About the course: You will learn the basics of Piwang, the traditional Tibetan music instrument.

Our seniors collected more than $450 as donation for the cyclone titli relief fund for Tibetans in Odisha.

Previously: Thanks to all our supporters, we were able to donate the much needed Dead body freezer box today to Tibetans in Odisha.

We collaborated with Oshi Shenphenn Tsokchung to purchase and pickup the freezers from Vishakapatnam.

The expenditure of the box was as following:- Dead body freezer box: Rs.68,000, Transport charges for a big van: Rs 9,000, Taxi vehicle charge Rs 5,500, Lamination Rs. 4,200. Total expenditure Rs. 86,700 (USD $1184).

It will be very useful for all the 5 camps of Phuntsokling Settlement. On behalf of all the people of Odisha we would like to extend our prayers and wishes to you and your families. 🙏
