Doctor O Yul Tsering demonstrates his grinding machine, used to prepare traditional medicines
During our annual trip to Rima in August of 2018 we provided funding for salaries for the clinic staff and to purchase another year’s worth of clean Birthing Kits. We also worked with the clinic staff to develop a business plan, as they have been wanting to create a self-supporting medicine making business for several years. We were able to make significant progress this year, due to a small grant awarded by the Rowell Fund. This is helping to fulfill a promise we made in 2004 at the beginning of our Safe Childbirth project to His Holiness the Seventeen Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje, who asked us to incorporate traditional medicines as we built and staffed a new clinic in this area.
Please help us continue our work providing health care and education in this rural Tibetan community, particularly to make childbirth safer for mothers and infants. Make a one-time or recurring donation today.
