WASH Project Bihar

Project Visit Report Bihar, India November 2015

By Philippe Birker & David Caspers

We will start this journey from the point where we are writing it from, the lovely capital of Nepal, Kathmandu. The three founders of the Love Foundation (Marius, David and Philippe) gathered here on the 8th of November 2015, and after a few days here we embarked towards our project in Bihar, India close to the Nepalese border. Due to the Nepalese fuel crisis sparked by an Indian-imposed fuel import blockade this was a bigger task than expected. Long story short we ended up in a Jeep with 7 other Nepalese and Chinese people trying to make it towards the border. Due to the current political turbulences on the Indian/Nepalese border, the main crossing in Raxaul was closed and we had to head further south to Biratnagar.
