DHARAMSHALA, April 27: The Tibetan leader His Holiness the Dalai Lama and the Central Tibetan Administration have expressed sadness and solidarity with the people of Nepal which was struck by a massive 7.9 magnitude earthquake on Saturday, leaving at least 2000 people dead and hundreds others homeless.

In letter to the Nepalese PM Sushil Koirala, the Tibetan leader wrote, “The people of Nepal and Tibetans have been neighbours throughout history and many Tibetan refugees live in Nepal. I offer my condolences to you and to those who have lost members of their families, friends and their homes in this tragedy.”

The Tibetan leader wrote that he will ask his Trust to make a donation towards rescue and relief efforts.

Meanwhile, the Central Tibetan Administration has expressed its deep shock and sadness over the tragedy that struck the Himalayan nation, which is home to some 20000 Tibetans.

The Kashag has donated 12,00,000 Rupees (INR) towards relief works in Nepal. The CTA will hold a special prayer session this evening at Tsuglagkhang to offer prayers for those who have lost their lives in the quake.

The Kashag has also ordered its Representatives abroad and the Settlement Officers to collect donations from their respective areas towards relief efforts in Nepal.

The Kashag further instructed all Tibetan settlements, monasteries and communities in Nepal to actively engage in rescue and relief efforts in their localities.

The Tibetan PM Lobsang Sangay said, “At this dark and painful time, words fail to convey how deeply we feel for the people affected in Nepal, Tibet and India.”
