Bodhisattva Alert: Medical Supplies Needed

Posted on

Did you know that one in ten children die at birth in Tibet, and that children in that country suffer one of the highest rates of drug-resistant tuberculosis?

When Roshi Joan Halifax traveled to Tibet in 2006, she and medical professionals on the trek set up a Nomads Clinic to offer basic health care to the men, women, and children along their route. You can see the video here:

Next year, the Nomads Clinic will be in operation again. You can help by donating much needed medical supplies to the clinic. There’s a letter here with complete details.

About Maia

I've been practicing and studying the Buddha way since 1994, and exploring the question "What is engaged Buddhism?" since the late 90s. As former executive director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and editor of its journal, Turning Wheel, I had the honor of meeting and working with many practitioners of engaged dharma, including Roshi Joan Halifax, Joanna Macy, Alan Senauke, and Robert Aitken Roshi. I write about socially engaged Buddhism on my blog, "The Jizo Chronicles," as well as on the theme of personal and collective freedom on my website, "The Liberated Life Project." Through my Five Directions Consulting, I offer support to individuals and organizations who aspire to integrate awareness into their work.
