Tibetan Homes Foundation, Mussoorie
Mrs Passang, known affectionately as “Gran Passang” followed His Holiness the Dalai Lama into exile after the Chinese occupation. She worked as a road labourer while her husband worked as a cook. Soon after, they were blessed with children, but life took a turn for the worst when she lost her husband and son in an accident. After moving in with her daughter in Haridwar, she sold flip flops to survive. She is now in an OAP facility and requires sponsorship for her basic needs.
