Tibet Relief Fund was founded in 1959 to help Tibetan communities in need. Today we continue to work with Tibetans in India, Nepal and Tibet through local projects that address basic needs and provide vital healthcare and education. We also respond to emergencies and promote self-sufficiency in Tibetan communities to help them build a positive future.
Many Tibetans are refugees, having fled their country to escape China’s occupation; others live as nomads or in remote areas of Tibet with little or no access to education or medical facilities.
In addition we run a sponsorship programme for nearly 1,000 children, elderly Tibetans, monks and nuns.
