We have a kind of stinky problem. It’s also an urgent one.
The septic systems are failing at two Tibetan Buddhist nunneries in India, Shugsep Nunnery and Dolma Ling Nunnery. This poses a health risk to the nuns and their neighbors. The nuns need your help before the situation gets even worse.
The repairs to both septic systems must be made before the arrival of monsoon rains at the end of June.
Unfortunately, both nunneries are entirely dependent on their septic systems to treat both sewage and greywater. There are no main sewer lines or sewage treatment systems nearby that they can tap into.
This is not just a smelly problem for the nuns and the surrounding community. Without urgent repairs, there is the very real danger of outbreaks of disease such as dysentery, cholera, typhoid, and hepatitis. Learn about all our Current Needs here.
