Dear Friends:
Many warm greetings and love from all of us here at Tibetan Homes Foundation. I sincerely would like to welcome you into this little family of ours. It is only through the kindness of people like you that we are able to give the best to the children who had come all the way from Tibet  facing great difficulties to gain proper education. You are the pillar to this institution. I pray that your blessing hand be with us throughout.
Pamela Maykut, the professor from La Crosse, Wisconsin who introduced us to you, has left to return home after a one month stay here at Tibetan Homes. Time went so quickly by that we didn't realize it was time to leave. It has really been a great
pleasure having her around. As usual, she has been very busy meeting with the sponsored children and giving away their gifts that their sponsors had sent. She also took some of the children shopping as some of the sponsors had sent money to purchase things they required. Tashi is doing very well and was overjoyed to see Pamela and to hear from his sponsor. Very soon the school will be starting the second term exams so all are busy with preparation. We have finished the monsoon season, and the children had a great time playing in it. We hope all is well with you.
Lastly, I sincerely would like to thank you for everything and will be looking forward to hear from you soon, till then take care. With best wishes and prayers.

Yours Sincerely
Mr. Kalsang Mamgyal, Sponsorship Secretary

Dear Friends in America:
The children and all the co-workers here at the Tibetan Homes Foundation are shocked with disbelief at what has happened in the United States. The inhuman and senseless terrorist acts of high jacking and then blowing up the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. are beyond our
imagination and highly condemnable by every freedom loving people in this world.

The pictures that we see on television are indeed unbelievable and we are deeply saddened with the great number of loss of innocent lives. Our children and the co-workers are holding collective prayers meetings in every home for those who have lost their lives and for the general peace and harmony around.

This tragedy is a cause of great concern for us and we sincerely hope and pray that our sponsors and friends of the Tibetan Homes Foundation are safe and sound. At the same time, through you all we send the American people our deepest condolences to all those who have lost loved ones. The Tibetans have undergone similar sufferings,
although not of terrorist acts, but under the illegal Communist Chinese occupation and so we fully understand what this grief means.

In prayers for Universal Peace and Harmony,

Yours Sincerely,
Thupten Dorje
General Secretary, Tibetan Homes Foundation
