Zadoh Committee Meeting Vancouver
November 11, 2002
Marianne, Deborah, Helen, Didi and Evan
Review of Minutes from Toronto Meeting: Questions and Concerns
Purchase truck for garbage disposal - Who will buy and maintain
truck? Will it be used solely for garbage disposal?
There is No Doctor". The publisher of this book, the Hesperian
Foundation, has a web site with all their foreign language publications,
or information on who is translating this book. The Tibetan translation
is happening in Dharamsala. Deborah emailed the address given
but has not received a reply. Would someone like to call? There
are numerous sources for the Chinese version.
bought books in Chinese on high blood pressure, arthritis and
diabetes when she was in Taiwan. There was discussion about making
pamphlets in Tibetan about specialized illness from these books,
with the help of a translator.
Dentist - Christina Wong has opted out of going, she recommended
contacting Dr. Ken Stones, Evan contacted him and is interested
in going. Ken has asked Robbie and/or Candace to contact him at
firstname.lastname@example.org. [Conrad, could you put him on the Zadoh list?]
Training programs - Are there any local training programs to train
nurses, medical assitants etc. ie. Local Doctors Without Borders
Websites - Is there a problem with updating sites so they are
all taking about the same projects? A trademark was suggested
by Didi for all of Rinpoche¹s sites thereby designating his sites
could be used. This could give clarity to which sites he supports
and are under his jurisdiction. She suggests the symbol could
be the Tibetan for "DAR". This was given to their family by one
of the Karmapas long ago.
Would the Vancouver Zadoh committee get a charitable status under
Gaden Relief or have a standalone number?
Pamplets they are done and ready for distribution. They are
specific for the Jamseng health care centre. 1000 were made at
a cost of $700. $300 from the "Buddhist Social Action Network
of BC" will go towards the cost.
Medicine Buddha giclee prints will be distributed as a fundraiser
for Jamseng. Selling price is $50 for a 12x16 print. Some will
be sent to Toronto and Australia as well as posted on the Jamseng
"Brian Harris¹s Tibetan Voices calendar" is available as a fundraiser
There has been no correspondence received back from Cynthia Hunt
about her work in Ladakh and hygiene posters in Tibetan.
Didi discussed the Geywa project and fundraisng for it. Nawang
Khechog has been contacted by Didi and followed up by Evan to
come to Vancouver and do a benefit concert. He was wanting CTC
to be involved but was told it could not be a political event
so it was recommended that they not be.
A local doctor, Mann Koon will be asked to come onto the committee.
He is fluent in Mandarin.
The Zadoh committee is looking forward to meeting with members
of the recent Yushu trip when they have the time.
