Tsering Tundup is a traditional Tibetan doctor, called « amchi » in his mother tongue. He is from Zanskar, a remote valley in the Indian Himalayas. He lives in a small village (Shadey) at an altitude level of about 4500m without road access. To reach his village one has to walk at least 3 days from the capital of Zanskar (Padum).
In winter access to healthcare gets very difficult in Zanskar valley since the entire region is disconnected by roadway during 7 months and it also gets difficult to move inside Zanskar to reach the central health infrastructure in Padum.
Winter is the time of studying, praying and being together for the Zanskari people. The Zanskari love their homeland and trust in their traditional medicine to which especially the people in the remote villages rely on.
Tsering Tundup is intelligent, motivated and wants to deepen his knowledge in Tibetan medicine by doing a 3 months internship in Dharamsala, where the centre of Tibetan medicine studies is. We want to enable him this internship with your help.
Tsering Tundup will give a teaching to his amchi colleagues of what he learned so that his internship will also be beneficial for his amchi colleagues.

Yeshi from Zanskar and myself spent lots of time to study the pluralistic medical system in Zanskar as part of a master thesis. On this occasion, we met Tsering Tundup who showed lots of motivation and commitment and whom we want to help to realize his project.
