Virtual Gift: Fighting Fit - Care for elders
Now 90 years old, Lobsang is a widower with no children. In 1959, Lobsang gave up his life as a monk in Chamdo, Tibet to help protect the Dalai Lama as he fled Tibet to India. For years Lobsang lived in the mountains of Nepal fighting for Tibet's freedom. He has been shot, half-starved arrested and put in prison.
Of his time he says, "I am very pleased His Holiness is safely received in India. We feel, despite all our other problems, because he is safe it makes it worthwhile".
Lobsang now lives in a settlement near Pokhara. Your gift of medicine and first aid (antibiotics, crutches, bandages etc.) will help Tibetans, like him, to not worry that they cannot afford medical help if they become ill or have an accident.
"Happiness is the highest form of health" – The Dalai Lama
