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.
Our projects include medical missions, solar power projects, meeting the educational needs of village children and assistance to the elderly. You can help.
The Raktrul Foundation teams have successfully completed many missions to Tibet, and on July 28, 2014, a group of twelve health care workers from New York and Chicago will be leaving for Tibet to provide medical care to the poor and underserved Tibetans living in the Nangchen region in eastern Tibet, high in the Himalayas. There is minimal electricity and no running water in the region we will serve this year.
All volunteers pay their own expenses. Your donations go directly to help the people in this remote area of Tibet. This year the Foundation needs funds for medicines and other supplies. The About Us and Mission pages will provide more information on these efforts. We thank you for your generous support. Visit our Donations Page to see how to help.
