The main goal of PCT is to ensure that those in critical condition, including those in need of intensive timely proper treatment and make the entire exiled community medical viable.
PCT is currently advised by His Eminence Professor Samdhong Rinpoche, Venerable Lama Lobsang and Kasur Rinchen Khando Choegyal (the sister in law of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama). In order to ensure the success of the organization, seven full-time PCT employees are also required at our Delhi office, including:
- Director (Sonam Wangyal)
- Manager/Programme coordinator
- Head of the Field Work
- 3x Field Workers
This will allow PCT to provide the high standard of medical care that all humans deserve.
Treatment will mainly be arranged at government hospitals in Delhi, including All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS), NITRD, Kalawati Saran Children’s Hospital, Guru Nanak Eye Centre, and Safdarjung Hospital Delhi, PGI Chandigarh and KEM Mumbai, and Tanda Medical College (H.P.) These hospitals offer some free treatment and charge only minimal rates for major surgeries, while providing world class medical care.
Currently, we are in need of a variety of volunteers, including much needed doctors, nurses, social workers, medical students, and English speakers, who will come from around India as well as abroad to support PCT.
With little support, this project/service can provide all Tibetans living in exile with all kinds of specialized proper medical treatment, regardless of their ages, gender, and socioeconomic status. In addition to the medical services, we provide education in hygiene/prevention of diseases in multiple languages: Tibetan, English, and Hindi. PCT also provides awareness education in: Tibetan medicine, sexual health, HIV/AIDS prevention, and overall preventative care that accords with the Buddhist lifestyle. Education in these crucial areas would help Tibetans to avoid developing critical medical conditions.
