Rebuilding Jasabi Facilities
In September 2022, a flash flood devastated Jasabi village of Kurtoe in Lhuntse. The disaster buried two houses and resulted in the loss of five lives. It damaged agricultural land, fruit plants, irrigation systems, and power supply amenities. As agriculture is the main source of livelihood for the people in Jasabi, farming households were severely affected.
In response, Gross International Nature (GIN), a youth-led environmental conservation organization in Thimphu, initiated a project to restore the community's facilities.
