Lobzang has suffered all her life from ear infections. They were so bad that she had to take antibiotics a lot and suffered a loss of hearing. Luckily she has "mother" Glaicy in Trichy who took her to good and competent doctors to get her ears checked. They decided she need surgry on her left ear. This surgery was planned for 1/2 year now, with all exams and internship considered. Last week on thursday she underwent surgery. Glaicy, Lobzang, Hostel warden and Sr. Lourdu are taking care of her and today she left the hospital. Next week the surtures will be removed and she is able to continue with her studies. Thanks to all who supported the young woman and gave her the feeling of family.

2019: Lobzang is the sister of Rigzing-Stanzin, our first child we found way back in 20113 in Lingshed. I met Lobzang first in the mountains, a wild, untamed child, hardly visiting school, always chewing gum. Lobzang is now 19 years old.
Her mother Thugjay raised the two girls on her own, her husband had deserted her. Thugjay also took care of her old mother, who was living with them. They lived in extreme poverty in a broken and old house in remote Lingshed. Our visit changed their life forever. 2005 the small family moved to Leh and 2006 we employed Thujgay in REWA as housekeeper.
Back then already I had the future of the family in mind. Lobzang was a healthy and bright girl and my thought was that she could provide later for her mother and disabled sister. So I looked for a sponsor in Germany and sent her to Moravian School for education. The diligent girl showed herself worthy of support, she always had great grades and now she is completing 12th class in all girl Lamdon school in Leh. Meanwhile her courageous mother bought a small house in Leh and had it transformed so she could house a disabled girl with no problem. It made their life so much easier.
Lobzang finished her 12th class and we send her to Trichy, South India in June 2018 together with Dechen,another girl from a poor family we had sponsored through schooling in Leh.
Lobzang is studying Rehabilitation Science in Holy Cross College, Dechen is learing to be an Audiologist. They will be the future therapist for REWA Society.
We will keep you update on the project and Lobzangs education regularly here in the website. Please write if you have questions.
