Emergency Fund

The Association, in Nepal, Tibet and India, is often approached by people in desperate need of immediate assistance: some need money for basic medical care for themselves or their children (there is no free medical care in these countries) and others for urgent life-saving operations; some people because they have no work or have lost their harvest and have no other way to feed their family or pay the rent; others because they are elderly or disabled and alone, not able to work they are left abandoned to themselves.

The Emergency Fund also takes care of sustaining temporarily those children whose sponsorships have been interrupted. In this way children are not forced to leave school or to return to their initial difficult living situations.
