Let’s take a look at the progress on the Wongchhu Sherpa Memorial Hospital! We will do a bigger update when we return from Nepal at the end of November.
We have some great photos to share that show the progress on the construction of the Wongcchu Sherpa Memorial Hospital! Lakpa Sherpa, Director of the Himalayan Yokpu Foundation, the non-profit organization coordinating the project, recently returned from the site and sent us this update.
Pem Dorjee Sherpa and Kunga Sherpa joined Lakpa at the site. Pem was joined by Gerri Kerr and others from Education Elevated, the amazing group that has been so instrumental in the reconstruction of the Chyangba School and the girls’ hostel. We will share a story in the future on Education Elevated. They are incredible.
So here you can see the progress as the retaining wall is up and work has begun on the main ER building and the sewer and electrical are coming into place. The Musa Masala team will be visiting in November on the Wilderness Medical Society’s Wongchhu Sherpa Hospital Fundraising Trek. We will report back on the progress. It is so exciting to see the buildings coming up!
On November 6th Musa will have a preview book launch at the Mulberry Hotel in Kathmandu, you are invited to get a sneak and a opportunity to purchase an advance copy of the book printed in Nepal. All proceeds from Musa Masala: Mountain Girl of the Himalaya , will go to the Wongchhu Sherpa Memorial Hospital. Jam Jam!!
