TCEF Health and Humanitarian Fund: Our cultural tours take us to TCEF program sites and Tibetan communities in exile. During our travels, often, we across people in real need, either with some serious health or financial problems. The needs are stark and they are right there in your face. The creation of this fund will allow TCEF to immediately intervene and help those people in need whose paths we cross. As with all programs, this too, can start in a small way and with dedication, we can make it grow. A good inspiration is our elders sponsorship program. We started this in 2005 with only a few sponsors. Now we help over a hundred.
