Can you spare £6? The price of a bottle of wine?

We’re asking 2666 people to give just £6 to help repair this 600 year-old monastery in Nepal. Please help us if you are able to.

We need your help to raise £16,000 in 60 days to save the Langtang monastery in this remote Himalayan village in Nepal, near the Tibetan border.

This historic monastery is the heart of the whole community. It is now in need of emergency repair and restoration. The Langtang community have raised a staggering £20,000 so far (the average annual income in the village is only £825) – they need our help to raise the final £16,000.

Please share this poster/link/blog post – the more people we can reach, the better our chances of reaching our goal.

Over the next few weeks I will be posting more information about the work needed and the Tamang people of Langtang – watch this space!

Thank you!

  1. Reblogged this on The Barby Bulletin and commented:
    A while ago a received an email from a lady called Suzi Richer who is running a campaign to restore a Buddhist monastery in the villlage of Langtang. I was in Langtang back in May and was saddened to see this monastery in such a bad state. I know it would a lot to both the locals and the tourists who visit to have it restored to its former glory. If you have a love of Nepal, its culture and its people, and 6 quid or so to spare (the price of a bottle of wine, as Suzi so aptly puts it!), then it would be very gratefully received by Suzi and the rest of her team. The campaign runs until the end of this month, so time is of the essence!
