In a place where it's a struggle to survive TNT and SITARA are working with the government to provide a Health and Birthing Centre.
Snow and ice during winter months and landslides at the time of monsoons make access tracks/roads impassable for up to eight months a year in Preeti. Life is hard - even in the better months villagers have to trek for miles to reach a health post.
In March 2019 Subash and Bijen, TNT directors in Nepal, set off with two members of SITARA NGO to discover the extent of the problem. They found that 30,000 people live in this area and heard how lives are at risk everyday because of lack of medical facility.
In July 2019 TNT and SITARA returned to Preeti with an engineer to make a thorough assessment of land villagers have provided. Here TNT will provide 50% of funds needed to build a Health and Birthing Centre. It will be built according to the Governments earthquake plans and regulations and in collaboration with the local government officers.
This will be a huge undertaking for TNT, but the need is also huge and we are taking up the challenge!
Please help us succeed!
