Annual Report 2014
March 24, 2015
Dear KHCP friends,
2014 was a very exciting year.
- Two days before his death in Renchen Ulm, we had the great fortune to receive important advice from Künzig Shamar Rinpoche for the KHCP. We were able to put in place a medical camp for his cremation in Kathmandu in June and offer help for thousands of people who paid their last respects to him. The cooperation with the University Hospital Dhulikhel in Nepal was enormously helpful.
Over the year there were numerous medical and dental camps at our institutes, monasteries and schools in the Himalayas. We gave you detailed reports throughout the year via Facebook and our website.
- Conforming with the wishes of Karmapa and Shamarpa, many "Western" friends were able to develop their social activity and help at KHCP's Mönlam medical camp last December. Almost 50 helpers from many nations treated more than 3000 people in just one week.
If you want to share in this unique experience in the future, just contact us at
- The idea for our Rumtek hospital is still alive, through financial support for our monastic places and for the laymen community there, until all the necessary conditions have come together.
IMPORTANT: The situation in Rumtek is simply awful - in every regard. We need more donations to give our support safely.
Ulrike remains in charge of the association funds. She also hands out the donation receipts (necessary only for German donations from 200 Euros/year).
In 2014 KHCP was proud to collect about 53.000 Euros. Our deepest appreciation and heartfelt thanks to every supporter! You make it possible that help reaches so many people.
Have a look at the current amount of collected donations in the chart on the welcome page of our website. We need to collect a minimum of 60,000 Euros a year to be able to provide the most rudimentary treatments.
Find out more about all of last year's important activities here on our website.
Or connect with KHCP on Facebook and read many smaller blogs there.
Or contact Betzy at our KHCP online office. You can talk to her in German, English and Spanish.
Our thanks go out to all the institutes in the East and their joyful and energetic helpers who support our activities.
Thanks to all the friends everywhere! COME TOGETHER
Pia and Peter Cerveny and the team of Karmapa's Healthcare Project e.V.
