When we met Ani Lhaga, she appeared as a bright and gentle person. Only when she stood could we know what difficulties she was in. At the time and currently, she is carefully attended by women of the village and by her devoted brother, Lama Ajok. But, now, we know that they all desire that she be free of pain and be able to continue with her life. Without your help, her chance for this will be over since the recent x-rays show that the damage is close to being irreparable. The current recommendation is that the hip can still be replaced. The operation will be done in Chengdu, China, and will cost $11,000. This will cover surgical fees, medicine fees, transportation from Legon to Chengdu, and food and lodging in Chengdu for her caregivers during the hospitalization and rehabilitation periods.
Please donate to this worthy cause.
This drive is through Bodhi Seeds, an arm of Nalandabodhi, 501c3.

A short biography and thought for Ani Lhaga:
“As for the sangha of the great yana, they enter completely. They enter insightfully. They enter straightforwardly. They enter harmoniously. They are worthy of veneration with joined palms. They are worthy of receiving prostration. They are a field of glorious merit. They are completely capable of receiving all gifts.”
For me, Ani Lhaga is a member of that great sangha. Please help our sister; it will be a great blessing for everyone when she is walking and able to practice again free of pain.
