Dzongsar Tibetan Hospital
In order to preserve and develop Tibetan traditional culture; to protect natural environment; and to promote local education, culture, economy and medical care in a sustainable way, Dzongsar Tibetan Hospital (under the wise direction of Dr Lodrö Puntsok) set up Yothok Yonden Medical Association. This is the first non-government organization (NGO) in Dege County. Also, the second NGO in Ganze Prefecture of Sichuan Province, China. Even though the name of the organization is "Medical Association", it serves local people in many different aspects.
A free promotional DVD "Yothok Yonden Gonpo Medical Association 2007" has been produced and published by the Association (Secretary: Karpu firstname.lastname@example.org); and narrated i) in Chinese by Wang Yong Gang & Lee Xiao Qing, and ii) in English by Warren Rodwell.

More people are needed to participate in Dzongsar community projects & work. You are always welcome to become volunteers in the organization. If you are willing to help without salary, accommodation can be offered in Tibetan areas as well as the opportunity to develop your skills to the fullest.
