Donate to Tsum
In 2003, Lama Zopa Rinpoche was requested by Drukpa Rinpoche, a Bhutanese Lama, to take care of his remote monastery and nunnery in the Tsum valley, located in the northern border area of Nepal close to Tibet. Now there are 80 nuns and 25 monks living there throughout the year.
The Tsum Sangha project is supporting these monks and nuns for food, medicine and education, as well as assisting in repairing the damage of the avalanche and the earthquake. You can make an offering to support the sangha living in Tsum for food, medicines and education needs.
The Tsum Village project is assisting the villagers in the tsum valley, where 50% of houses have been destroyed during the earthquake, in rebuilding their homes after the earthquake. The Tsum Village project will finance the cost of the roofs of the new houses. Emphasis is placed on rebuilding in the traditional style, fitting into the historic and cultural context of the area. In this way the area will keep its beauty and with it, its appeal for trekkers, bringing income to the villages.
