Dutch Aid to Tibetans donates $9000 to Computerizing the hospital.

Dutch Aid to Tibetans was founded in 1963. The main aim of the Foundation is to "Help the Tibetans to remain Tibetan", in other words, to maintain the unique Tibetan culture. The Foundation contributes to this by:

Providing help to refugee Tibetan children, who are looked after in children's villages in India.
Providing support to projects that aim at assisting children and adults to build towards their own future.
Raising awareness of the situation of Tibetans, through films such as "Tashi Delek, Zompa!" and the Tibetan Learning Chest for use in Dutch primary schools.

The Foundation works only with volunteers and as a result of this it is able to guarantee that virtually all of the financial donations are directly used to support the Tibetan children. Of course the work of the Foundation does incur costs. However these are usually never more than between 2% and 4% of any donation.

Dear Friends,

Voluntary Health Association of India (VHAI) has recently instituted the Anadi-Kamal Award, to be given every two years to couple/family working in most challenging circumstances. This Award has been instituted in the Honor of late Mr. Anad Nath Mukherjee and late Mrs. Kamal Mukherjee, who were born in families of illustrious Sanskrit Scholars and Freedom Fighters of West Bengal. Inspired from this tradition, they devoted their whole life to numerous social causes.

In 2005 Anadi-Kamal award was given to Tyagi Family for their outstanding family Contribution to Social Work. Now this year, VHAI Executive Board in its meeting held on July 18, 2007, has nominated Tibetan Delek Hospital for the same. The Award committee decided on the name of Tibetan Delek Hospital for this Award, keeping in view our many years of humanitarian work. Therefore, on behalf of our hospital, I am attending the Award ceremony on Tuesday, the 11Th, September 2007 at Hotel Jaipur Palace to receive the Award.

Yours Sincerely,

Dawa Phunkyi
