I was invited to go to Dharmasala with the opportunity to both refine my skills in Oriental Medicine and provide health care for Tibetan Women in Children in Exile this November 2011.
The Women and Children in Exhile are cheerful people that have been through a lot with little support. The clinic that I will be a part of has changed the lives for many and the school that the clinic is held cares for 200 children http://www.tibetkids.com/index.htm. The fathers often have to leave their family to look for outside oppurtunities to care for their children, or we not able to make the long journey out of Tibet.
I am touched by people here in the US that want to help. This is my vehicle for us come together to create a warm and generous contribution to assit in the healing for these beautiful people that are starting a new. They are organized and self reliant. They are not begging or asking for help but are grateful that people here are interested in their well being and are excited to see what happens with this project.
