Rinpoche mail re: Didi
E mail from
Rinpoche -- will talk to us about Didi and Zadoh this year (i.e.
how is Didi going to take money to Zadoh, and tax implications).
Money should go to the right place/people. There
was kickathon organized by a karate club and they collected $7000.00
for Didi. Sharon to advise about legalities.
3) Cynthia's information
from Cynthia's projects was read during the meeting. She
wants to meet with us in November to discuss her projects.
ROPA they want to send 47(?) people to take Tibetan Medicine training
(Xining?). Needs support for their tax receipt. Cost per year
per student will about 3000 US dollars. We have to talk to Rinpoche
about sponsorship money for students for the clinic.
5) Tibet trip
for trip is now August instead of July. The doctors and other
people going should be informed of this date change.
6) Medicine needs
would be willing to take a fact finding sheet. Helen has written
letters to her. Helen read a summary of conditions in medicine,
fuel required to sterilize, water needs, medical/health, education
components etc. We must educate ourselves to see how we can really
help best. How do we spend money? Sample drugs consequences? Drugs
required, usage, distribution if any? Communication about Zadoh
projects is not always too clear to us. We should make an agenda
for next meeting with Rinpoche (Helen's letter also).
24th @ Deborah's 7.30 pm, 2376 Maple at 8th.
