Tansen Mission Hospital - Over the years the hospital operations have been hampered because of shortage of water. Because of that a rainwater harvesting system has been installed through which rain is collected from the hospital roofs and the roofs of the compound houses. The total capacity of this system is 1188 m3. However because of the decline of water received from Tansen municipality it has become more and more difficult to run the hospital during the dry season. By building an additional water tank of 1500 m3 this problem can be solved. There is sufficient rain available to fill this new tank.
Rain harvesting at the hospital has been done since about 40 years. During this time, water deliverance from the municipality decreased slowly while the demand of the hospital continued to grow. When new buildings were constructed, part of the plan was always to harvest rain from that particular building and to add to the storage capacity by constructing a new tank.
Of the needed USD 290.000 USD 165.000 has been pledged. The house architect “Himalayan consulting architects and engineers Pvt Ltd” from Kathmandu, has been asked to make a detailed design of the tank up to international standards.
