Charities supporting the Tibetan people and their culture
More than just a passion for delicious Asian street food
Support the Tibetan people and their culture
A big share of The Himalaya Club’s revenues goes to the support and flare up of the Tibetan people’s welfare. This happens in three ways.
1. Medical aid
Our first and primary type of support consists of the administering of medication and the teaching of medical techniques to Tibetan and Bhutanese residents with health problems. A large number of the population is unable to provide itself with the necessary medical assistance.
Our second priority is the protection and preservation of the Tibetan culture and their temples. Also here, the financial resources are scarce to maintain their immemorial infrastructure.
3. Spread the culture
Finally, we also support projects that – just like us – want to introduce the European people to Tibetan culture through music- and food truck festivals.
See the overview of our projects and follow them closely through our Facebook and Instagram.
