Annual Report 2021 of KHCP
Dear KHCP friends worldwide
Also in 2021 COVID-19-travel- and contact restrictions made some of our usual campaigns impossible. 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 118.650 €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 remote villages 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.
Furthermore the KHCP fund the coperations with the Khyenkong Tharjay Manjughosha Association, Street Dog Care e.V. and the White Grain Foundation.
A special thank to Dr. Regis Proust / K.T.M. Association, 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 again (COVID) and therefore the KHCP-medical camp there too.
Instead the 14.th KHCP-Monlam-Medical-Camp 2021 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 14th time.
