Education and Health Care in Rigul

We have committed ourselves to really try and support Rigul health clinic and school year in and year out. We need all the help that we can get to help in Rigul. Life is hard and conditions are very challenging. This year we sent more money to Rigul than came into the Trust. We are dipping into our reserves, which is fine, but we try to keep some in reserve to cover emergencies and the constant high rise in costs of food and raw materials in China. We need to keep some funds in reserve to maintain sustainability for lean years too.


For the year May 2013 we will need to send around £34,000 for the salaries of Dr Chuga, Ani Choden the nurse, the doctor’s assistant, the running costs of the clinic, and more than sixty children’s education with two free, hot meals a day at school, five teachers, three cooks, funds for building a dining room (at the moment the children have to eat in the open air brrrrr in winter!) buying and laying underground water pipes to channel the water to nearer the village from the stream and one toilet to be built – the first ever!


We have also had a request for funds to build a sickroom for the Health Clinic supported by Rigul Trust whereby patients can stay overnight as often they travel from far away and being sick it is difficult to get to the clinic and back in a day. This, we would very much like to be able to help with.


SPONSOR A TIBETAN CHILD

Ringu Tulku suggests some sponsoring and so we have an appeal programme to sponsor a child/children with an education and two hot meals a day.


We have a choice of sponsoring one or more children in the following ways:






The cost for the year for 100 children at £200 each is £18,000



This would be so very helpful if we can all chip in and help sponsor these children and give them a chance that we would give our own children. Rigul is so remote and communications so difficult we wouldn’t be able to allocate a specific child with a name and a photo. But this I feel is even more worthwhile knowing how ‘cut off’ that they are from the world and in such desperate need. Many children have to walk for an hour each way to school and the winters are severe.


Be a friend of Rigul Trust and help us reach our target funding of £12,000 for 2013 for all the children in Rigul - please sponsor a Tibetan child.


We are running this appeal, set out below. Please share this with your friends, family, colleagues, forward this email, put it on blogs and please help in every way that you can. Have a fund raising activitity, a coffee morning, a bring and buy, sell something on e-bay for us, a car boot sale, collect all your coppers and small silver, and offer this to the kiddies in Rigul – they would be so very appreciative of enough hot food and some schooling, that is a real wanted gift.


Please help the kiddies in Tibet. - HELP BY SPONSORING A TIBETAN CHILD
