Gaden Relief in India
Buddhist nuns have few sources of support and can afford little for food, clothing or other necessities. Health is also a serious problem: tuberculosis and malnutrition are endemic. It is also an unfortunate commonplace that nuns receive poorer education, funding and facilities than monks.
Gaden Relief’s Zangskar Project is funding nunneries in a remote region of northern India called Zangskar Valley, in the state of Ladakh.
