Lions Roar : May 2010
SHAMBHALA SUN MAY 2010 61 T o escape the tibetan autonomous Region (taR), refugees make an arduous trek across the himalayas. often their family’s savings have gone into sending them out, yet they cannot afford sufficient supplies for the journey and they arrive in Nepal malnourished, frostbitten, ill. the refugees know that if they’re caught en route by chi- nese security forces, they could be shot and killed, and if they’re caught by the Nepalese border patrol, they risk being returned to their homeland, where they could face imprisonment and torture. yet despite these haz- ards, refugees continue fleeing tibet because the situa- tion there is that dire. “tibet and the tibetan people are going through the hardest time in our history,” says Lobsang Nyandak, the representative of the dalai Lama to the americas. “but in terms of reaching out to the international communi- ty, we are confronted with a powerful china everywhere in this globe.” more than ever, this is a critical time to help tibet- ans; and there are things that we can do. this article will focus on three of the many organizations that are supporting the tibetan cause. two of them—the tibet Fund and the american himalayan Foun- dation—are dedicated to humanitarian work. the third, the international campaign for tibet, is a monitoring and advocacy group. The Dalai Lama and the people of Tibet have taught us so much about kindness and compassion. It is our time to give back. AndreA Miller looks at the work of three important organizations supporting the Tibetan people both inside Tibet and in exile.
