Gesarfund

 

Ik voel me, als fondsenwerver en bestuurslid, nauw verbonden met stichting Gesarfund. Deze stichting richt zich op het verlichten van armoede, het stimuleren van onderwijs en het bevorderen van gezondheidszorg in de Tibetaanse Chenduo regio in de Yushu prefectuur en in de regio van Golok.

 

Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche:

‘‘For many years, the Tibetan community in the Surmang area has been helped and supported by members of Shambhala and others living in Europe. These activities have now been grouped into the Gesar Fund, registered in the Netherlands. The Fund aspires to grow into a strong organization that can extend its activities beyond Surmang to include support for people in the regions of Kham and Golok. I very much welcome this development and I would like to encourage people of good heart to contribute generously to these projects that will be so meaningful to the Tibetans living there.’’
