Flood Relief in Himachal Pradesh- update

Project 348 CTA Flood Relief in Himachal Pradesh

In 2023 His Holiness the Dali Lama’s Central Tibetan Relief Committee sent an urgent appeal to organizations such as TRAS for flood relief help in Tibetan Settlements in Himachal Pradesh. Their primary objective was to construct retaining walls to prevent future flooding which will give the residents a sense of security and relief during seasonal heavy rainfalls.

TRAS was able to send $5,000 to help pay for the repairs and the strengthening of retaining walls. Currently $1,000 has been raised.

Annual Program Report – 2023 from IDEA

This year has been so difficult in many ways for many people all over the world. It was challenging for us accepting the changing strategies with the Ministry of Health and Population in respect to health delivery in Nepal. We will go forward with the on-going programs along with the new proposed ones to be implemented with the support of our international partners.

Thank you so much for the support you had provided and we look forward to the continued financial support. We also look forward in sharing new stories in the next year 2024.

In 2023 SBA training started in November, 2023. The training of the 15 participants is in the Lamjung Hospital in Lamjung. Those who are participating were volunteering and after their completion of the SBA training they will move back to their volunteering positions. But after completing one month internship with satisfactory performances, they will receive a temporary contract by the local authorities.

These 15 participants are totally funded by TRAS Canada.
