bardor tulku rinpoche founder The Venerable Bardor Tulku Rinpoche established The Raktrul Foundation as a 501-c-3 non-profit organization in 2000 in Red Hook, New York, USA.

This all volunteer charity is dedicated to improving the lives of Tibetan people and the people of the Himalayas. Our projects include medical missions, solar power projects, outreaching to meet the needs of village children and assistance to the elderly. You can help.

The Raktrul Foundation teams have successfully completed missions to Tibet since 2009, and on August 7, 2015, yet another group of health care workers left for Tibet to provide medical care to the poor and underserved people living in the Nangchen region in eastern Tibet, high in the Himalayas. There is minimal electricity and no running water in the region we served this year.

All volunteers pay their own expenses. Your donations go directly to help the people in this remote area of Tibet as well as our new medical clinic in Sikkim. This October the Foundation needs funds to establish our new clinic in Sikkim. We have a new buidling, and want to get our clinic up and running.

Our medical focus is to help people suffering from a vast array of ailments. Our emphasis is on chronic medical conditions.

The Raktrul Foundation (501c3), has overseen and funded 6 missions to Tibet to provide health care, solar power and to meet basic needs.

We have now been offered a three story clinic from Gharwang Rinpoche, the head of Zurmang monastery; about 15 miles from the capital, Gangtok.
