Very sadly Tsering lost her husband last year and she has no other family. For elderly ex-soldiers and widows likeTsering, suffering from physical or mental illness is a difficult but common reality of life, and they can’t always afford thetreatment they need.
Your gift of medicine and first aid, such as crutches, bandages or a course of antibiotics, will ensure elderly Tibetans like Tsering are cared for if they become ill or have an accident.
