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 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 families are poor and have limited access to other health care facilities.

Solution

Essential oils are proven to be an effective complement to traditional Tibetan and western medical practices in the treatment of disease and infection. Essential oils and bottles are needed to re-stock supplies.

Long-Term Impact

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