (so be prepared to buy more from us!), the proceeds of which will be entirely used for project purposes only.
In the next few days, we will be posting updates with more information on the trip and our specific projects in Nepal. So stay tuned for more on ISAK's ProjectNEPAL's Nepal Trip 2016!

As we mentioned in a post in the past, our health post has completed construction, and we were waiting for it to be painted. Recently, we received a picture from our contact person of the completed building. Thank you to all our supporters and donors for having made this possible. We will be sure to post pictures when it begins operation.
Have a look, and please post and questions you have in the comments below!
