Yes, the place that we have called Legon Clinic has a beautifully descriptive name: The Impartial Loving Health Center of Za Legnang Monastery.
This place, tucked into the valley by a river in the Himalayan Mountains, is now a refuge for many people seeking help for illnesses - some very severe. We know that the Chinese medical doctor, his wife/nurse, and the Tibetan doctor have seen thousands of people in the first year of this Center's existence. Having received few details of actual numbers treated or of diseases treated, we do know that women have delivered babies there, that families have brought in ill babies and children, and that men and women of all ages are showing confidence in the services given. Your generous donations through Bodhi Seeds make it all possible.
The following pictures give us some feeling of the conditions and the treatments given.
We have in mind to continue to focus on the needs of women, especially during childbearing years. This has been an extremely neglected area exemplified by the ongoing high mortality rate of women and babies during childbirth.
Based on many, many peoples' experiences before us, we at Bodhi Seeds hold these aspirations: help to promote health literacy and treatment at the clinic and to difficult to reach mothers and children through the use of mobile camps, and apps; continue to work with Amjis (traditional Tibetan doctors) who are the front line contact for health in the community; find methods to improve clinic's medical data collection.
Knowing that this may take generations, Bodhi Seeds welcomes anyone who is knowledgeable and/or supports this endeavor. Thank you for your understanding, confidence, compassion, and generosity.
