MISSION TO INDIA - APRIL 2013
A heavy programme... all targets achieved!
JangsaDechen Chöling At this site the AMTM Team discovered the new building, which houses a new kitchen and Dining Room, financed by AMTM donors, as well as the Foundation of Talents & Partage and the SODEXO Group. Let us remind ourselves that the site had been, up until now, a dilapidated, unhealthy kitchen and that the residents had no common area in which to eat their meals. This has been an exemplary project in every way: co-ordination between the people in charge of these premises and AMTM in France, constructed in a short space of time (under a year), and the quality of this project technically. On quite a different matter, thanks to the help from AMTM, a resident at this site has been operated on and saved following a serious stroke. Today, he is out of danger. It is the moment to thank all those who, through their regular donations, allow AMTM to carry on financing the purchase of medicines and the cost of major surgery! At the request of the site Manager, AMTM doctors delivered a course to explain how the Hepatitis B and HIV viruses are transmitted. The Manager’s wish is that the residents themselves will inform the population around this region, as it is often ignorant about these matters.
ZangdhokPalri The site is mourning the loss of a huge figure from the Monastery, Lama Chimed. At the same time as the interviews and medical consultations were taking place, the team prepared, with the site Manager, for the construction of a multi-functional building, financed by AMTM and its sponsor the Foundation of the ODDO Bank. The Cluny Sisters After the departure of Sister Declan, and the return to France of Sister Theresa Raï, the AMTM Team is getting to know the new people in charge, who still possess the same unbelievable courage, intelligence and dynamism!
The Gonjang Monastery (Sikkim) Here, familiarity with the rules of hygiene is still a priority. However, on a positive note, thanks to the local doctor, Dr Golwa: the setting up of regular consultations at the medical centre will benefit the residents and the poorest people of this region.
Thanks to all of you, donors, sponsors, partners, without whom none of this would be possible!
Laurent Roubach, Head of this Mission
