Nepal is affected to an above average degree by the effects of global warming. The capital city of Kathmandu, which has no main water supply, is frequently affected by water shortages.  The water supply must be solved on an individual basis. 

Previously the water tanks in the orphanage were replenished on a weekly basis.  The water prices in Nepal are subject to great fluctuations.  Against this background, a few years ago it was decided to guarantee the water supply of the home via the groundwater. 

This development, financed by the Anne-Frank-Fonds in Basel and the Eugen and Elisabeth Schellenberg Foundation in Frauenfeld (both in Switzerland), also makes it possible, in times of water shortage, to deliver water to the poor people from the local neighborhood.
