January 2019 Meeting

"HUMANITARIAN MISSION IN NEPAL"

Wednesday, January 2, 2019 - 7:00 pm

DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP

555 WEST 25th ST

When Molly Brazier was planning a trekking adventure to Nepal, she learned of a medical clinic in the village of Waku Hill in the Solukhumba region of Nepal that needed some medical supplies. As a nurse, Molly jumped at the opportunity to combine a trekking adventure with a humanitarian mission so, after landing in Kathmandu, she flew to Lukla and then hiked two days by herself carrying medications for the clinic in Waku Hill.

By western standards it's not much of a clinic, featuring a dirt floor and no plumbing or electricity. However, moved by the warm welcome she received and impressed with the vital role the clinic serves in providing for the health care of the 170 households in the village, Molly returned to Nepal a second time and delivered more supplies to the clinic while also taking a little time out to trek to the 16,732 foot base camp of Island Peak.

Molly will show slides of her adventure and discuss the bonds she formed with the Nepalese people at this month's meeting. The meeting is open to the public and all outdoor enthusiasts are invited to attend.

Road biking routes in southeastern Idaho ranging from 20-25 miles up to about 50 mile alternatives have been developed by Barb Brown, Judy Williams, Gay Gilbert, and others over the past 17 years for use by a weekly Tuesday morning riding group. Mapman Alan Crockett (and protégé Jeb Blakeley) have improved the early rough schematics using GPS hardware and DeLorme software.
