CAN’s work at Walung has covered all areas of our work from health, education, community development and heritage. The Health Post has been generously supported by The Frank Davies Family Trust for many years and they have recently increased their financial commitment to this valuable work. The local community got their chance to thank their funders when Cate and Ben Davies visited for the first time in autumn 2011.
CAN built the Health Post, the Gompa and installed pipes (three kilometres) for clean water.
CAN financed and oversaw the building of the large Gompa and its on-going maintenance.
CAN runs adult education classes in the Gompa and supports the Mother’s Group.
CAN funds two nurses, a helper, provides the medicines, instruments/equipment and first aid training.
CAN supported the community to develop a telephone service based in the Health Post which is now generating a steady income to help sustain CAN village infrastructure.
