Medical help

The purpose of the Khyenkong Tharjay Manjughosha (KTM) association, created in 2018, is essentially to provide medical care to Indian and Tibetan people residing in India or coming on pilgrimage to Bodhgaya, in the State of Bihar in India.


After the first medical missions, from December 2019 to February 2020, one of our interpreters at the time, Rahul, suggested that we help him distribute food packages in the villages around Bodhgaya, where people had no support or alternative income during the Covid-19 lockdown.


This is how the association KTM contributed to the distribution of food by a financial aid of 8710 € in 2020 and 6250 € in 2021.


In December 2022, at the same time as the resumption of medical missions, the need for blankets for the most deprived villagers in the vicinity of Bodhgaya, the winter nights becoming cold in recent years,


The association therefore purchased 200 blankets that were distributed at the end of December 2022.


Concerning the medical missions, two general practitioners, including the president of the association, Régis PROUST and Anne, a colleague of Vendée, were assisted by a nurse, Krista, sent by a partner association, Karmapa Health Care Project (KHCP) ; they went to the villages where they provided basic care to about 300 people in three weeks!


In January, another general practitioner, Serge, assisted by his wife (pharmacist preparer) and Agnès, a nurse who already came to help in January 2020, took over  before passing it on to Nicole and Solange, two experienced doctors, coming for the last winter period, ending at the end of February 2023.


We need your financial support to continue to ensure future medical missions !

Food aid

In India, the lockdown period, which began on March 24, 2020, has exacerbated poverty and precariousness in a country where nearly nine out of ten workers work in the “informal” economy, without a fixed income.  


Containment was maintained until September 6, 2020 in the state of Bihar, India’s poorest State.


The association Khyenkong Tharjay Manjughosha (KTM), has decided to support several distribution of food parcels in the villages surrounding Bodhgaya . The initiative for this food aid comes from  Rahul, a young Indian who had assisted the association’s doctors as an interpreter.


For example, on August 15, 2020 in the village of Jarhari, 120 packages of food for a week were distributed and on September 7 in the village of Ram Nagar Bigha, 27 km from Bodhgaya.   This action was financially supported by the partner association, Karmapa’s Health Care Project (KHCP), which provided €4,700 (out of the total amount of €8,710), which represents support, during each food distribution, to more than 150 families.
