Dear friends, 

this is an update on the nun's condition.

On 14th of December 2016 the Tibetan nun Tenzin Yingsel was walking down the mountain to Dharamsala/ North India, when she was run over by a hit-and-run car, and left in the ditch. 

Please read her story here :

People help people – Dewa Project – Singing for Peace

"Dewa Project" is a personal project created by the Tibetan singer Kharag Penpa. 

Kharag Penpa is singing for peace and with the moeny he generates he wishes to build a Children's Liberary in Ladakh. 




Kharag Penpa started this project in 2016. 

" I made my mind to 'Support Tibetan children with Elder Tibetan Hands' and have a plan for the project to build a children library in Ladakh.

Because in Ladakh, kids doesn't have enough library and books.

Donating notebooks and pencils to kids are also good, but I want to provide more sustainable support.

I'm so happy when I see the smile of children with happiness.

So this is the meaning of 'Dewa Project'. If you happy, I'm also Happy : ) "

With Love.

Music Heals – Menschen helfen Menschen

Al-Mada is the first non-profit organisation in Palestine to design and implement a music therapy program.  Al-Mada was founded in 2009 by Odeh Turjman, a well-known Palestinian musician and co-founder of Sabreen music group, and his wife Reem Abdel Hadi. Two remarkable individuals who are trying to spread their passion for music and its magic in communities that do not have access to this art. Odeh and Reem, and the beautiful staff of Al-Mada, are sharing their love for music with thousands of traumatised  women, children and refugee communities, allowing them to express, create and heal through music..

We came to know Al-Mada in 2010 and were immediately impressed with their work, dedication and results. Since that time, we are in regular exchange with them and closely follow their work. A month ago we came back from our third visit to Ramallah and the living conditions  in the refugee camps have not improved. It is a very difficult and stressful life for most of the families.

We watched women and youth during the music sessions of Al-Mada and it is amazing to see, how much joy it brings to the communities. Al-Mada also helps school children to write and create their own songs and let them perform in their communities. Music has such a powerful influence and we have witnessed the positive impact it has on their lives. But of course funding for these programs is crucial, as there are still plenty of youth groups who wish to participate in the music and arts program, and we hope we can make it come true for them.


Thank you all very much

People help People – in London

Close to the well-known Liverpool Street Station is a small Cafe, one of thousands in London

Nothing that special about this cafe but it is noteworthy that the food is good and the prices reasonable. 

The truly great thing about this Cafe is … the owner, called "Serhan". 

While sitting there enjoying my breakfast and tea, looking onto the streets, a homeless guy came by and stood still by the Cafe Window, looking inside the Cafe. I wasn't sure if he is looking to me, or someone else. I could not continue with my breakfast, turned around, and ask the owner if he knew this guy. He said "yes". 

Not knowing anything at all, I ask him if I should get this guy a tea or something, and Serhan (sorry if I spell your name incorrectly) replied "it is already in the making". 

"His food is being prepared, and coffee, too".

I asked Serhan if I could pay for this and he replied" no, don't worry, I have been doing this everyday for the past 8 years"

This Coffee Shop owner has served a hot meal and a coffee everyday, for the past eight years !!! to a homeless man. 

Serhan would not accept money from me, and had a gentle smile on his face. 

Humbled by this all I could offer to add to the coffee was a small wrapped German cookie that I still had in my pocket, to go with the coffee. 

Unnoticed by media and the world this owner is a true hero. He is doing what we all should be doing, helping and sharing. 

I am humbled and I ask of you: should you ever be in that area, please do visit the coffee shop and take your tea or lunch there.

Share the Love, and thank you Serhan !
