Fuel Distribution Project
Oct 2020:Sofia Hedeby Srensenand her friends, Denmark, are so compassionate that they voluntarily raised INR 12785 for needy Tibetans in Ladakh, India, during Covid19 outbreak.
The money proved to be very helpful for 10 most needy and deserving Tibetans to make their homes warm during upcoming winter. The winter of Ladakh is minus 20 degree celcius cold. And in this year they were not able to earn, due to Covid lockdown, a little money they usually earn. So they are doomed to face the rath of cold and harsh winter.
However, with this help from Danish friends, their plight is minimise to some extend.
Adjacent picture shows an old woman receiving 1000 Kg of mixed of dried Yak Dunk and dried sheep pellets, worth of INR1200 , which is used to make fire in traditional furnace in her homes. This would keep her home warm for approximately 20 days. That is a great help and relief for her. We distributed fuel for 10 such needy families. On their behalf, Tibet Hope Center wholeheartedly pays thanks to Sofia and friends for this kindness.
Winter in Ladakh is five months long and it stretches from November to March. During the winter, life is difficult for all; and particularly for old and poor people. So, any help from anybody in whatsoever form will be accepted gratefully. Please, Click here for detail report.
February 2020: The winter of Ladakh (India) is extremely cold. Its temperature falls down to (-20 to -40) Degree Celsius.
In that situation, old and poor people suffer most because they can’t effort fuel for their home heating system to warm up their homes. They neither have the ability to collect fuel from the high up mountains nor have the money to buy it. So the only option left for them is to bear it. Then they not only suffer but their health deteriorates badly. So they will suffer more and die sooner.
Thanks to Mr. Nevin Rajasakran from South Africa with whose financial help; Tibet Hope Center is able to distribute 1300 Kg of wood logs to following needy old people in Ladakh Tibetan Settlement.
