"Tibetans for Bihar Flood Relief Team" which was set up by the Tibetan
Youth Congress on 05th September, 2008 to coordinate relief efforts and
provide support to those who are affected by the disaster dispatched
from Dharamshala to Bihar via Pathankot on 29th September, 2008.

The TYC regions of North East  part of India have already began their
relife work two weeks back which was led by the TYC North East President
Mr. Dawa Gyalpo and other regional volunteers. The collections from
regional chapters in South and North India were stationed at Delhi.

Mr. Penpa Tsering of TYC Centrex left to survey the area few days
earlier and Mr. Tenzin Norsang from Centrex along with volunteers left
with donation amount and over two trucks of clothings to Bihar. Tibetans
across the Country contributed donation amount more than Rs. 70,000
through our Regional TYC.

Tibetans have always stood in solidarity with the people of India in
their hour of need when natural disasters have struck India. Whether it
is the devastating Cyclone that affected Orissa, the Earth Quake that
hit Gujarat, or the Tsunami, the TYC has persistently worked to
corrdinate relief efforts in these hours of most pain and suffering by
setting up an relief team.

Our hearts go out to the millions of people who have been affected by
this devastating flood.
