Summer 2014 - Nepal Program Update

In a few weeks, Dooley Intermed's President, Scott Hamilton, along with a small team of volunteers will be heading to Nepal. Upon arrival they will head to the  Eco-Farm Orphanage in the Sankhu Valley supported by Dooley Intermed for a site visit. Scott will also be meeting with officials at the Banepa Eye Hospital in the Sankhu area to begin planning for an upcoming Dooley Intermed sponsored eye and vision "Gift of Sight" project.  Next on the agenda is a trip to Pokhara, Nepal to meet with the Himalayan Eye Hospital, to plan a future eye mission, followed by a visit to the Pema Ts'al Sakya Monastic Institute to renew old friendships and secure a team of volunteer monks to serve as translators and assistants for the upcoming projects. Departing Nepal in early July, Scott will meet other team members in New Delhi, India and then our Dooley Intermed team will head onward to Leh, Ladakh "the land of high passes". Ladakh is located in northernmost India, in the Jammu and Kashmir region near the Karakoram range. Dooley Intermed has been requested to consider an outreach eye and vision project in Ladakh, as well as help provide medical care to pilgrims and refugees attending a special teaching by His Holiness The Dalai Lama in Ladakh during early July.
Dooley first started helping Tibetan refugees in 1963, at the personal request of the Dalai Lama, over 50 years ago. Your donations make these missions possible. Thanks to your support abandoned children have a home, blind and visually impaired people have their sight restored, the sick receive medical care and the hopeless have hope restored. With your help we can do even more.

With thanks....please help if you can...
