Many destitute refugee Tibetan monks and nuns are living in the streets and poor houses in India and the Himalayas after fleeing decades long fierce political persecution in Tibet. They are without reliable food, shelter or medical care. Often they are ill, elderly or torture survivors.
The Compassionate 2000 Project - Created in 1998 in response to a request by HH Dalai Lama's Dept of Relgion and Culture for sponsorships to help with basic needs; food and primary health care. The Dept requests $7.00 per month to sponsor a refugee monk or nun. We work directly with the Dalai Lama's Dept of Relgion and Culture. Your donation is safely and securely distributed by them. There are 70 on our waiting list. In India $7.00 goes a long way to help with food or medicines for each monk or nun.
How do I pay for my sponsorship? You can pay two times a year for $42.00 or annually for $84.00 online with Paypal or by personal check. We will send you a reminder when your donation is due again.
If I can't sponsor right now, is there some other way I can help? Yes! We desperately need donations for our Emergency Fund to help with extreme medical needs of the sponsored monks and nuns. Please see our Emergency Fund page
Do I receive a picture of my sponsored friend, can I write to them? Yes. You will receive a 4 X 6 photo of your sponsored monk or nun and a brief bio of them and you can write to them when we send your donation.
Can I sponsor more than one monk or nun? Yes. Many of our sponsors have chosen to sponsor multiple friends.
What happens if I can't continue to sponsor my monk or nun? Most of our sponsors have remained with us for many years. Sponsorships are considered longterm so the refugee monks and nuns can depend on their donations to eat, pay for shelter or medications. If you arent sure you can sponsor longterm, its better to make a donation to our very important Emergency Fund. These funds are critically needed for medical care for sick, elderly monks or nuns who are often torture survivors.
