Donation Options

Essential Oils to Improve Tibetans' Health



Provide seed funding for an herb garden and essential oils that are used topically to treat disease and infection within a refugee clinic in India for 380 families and over 600 Tibetan children.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Bon are a minority Tibetan ethnic group that fled to India when the Chinese invaded Tibet in 1959. They established a community in Dolanji, India on donated land. Today, 80 Bon families, 200-300 Indian families, and several hundred orphaned children live in Dolanji, India and rely on the clinic at the Yung Drung Bon Monastic Center for free health care. Survival is difficult in this remote area and these poor families have limited access to other health care facilities.

How will this project solve this problem?

Essential oils have proven to be an effective complement to traditional Tibetan and western medical practices to successfully treat disease. Essential oils and bottles are needed to re-stock supplies. Seed funding is needed for an herb garden.

Potential Long Term Impact

The oils will be used to treat diseases of people in Dolanji. Clinic staff hopes to begin growing herbs and explore making these oils on site and selling them for income to support the clinic and this Tibetan community in exile.
