Help in Action
Lama Gangchen Kiurok Tsochun
is a voluntary non-profit association founded by T.Y.S. Lama Gangchen, a Tibetan lama healer. Resident in Italy since 15 years Lama Gangchen works tirelessly to promote reciprocal exchanges between the east and west, be it from a cultural point of view or that of humanitarian aid in favour of those places less fortunate. The Tibetan name “Kiurok Tsochun” that he gave to the Association means help for the poorest and most forgotten.
Registered with the Italian Government in 1997, the Association – run entirely by volunteers – has been active since 1992. It offers long distance adoptions and humanitarian aid projects in favour of countries that are underdeveloped.
The humanitarian aid organisation of Lama Gangchen
The long distance adoptions project is active in Nepal, Tibet and India; it is possible to “adopt” a child but also a sick, disabled or elderly person, or even a Tibetan monk, of any age, living and studying in a monastery.*
Fund raising is aimed at the realisation of healthcare, educational and social projects within the Himalayan Community, such as the construction and running of schools, clinics, dispensaries, monasteries, aqueducts and the rehabilitation of people with disabilities.
Keep up with the latest news of all the projects of the Association through up to date photos and reportage from Nepal and Tibet.
*Some of the donations collected are also used in the realisation of basic infrastructures – schools, clinics and aqueducts – in the communities in which the children live.
