Ever since the end of summer, the whole country has been in a state of paralysis, induced by a crippling shortage of fuel. This situation, however, is being resolved and things will hopefully be moving forward again.
In December and January, the coldest months of the year, the photo.circle team directed some time and effort towards distributing warm blankets to communities most affected by last year’s earthquake.
February finally saw some advancement on the Rebuilding Lampati project. Community members have been discussing designs, which an engineer from the community drew up. The designs will be checked and approved by an independent engineer before submission to the Department of Archeology, which has the final say in the matter.
On 25 Feb, community representatives met with photo.circle to discuss the way forward.
