PROJECT Sangha VITAMIN

US
North America

.

Following I SAVED A LIFE’s successful October 2021 distribution of vitamin packages to 1,500 Covid patients and elderly monks above 60 years old within our sangha community in South India, a poll was conducted among those monks of Sera who had benefited:

Question 1: Did you feel the benefit of taking the vitamins?
Yes 97.5%
Question 2: Would you take the vitamins again?
Yes 88%
Question 3: Would it be beneficial if vitamins were offered to all the monks?
Very beneficial 97.5%

The support received for the first project was greatly appreciated and the monks have been enthusiastic about receiving further vitamin supplies.

Due to the current restrictions in place, many monks are not able to get tested for COVID-19 even though they feel unwell. Currently the common method in combating the COVID-19 there is by merely being prescribed to take fever reducing medication such as paracetamol, and self-quarantine.

BY HELPING TO PROVIDE VITAMINS FOR THE MONKS YOU ALSO HELP TO CONSERVE THE UNIQUE BUDDHIST TEACHINGS AND TIBETAN CULTURE.

We have therefore decided to organise another project to provide vitamins for all 5,000 Sera monks. This project will coincide with the Tibetan New Year (Losar) celebrations which begin on March 3rd for the Fifteen Days of Miracles.

Thank you in advance for being part of this worthwhile project. The monks will benefit tremendously from your generosity. We believe this can initiate a new culture and awareness of taking vitamins as an additional health supplement to their current diet.

OCTOBER 2021 VITAMIN DISTRIBUTION

TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR SANGHA

I would like to thank I SAVED A LIFE and all the sponsors who contributed in the distribution of vitamin supplements as they really helped my body to recover faster. I had more strength and energy after taking these vitamins.
- Ven. Tsawa Soe Gyaltsen
The most practical way of helping is to provide medication for those who really need it. As Buddha said “providing medicine to patients at the right time is the most important.” We are very grateful to Rinpoche and the donors, and deeply appreciate the work you have done for us in this difficult situation. Please continue to do wonderful things like this.
- Ven. Lobsang Choedak
It has been almost one year since I contracted Covid-19 and taking vitamin supplements like Vitamin C and D has helped my body recuperate. So, I would like to thank all the people associated with this project.
- Ven. Lodoe Kalsang
Having these vitamin supplements on time must have built a better immune system as I didn’t catch Covid. Thank you so much.
- Ven. Lhundup Menlha
During this pandemic, “I Saved A Life” and the sponsors of vitamin supplements to the sangha and elderly monks who suffered from Covid, have helped us immensely to quickly recover from post Covid symptoms and to build a better immune system. I think all the sangha will greatly benefit from such an initiative.
