Elder (food and shelter)
Providing food and shelter for indigent Tibetan elders
In 1959, when China invaded Tibet, thousands of Tibetans fled over the high Himalayan Mountains and settled into refugee camps in Nepal. Despite the help of the international community, many Tibetan elders struggle to survive. Indigenous Lenses is committed to providing food and shelter for indigent Tibetan elders through a monthly stipend program. Focus will be placed on those elders living in the refugee camp who have no family members or visible means of support. We are currently supporting two households.
