• In April 2019 funds were raised for education and food for Tilokpur Nunnery in Himachal Pradesh. Founded in 1966, Tilokpur was the first Karma Kagyu nunnery built in India.
• A large gift was made to a nunnery in Sikkim for construction of housing, classrooms, and a shrine.
• At Thrangu Nunnery in Tibet, a nun who had been diagnosed with advanced tuberculosis, a life threatening disease, was brought to a hospital in Beijing and has since made vast improvements towards regaining her health.
Now we must raise $300,000 to build a small medical clinic at Thrangu Nunnery in Tibet, and to offer medical supplies to several Himalayan nunneries in order to treat TB and other diseases endemic to these areas.
We also need to raise $70,000 for a suitable bus to transport the nuns on the mountainous roads in Yushu. They almost had a deadly accident this year in their old rickety bus with its small tires.
