Gift of a Truck

Jhamtse Gatsal Community members gather to see the new donated truck.

We have just learned that an anonymous donor in Switzerland has contributed $33,000 to Jhamtse Gatsal. This is just the amount needed to purchase a large cargo truck that has been needed for some time. Jhamtse Gatsal is very remote, and often bulk foods, consumable goods, supplies and building materials are unavailable or of poor quality. The local cost is from two to five times as much as good quality items purchased in the plains, about an 18 hour drive away, across a Himalayan pass that is nearly 14,000 feet high. By having their own truck, Jhamtse Gatsal can assure the quality of what is purchased, and obtain what is needed when it is needed. The entire community is looking forward to the arrival of the new truck.
