WireBridge refitting under way
by David Sowerwine
Our partner in Nepal, Village Solutions, sent their construction supervisors to the field this past weekend to upgrade four WireBridges. As with any vehicle, occasional maintenance is necessary. They will replace the trolleys, install additional safety equipment and new pulling ropes.
These snow-fed rivers will run year-round, at least until the glaciers have melted! Now, in the monsoon, they are enormous, and an impassable barrier. Their, and our thanks, for the assistance of the many generous donors who invested in these 'transport solutions' in that far corner of the Earth.
Now we are organizing a campaign to raise $100,000 to complete the retrofitting and long term maintenance for the remaining 29 WireBridges!
