Some days ago Dulal Tanka sent me new pictures of the school in Thulosirubari, 70 kilometers east of Kathmandu, which could be built with your donations for our aid project “School up!”. In the meantime the outside facilities have also been completed: The schoolyard is flattened, small beds have been planted. It has become a real jewel, “our” school.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your great support, without which the project could never have been successfully completed after the devastating earthquake in Nepal in April 2015. A big thank you also to my friends, the Austrian mountaineer Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and the German climber Ralf Dujmovits, who had the staying power needed for an action like ours. And of course also to Nepalhilfe Beilngries and their local liaison men, Sunil Shrestha and Shyam Pandit, who did an incredibly good job.
Especially now, in times of the corona lockdown, my thoughts are often with the people in Thulosirubari. My heart is there anyway. This little video (all recordings were made before the corona pandemic) is a greeting from and to Thulosirubari.
