Greetings from India and Nepal! Let us introduce ourselves; we are Tenzin Nyima and Penpa Tsering, Tibet Relief Fund’s Project Liaison Officers in India and Nepal. We would like to welcome you to Tibet Relief Fund’s annual review for 2020/21. We are really excited to be guest editing this issue of Tibet Matters.
Like everyone around the world, we’ve had an extraordinary year and wanted to share our experiences of working on our projects during this time. We hope you enjoy our insights into some of the work your donations have supported this past year.
On pages 4 and 5 you can read about how your donations are enabling us to respond quickly to the second wave of Covid-19 in India and Nepal, making sure our communities have as much support as possible.
Now, more than ever, we are aware of how important it is to have access to affordable healthcare. Thanks to you we were able to fund construction of a health post in Bakhang village, Nepal, something they’ve never had before. You can read all about it on page 7.
Even though things had to change a lot because of the pandemic, we have still been carrying on all our usual work wherever possible. On pages 8 and 9, you can read about some of our work with schools and the older generation.
You can also see how buying gifts and handicrafts through our online shop, enlightenedgifts.org, helps our work and lots of other ways you can get involved too!
We hope you enjoy reading about just some of the work we have done this year; it’s thanks to your support and generosity that we have been able to achieve so much.
