A MESSAGE OF URGENCY FROM KHENPO RANGDOL
Principal of Kagyu College, Dehradun, India.
(Received by Margaret Richardson of Rigul Trust.)
I hope you are doing well. I am not very happy to share this news there was flood disaster happened in Ladakh everywhere. I hope you are aware that hundreds of people lost their precious lives and belongings and hundreds of people lost their home.
My family are well, but there was huge damage at the river side. My brother and sister came from Ladakh. I had a long discussion with my brother and was shocked to see some videos from my village call Tingmosgang. Our village areas had huge damaged of fields and trees most at the river side and five houses were completely wash away
I didn’t hear till today that there was also affected at Tserkarmo monastery where we are building Great Bhudi Stupa. I was shocked to see some of those pictures. Two pools were completely destroyed where we store water for the fields. Now we don’t have any pool! Also affected for few fields and trees.
Some others pictures are at my villages call Tingmosgang there were destroyed five houses and thousands of trees and hundreds of fields. We have to bring those fields in to normal way for next season otherwise they have nothing to do. Please help! HELP! HELP! HELP!
Our project is trying collect donations for the Ladakh disaster. As you have good links with people, it would be so kind if you also could do some fundraising for this disaster. That would bring much benefit for those people.
Our society is registered in 1989 and recently we FCR status (legally we can receive donations from foreign countries). Today I got a call from a friend of mine from Ladakh and he did say that they really need lots of help from all over the world.
With lots of prayers.
