Urgent appeal for Ngoenga school
Tashi is 14 years old and has cerebral palsy. He is one of 50 students at Ngoenga School in Dehra Dun, north India, which houses young Tibetans with disabilities and provides them with food, education and medical care.
Tashi loves music, but his disability prevents him from dancing, so he joins in with the weekly dance group using hand gestures. He is a child with so much joy, and so much potential.
Phuntsok, the physiotherapist at Ngoenga, has a huge job on his hands. Because so many of the children need his help, Phuntsok can only give them 20 minutes at a time – which isn’t enough time for children like Tashi to make progress. Tashi also needs two physiotherapists to effectively stretch out his muscles, as the agonising pain makes him resist.
Tashi could make so much progress with enough physiotherapy. But 20 minutes a day isn’t enough. With such limited help, he is likely to remain very dependent on others for life.
We need your help to raise £2,115 – a year’s salary for a second physiotherapist in India. This will ensure Tashi, and the other children, get the care and attention they need to thrive.
Please give what you can – we’re counting on you.

New Gift Aid wording:
If I have ticked the box marked Gift Aid, I confirm that I am a UK taxpayer. I agree that Tibet Relief Fund can reclaim tax on this donation, as well as any donations over the past four years and any future donations until I notify them otherwise.
I understand that if I pay less Income Tax / Capital Gains tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all of my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I understand the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I have given.
