Fund-Raising Announcement/Report of Kagyü monasteries in Rumtek/Sikkim/India


Our friends in Rumtek need help - despite earthquake in Nepal we have´nt forget the indian sites.
The life in Rumtek is very poor and medical support is far away.

Since 2005 the three Karma Kagyü institutes are supported by KHCP-Karmapa´s Healthcare Project.
  • Nedo Rinpoche’s monastery/school in Rumtek (1510m altitude)
  • Karmae Sanga Rumtek (Monastic School of Shamar Rinpoche)
  • Karma Chokhor Dechen Ling - Karmapa´s nunnery in Rumtek

In summer 2015 the three Kagyü-sites requested KHCP to fund-raise some money to liftup the generally miserable conditions. Please help!

Nedo Rinpoche about the KHCP-Karmapa´s Healthcare Project:

"It is really very helpful for all of our Monasteries. It is very beneficial for all the monks and nuns and our friends living in the Monasteries. We for example did Hepatitis Vacination for everybody. One monk got an eye operation. Another monk soon will get an ear operation in Gangtok Hospital. And all small problems and sicknesses can be taken care for. And 4 monks have bad eyesight, so they need a checkup every 6 month and eventually new glasses. So we are all very grateful for this very big help!
For the future we wish that the KHCP can grow and help even more effective for all Karma Kagyu family.

My personal idea for the future is: that we can also approach KHCP for big problems like expensive operations which may have to take place in Delhi Hospital. We are very much looking forward for our first medical camp together with Shamar Rinpoche’s monks and Ani Gompa and wish that it will take place every year. We are very grateful and thankful for the waterfilter which you sponsored and for all the precious help you are giving to all Karmapa’s Monasteries!"

According to the wish of H.H. 17th Karmapa the old Rumtek hospital is to be re-established. In March 2012, both his Holiness Gyalwa Karmapa and Jigme Rinpoche assigned the task of building the medical structure of the hospital to the KHCP.
The first on-site inspection took place in December 2012. This initial assessment will be followed by regular reports on the reestablishment and all its developments.
