Please help – nun run over by car and left in the ditch

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. 


On 14th of December, 2016 the nun walks to Dharamsala, to get a bus to attend the Kalachakra Buddhist Teachings with H.H. Dalai Lama in Bodhgaya. On the way to Dharamsala she was hit by a car and was left lying in the ditch. Both feet have severe injuries. So far, Ane Tenzin Yingsel had 6 operations – further operations can not be ruled out.

The hospital costs so far amount to 600,000 Indian rupees (about 7,200 GBP). To date, approximately 200,000 Indian rupees (about 2,400 GBP) have been donated.

PLEASE donate even a small amount – every little helps – literally !
