Simple Water System in Okhaldunga.

In 2013 the NR Foundation Nepal, in conjunction with Bendigo Rotary Club, was pleased to be able to supply water to a village in Okhaldunga, a remote area of Nepal. A simple, low maintenance system was installed, that enabled up to fifty households to access clean and abundant water very easily.

DSC01977This system supplies each household with enough water for their cooking, drinking, animals and gardens at a cost of less than $US40 per household. The villagers built 60,000 liters water holding tank with water piped down to each household. Building materials and expertise were supplied by the NR Foundation Nepal. We now plan with the help and generosity of the Bendigo Rotary Club of Australia to expand this project to other villages.

Compassionate Guidelines

DSC_6108

“Buddha explains in depth how to be in harmony with nature, and so from the Buddhist point of view, care for the environment is very much part of practice.”

-Tulku Losang Namgyal Rinpoche

With the compassionate guidelines of our respected Guru, Tulku Losang Namgyal Rinpoche the environmental initiative is the underpinning part of our project. Environment is very important for the existence of all the sentient beings. We can’t imagine our life without the earthy environment and its support. Not only this generation, but for other generations, the environment is something very important. But with the rapid population growth, pollution, urbanization degradation of environment is increasing day by day. If we exploit the natural environment in an extreme way, today we might see some benefits but in long run we ourselves will suffer and other coming generation too. Excessive use will lead to adverse changes in structural, climatic, economic, socio change, even our physical body. So in the today’s context it has become very important to preserve our environment. So, NR Foundation has been working tirelessly in the preservation of environment by implementing different project like PLANTATION, WATER PROJECT, and AWARENESS CAMPAIGN.

Local villagers with young, old, and children were actively participated. Villagers were very happy to have such kind of plantation program. Foundation has been doing regular checking to those plants.

“Health is the greatest gift, Contentment the greatest wealth, Faithfulness the best relationship.”] -Buddha

Health is the chief project of NR Foundation. Our major interest is in the health area and to find sustainable solutions to the problem of ongoing health care in Nepal. Its activities in this field include aiming to provide a range of medical outreach services in the most remote areas of Nepal.

The Foundation has recognized the importance of playing a compassionate and active role in improving the health outcomes of those who have little or no access to adequate health care.

As in many areas of Nepal the health services are often either inadequate or not available. In some of the most remote areas there is no health post, no doctors, health workers and hospital available. Villagers may have to travel for many hours on foot to reach a substantial health facility. Treatable diseases often go undiagnosed and untreated. This can lead to preventable death and disabilities. Children and pregnant women are most at risk in the remote areas due to a lack of facilities and education.

Ongoing Medical treatment for Sushil Tamang

We wish little Sushil Tamang all the best for his operation. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

Sushil is five years old and lives in Nepal. He is profoundly deaf and cannot speak since contracting meningitis when he was six months old.

We found Sushil whilst doing a water project in his mother’s village in Kakani in 2014. Due to their extreme poverty the young parents could not afford any treatment to Sushil. Julie priest and her brother David decided to help Sushil. They raised $11,000 US for the implant and associated costs.

We sincerely thank all those kind and generous people who has contributed to giving Sushil a bright future.Now Sushil can go to school.

If you want to help children like Sushil please feel free to contact us.
