More photos! Here are some young monks at a Nepalese monastery expressing thanks to Louisiana and to Louise Guidry, Neil's mother, who raised $2750 through the donation of one of her paintings. More building and food supplies have been ordered and should arrive soon!
Neil G. of LHA is in Nepal. He sent sent some stunning photos of what's been happening in the last week or so up the mountain from Katmandu. Neil wrote "the main thing that is hitting me is lightness of spirit of the Nepalese people and the community spirit they share and express."
In India and Nepal, the primary goal of LHA is to help facilitate a healthy transition for the Tibetan refugees, and provide assistance as they work to rebuild their lives and preserve their sacred culture. In Louisiana, we work to support the India projects and work to help make Tibetan teachings available in the west. We strive to create a cross-cultural bridge between the people of Tibet and Nepal and those of Louisiana. In the wake of the devastation caused by hurricane Katrina, LHAinc. expanded its mission to provide social and material support services in Southwestern Louisiana and Mississippi to storm affected communities as well.
