I have been the project manager for the Tibetan Children's Education Foundation (www.tibetchild.org) since 2006. Every year I take a service group to the serice sites in India served by the foundation. We do hands on work ,sharing our skills. our friendships and return richer by far for the experience. In 2013 our service trip leaves in March. We have been asked to visit a new site, a refugee camp for Tibetans on the Tibet - Burma border in SE India. It came up sudenly and we have not raised funds for this. We have the funds for the planned services this year which include an eye camp for 600 people in a remote poor village. The group wpould like to go to this refugee camp and provide BASIC MEDICAL SUPPLIES and do an assesment to provide for future services.. There are currently 2 medical professionals on the trip who can provide basic health care assesments.
There is TB and disease from unclean water. There are no other health care organizations in the area. I need approx $4,000 to purchase medicines, set up a basic clinic , transportation for a Tibetan doctor to accompany the team,training local person to administer BASIC HEALTH CARE and FIRST AID. There will be referrals and follow up for those in need of more complex care which involves the transportation to and from a local hospital which could take several hours/days, due to the remotness of the region. After the visit, a report to the Tibetan Childrens Education Foundation will be completed and a determination of needed services and what services can be provided will be discussed by the board and TCEF will include these in their service programs.
