Tibet 2011 – Monasteries

The funds collected by the Association have reached once again this year several small monasteries of central Tibet, the maintenance of which are exclusively based on donations. The monasteries are the custodians of the precious Tibetan tradition, and are a reference point and place of fundamental help for all the inhabitants of surrounding villages.
The aid received is used equally for all the monks, to cover their basic needs: food, shoes, medicines, blankets, fuel and so on.
This year, the Monastery of Nimo, a small monastery in the mountains, has started the reconstruction of rooms for the thirty-two monks, who are presently housed in small unfit spaces, totally inappropriate to their number. The Association is still collecting funds to help pay for this work.
