“Welcome to our 2017/18 annual review … as you will see your donations have been working hard, helping us make a real difference for thousands of Tibetans. I do hope you find this issue as motivating and inspiring as all of us working for Tibet Relief Fund do!
Inside you can read about the wide range of projects we supported or completed over the last year (May 2017-April 2018). As you can see below, we are gradually increasing the amount of money distributed each year which is fantastic! This year we sent a total of £179,897 to projects and a further £99,551 to our sponsorship programme.
We can only achieve this through your support; thank you.
And a big thank you to all of you who have undertaken so many different and wonderful fundraising initiatives, ranging from holding a coffee morning, having collection boxes in holiday homes, donating proceeds from Shintaido classes to cycling the challenging RideLondon or undertaking a kora around Mount Kailas in Tibet!
On page 19 is the heartwarming story of sponsors Carole and Neil who travelled to Kathmandu to meet their sponsored student, Tenzin, who they last saw four years ago.
This year we also made an animated video to tell the story of Tibet and why Tibet matters. It’s now reached over 300,000 people, which is fantastic!
This issue is jam packed with exciting news and stories of our beneficiaries. I hope you enjoy seeing the positive change your support has helped bring about.”
