Lama Gursam, our beloved NDF visiting teacher, and his village continue to be in “lock down” except for gathering necessities, in his Tibetan refugee community in India.
A system of volunteers has been developed there to assist in delivery of food, prescriptions, and necessities, but currently it is strained by so many needs. The villages’ only two nurses have tested positive for Covid, and are in isolation. The greatest immediate necessities in his village are for oxygen and medical protective clothing for volunteers.
All contributions are greatly appreciated, and will be distributed under Lama Gursam’s care and guidance. Your provision of donations through the Bodhicitta Foundation will help to guarantee that donations get directly to this Tibetan community at this very challenging time. The Bodhicitta Foundation is an IRS recognized 501c3 Charitable Organization, all donations are tax deductible.

Please note “Emergency Covid Help” on your donation to ensure these funds reach Lama Gursam’s village.
