Apart from providing treatment at the clinic, we also take our
services to the patients who are too ill to come to the clinic.
We send our doctors and nurses to them.
We regularly carry out vaccination and immunization programs in
the settlement. We also welcome on many occasions national and
international medical teams to our clinic.
During natural disasters we set up medical relief camps.
During the TSUNAMI catastrophe in early 2005, which claimed
millions of lives and destroyed properties worth billions. Soon
after the TSUNAMI there was a fear that some epidemic may arise
in the areas affected. We sent a medical team comprising of two
doctors and five paramedics to provide medical relief and aid to
the victims under the district of Nagapattinam in the State of
Tamil Nadu , INDIA . They were given medicines, treatment,
dressing and most importantly the spirit of brotherhood in their
times of utter distress and despair.
We have also organized a free medical camp for the entire
duration of the KALACHAKRA INITIATION by His Holiness the Dalai
Lama in January 2006 at Amravati under the district of Guntur in
the state of Andhra Pradesh INDIA . Thousands of pilgrims came
from Tibet , the trans-Himalayan belt and rest of the world to
attend the initiation. Since the majority were not adapted to
the climate of the southern part of India and the duration of
the teachings were long, we felt many would face health
complications. We were happy to set up a medical post for their
benefit and welfare.
In August 2007, we set up a free medical post during the Tibetan
Peoples’ Movement held in New Delhi , the capital of India .
In the month of March 2008, we sent a medical team to provide
medical aid to the six hundred Buddhist monks who took to the
streets of Mumbai in support and solidarity with the Tibetans in
Tibet . We also sent our Ambulance for peace march from
Dharamsala to Tibet border during March 2008.
