An urgent call for help to save Tsewang Topgyal's life

To our dearest friends and Sangha,


Lama Tendar has received an urgent request from Kham, Eastern Tibet, to help save his nephew, Tsewang Topgyal's life. Tsewang Topgyal has a serious liver infection which requires an urgent medical operation in Chengdu public hospital. We are trying to raise funds to pay for the operation which alone costs around CY 80,000 (approximately $A15,350), not including all the travel expenses on top of this.


Tsewang Topgyal is from Kham and has a wife and five young children. Unlike in Australia, healthcare is not so readily available for Tibetans in Tibet.  Tsewang Topgyal has had to make the arduous journey from Chamdo to Chengdu to receive medical treatment.  We are so lucky here in Australia where healthcare is readily available to all.


Tsewang Topgyal has had no one to turn to other than his uncle in Australia.  Many Tibetans in Tibet rely heavily on Lama Tendar for his support and in this particular case, Tsewang Topgyal is appealing to Lama Tendar for his compassion and help in this difficult time.


Lama Tendar requests your help to finance his nephew's medical treatment. It doesn't matter how much you give, but with your assistance and good heart, you could be saving a precious human life.


Lama Tendar and Rinpoche continue to offer prayers at our centre for the well being of all sentient beings. If you would like to help, please contact (03) 97660768 or
