Karmic reasons brought The Compassion Project into contact with the Canadian Engaged Buddhism Society after the 2015 earthquakes. And that bond keeps growing. CEBA puts the heart of Buddhism into action in many ways -- by helping suffering animals, re-building homes, operating schools, empowering women -- the list goes on. And now they've sent three of their nuns to Tsum.
These young, brave women have just completed their auxiliary nurse-midwife training and will be working with our community health worker Dinesh up in Tsum. They will also be reaching out to local women who already assist with childbirth for knowledge-sharing. Dhammadina, Sudharma, and Mudita are sharing their time and knowledge in this remote area and we are so very happy. Thank you!
CEBA is paying for the helicopter transport of the nuns and for warm clothes and food. The Compassion Project is helping by sending up 100 birthing kits.
