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.
