Ongdi Sherpa, a native of Nepal came to the Rotary Club a few months ago, asking for some help in getting funds to help relief work in his home village in Nepal. He described it as remote, a 2 day drive from the capital Kathmandu, then a 3 day walk "after the road ran out". Like so many remote villages, they didn't benefit so much from International aid, but they were fairly self sufficient in food and water. Where they did need assistance was in funds for replacing and repairing buildings and roofs. Now we can see what the money we donated, along with the Rotary Club of Hawick, was used to do. Thank you and well done Ongdi.
