Dear friends worldwide,

So very many of us have so willingly and graciously helped Ringu Tulku’s people in Tibet over the years.

The people in Rigul send their heartfelt greetings, appreciation and gratitude for all the help and the kindness that so many of us have provided with support and funds for health, education and poverty relief in Rigul.

Over the years we have helped fund the first purpose built school, the first purpose built health clinic. And! Funded two free school meals a day, free textbooks, free boarding, salaries for teachers and cooks. With the clinic we have funded the salaries of the doctor, the nurse and the running costs of the clinic along with funding an ambulance. We’ve helped fund the first ever piped water to several taps located in the school and the clinic  etc. And- the first ever toilets with water supply too.

Sometime ago, I was told by a lama from Rigul that the whole atmosphere of the people in Rigul had changed with them developing more confidence, more interest in the children’s education and  now receiving health care.

There are so many ways that we can help and will share with everyone some of the numerous fund raising activities that have taken place in the next Rigul news posting.

Wishing us all good health and a joyful mind for the new year,

Margaret Richardson and Ringu Tulku
