SIKKIM EARTHQUAKE RELIEF WORK APPEAL
We, at Rigul Trust, have offered Rinpoche help with setting up an appeal for the
earthquake in Sikkim.
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche wishes this to be called the Sikkim Earthquake Relief Work Appeal.
To donate to the Sikkim Earthquake Relief Work Appeal by Paypal allows you to use your Paypal account or your credit/debit card and from your own currency.
The remoteness of much of this underdeveloped mountainous region and road closures
from land slips has made it a very difficult task to get any help to the region and
9 villages were still completely cut off. 2 weeks after the earthquake happened.
With rescue teams facing difficulties to reach some far-
100% of all donations sent through this secure PayPal site will go
to the Sikkim Earthquake Relief Work. PayPal accepts all currencies.
An email from Rinpoche on 23rd September from Kathmandu :
Maybe this is the time to help. There are lots of destruction.
Even Rumtek Shedra's new building is badly cracked.
There was one earthquake last night and one today afternoon and destroyed at least one building in Gangtok.
Lots of schools are destroyed fully. Many monasteries are also badly damaged.
We do not get any news from tv and radio any more. Rain is still pouring. Ringu Tulku
Recent Disaster Relief by Rigul Trust:
In the last two years we have set up two emergency appeals, one for the survivors
of the Yushu earthquake 2010 and one for the Ladakh flood disaster last year where
we supported the relief work that Khenpo Rangdol, Principal of Kagyu College, Dehradun
was in charge of.
100% of all donations went to these projects. We also helped fund emergency relief work in Yushu province of Tibet and now we have an ongoing sponsorship programme for 14 little children who were orphaned as a result of Yushu earthquake. We sent money for the buying and distribution of barley.
And in Ladakh we sent money for emergency relief and the reforestation of trees.
Khenpo Rangdol went to Ladakh, oversaw the projects and distributed the money.
This is background information for you to know that all of what we do is overseen by Rinpoche, 100% of your donations gets to the targeted projects. We are extremely careful with whom we deal with and Rinpoche always has the last say.
