is a growing number of elder people in Hewa. The health
improved a lot over the years. So. people on average are
than before. Besides, social structures are changing as well.
birthrate has gone down considerably; 2-3 children per famliy
normal today. These children are no longer able to take care
aging parents. In this situation, there is need of a house
elders can meet, where somebody takes care of them and where
even live if necessary.
The construction of such old-age home is one of the projects suggested by Lhakpa Doma Sherpa. HSCC and Verein Nepal-Inzlingen are interested, but this project is currently only planned for the future when the running projects are completed.
