Stupa Restoration Project
CAN has recently begun a stupa restoration project in Langtang to help conserve these important spiritual and cultural buildings in the valley.
In 2011 a new community fundraising project started in the Langtang.
The local ladies are knitting fleece lined wool hats which CAN (UK) is selling at Doug Scott’s lectures in the UK. These hand crafted garments will hopefully be a great seller and certainly proved popular at the Adventure Travel Show in London in 2013.
CAN / Surgery in Nepal Health Camp 2010
The remote Langtang area has very sparse health provision and is two days walk to the nearest road and transport to better facilities. To assist in this situation CAN, working with Surgery in Nepal (a partner UK charity), ran a health camp at Langtang on 9 – 10 April 2010 based at Langtang Primary School.
The medical team were able to offer ophthalmic, gynaecological, minor surgery, health education, dental and GP services to villagers from Sindum, Mundu, Langtang and Gumba. In total 325 patients were seen, which included 149 eye and 51 gynaecological referrals.
CAN built the secondary school in Langtang village and Lower Primary in nearby Mundu village. It also provided funds for repositioning the hydro-electric station.
CAN is hoping to send in teacher support and help improve the health and general well-being of this impoverished area.Go Back
