Dear KHCP friends worldwide
this last year was a difficult one for the wordwide community and likewise for our Kagyu family.
Nevertheless we all do our very best, as well the KHCP try to keep the activities alive.
Despite we could raised a total of about 126.372 €uro and – like in all the previous years – these funds will be or already are swiftly allocated to their purpose. We hereby thank our supporters from our very hearts.
Due to COVID-19 we have modified our campaigns and processes. Along the inflows in our monasteries and institutions we have tried to support actively the COVID-affected and poor or old people around the monasteries.
With different reliefs in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Kalimpong, Rumtek, Sharminub and diverse villages in Darjeeling and Sikkim we could serve food, masks and desinfection stuff.
Monks and nuns of the Kagyu monasteries at place organized and realized it all and we are happy and hereby thank them for their great angagements.
And also our heartfelt wish is to help suffering animals. So we could share food to the monkeys at the Stupa Swayambhu because they hunger due to missing tourists nowadays. The same with plenty of dogs at Boudhanath Stupa - they also got medical care.
Thanks to Andrea Brinkmann / Street Dog Care e.V. and Magda Jung / White Grain Foundation for their hard-working and tireless campaigns and cooperation with KHCP in Kathmandu.
The annual Kagyu Monlam in December had been canceled (COVID) and therefore the KHCP-medical camp too.
Instead the 13.th KHCP-Monlam-Medical-Camp 2020 had been successful again in Rumtek/Sikkim.
So this year the Kagyu community of Karmae Sangha Rumtek (Shamarpa´s school) hired professional doctor and nurses to provide free medical checkups and healthcare for participants in the Monlam as well as the local population.
So we are very happy to get fulfilled the continuity of the Monlam medical camp history of KHCP - Karmapa´s Healthcare Project for the 13th time.
