Himalaya Karuna Deutschland e.V.
We set ourselves challenging targets for our various support projects. The
most important aspect here is that the funds are applied in a timely manner and
at a personal level addressing those with the most trying needs.
We really appreciate any support you can give.
Using your donation, we can together make a real impact. The distribution of
your contributions will be done locally by those close to Lama Sönam.
We also cooperate with local institutions
and organizations so we can benefit from their experience and enable us to
develop projects together.
