help tibet
The 2012 Tibet Mission begins August 17, 2012. Volunteering this year are Charles Kutler, MD; Joe Lowenthal, DDS; Jin Ngan-Hong, L.AC, Liz Yamat, RN; Kirk Moulton, LAC; and Zach Harris, Medical student. Lama Tashi Topgyal will help translate. We are very fortunate to have such a diverse and talented group which now includes Dr. Weitz.

Our volunteers will offer medical and dental care, acupuncture, and bring medicines, medical and dental equipment to the people of Nangchen. We are also bringing portable solar power units to benefit nomads and householders in the area. Visit the About Us page to meet our new volunteers.

Your generous donations made our 2011 Mission a great success. Please visit our Donations page to see how you can help now, or in the future.The Medical and Solar pages have more information.

Please visit our 2010 Earthquake Mission Report. We were on the ground to help survivors of the devastating quake in April of 2010, all the while preparing to return as soon as possible.

rural poverty in eastern tibet
Average cash income for rural Tibetan families we serve is between $182 & $640 US.

For most families, cash income comes from raising crops and working outside the home.

Most villagers do not have electric power and most all cannot afford to purchase power when available. We will help improve life in rural Tibet.

The Poverty Report

lack of care takes a toll on the elderly
tibetan villlagers  need medical care
Almost all children are delivered at home, which was putting both mothers and infants at serious risk of permanent injury or death.

Our 2011 Mission Team was able to provide medical care, train villagers in simple medical and dental practices to help prevent infant deaths. We brought medicines, vaccines and solar power to the region.
