Michael, Andreas, and Laurenz from Germany contributed to several projects between April and June 2018. They worked extremely hard to help us at the construction site at the EPSA home for disabled women in the Tarakeswar Municipality-Goldhunga, Puranoguheswori in Nepal.
Michael, Andreas, and Laurenz were fully dedicated to this construction project, they helped to carry clay, stone, and sediment using bamboo baskets and iron wheel puller carrier.
Very hard work, as you can see, even for these towering and strong young men! Luckily, Sara from England joined hands with our German volunteers, and together, they propelled our efforts to build a new and permanent shelter for the differently able ladies the EPSA foundation is taking care of.
Soon, the EPSA community will be relocated from the old rented place, which gets flooded during the monsoons, does not provide much privacy, and is not well accessible for people with disabilities, to this new place with an appropriate infrastructure that has been under construction for over two years now.
Sara, Michael, Andreas, and Laurenz – we thank you all kindly for your help!
