Update April 29, 2015
On the 28th April the Benchen water truck went to Dachinkali, Kalimati, Teku, Boudha, and Pachdara in order to aid the shortage of water there. The monks went to various places in coordination with the Buddhist Committee.Dr. Tsering along with a group of monks went to Sanku to aid the very bad conditions there.
Today on the 29th the water truck went to other places, many groups of monks were offering their help where needed and Dr. Tsering again went to Sanku. The monastery has difficulties obtaining new food-stock for the monks, which is slowly is running out. However, we can manage to offer tea to the people in the military camp nearby every morning and afternoon. There are some pictures of the monks brining a huge pot of tea to the camp which is filled in smaller pots and distributed among the people.
Namaste, Tempa and Florian-Tashi
