Gift of Hope: Help for Hepatitis
Hepatitis B is a major health problem for Tibetans, affecting one in ten of those living in India. Without treatment it can be life-threatening, causing scarring of the liver (cirrhosis) or liver cancer. It’s estimated 90% of liver cancer within the community is due to Hepatitis B. Many Tibetans can’t afford the long-term medication to keep the virus under control.
Your gift will bring peace of mind to a Tibetan suffering from chronic Hepatitis B, knowing they will have their essential medicines for six months.
This gift comes with a thank you letter, a photo and a rangzen (freedom) bracelet, enclosed in an envelope made by the Clean Upper Dharamsala project.
