        EARTHQUAKE RELIEF – YANGRI HOPE PROJECT

Temporary school in Yangri (Ripaar) opened!

Good news in the midst of enormous difficulties: RIPAAR, a cluster of some 60 houses high up on the slopes of the Yangri valley, has been largely cut off from the rest of the village by massive landslides and a raging river:

I cannot but admire the COURAGE of the locals: in the midst of the enormous difficulties they are faced with, they have constructed a temporary school in a new location for their village. One villager even donated the land. Everyone helped.
