Liuzhu Village Wu Zhi Qiao

Yunnan_Liuzhu

Site Location – Liuzhu Village, Baga Township, Yanshan County, Wenshan Prefecture, Yunnan Province

Site Background – The Baga River divides the village into two parts. Villagers currently rely on a damaged bridge for access to farmland, grazing areas and markets. Cracking in the bridge deck and distorted structure have been the concerns of the villagers, who risk their lives crossing the river every day. During the rainy season, the water level rises above the bridge deck, cutting off the locals’ access. There have been reports of five schoolkids being swept away by floods.
Our WZQ university teams are planning to construct a new, safe bridge and carry out a series of community improvement programmes in the village, including installing grab bars or handrails for elderly, doing household repairs, organizing an electrical safety workshop and a public health education workshop, etc.

Villagers Benefited – 1791 (including approximately 100 schoolkids)

Sponsor – Home Affairs Bureau of the HKSAR

WZQ Project Team – The Chinese University of Hong Kong, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Tongji University, Kunming University of Science and Technology
