Emergency fund

undefinedIn 2004 we created an emergency fund to occasionally help disadvantaged Tibetans or Nepalese in Kathmandu, including children and adults.

This small amount is directly managed by Lhakpa, our local representative. He lives in a working-class neighbourhood of Kathmandu and locals often appeal to him for help to buy medication, food, hospital costs, and adequate care in case of accident or disease.

Lhakpa keeps a detailed account book where every Rupee is reported with Swiss meticulousness!
