On April 14th a 6.9 earhquake hit Kyegundo (pronounced: Jye-kun-do) , a city of more then 100,000 mostly Tibetans in Kham, the Eastern region of Chinese- occupied Tibet. As of 6 days after the quake, the official reports indicated over 2000 deaths, over 12,000 people injured and more then 80% collapsed buildings. these numbers are increasing by the day. unofficial reports indicate deat toll of over 4,000 and on the rise.
Today most of Kyedundo’s residents are homeless and sleeping outdoors in freeezing temperatures, more then 12,000 feet above sea level. The local hospital was destroyed. Rescue efforts are slow because the city is 500 miles from the nearest airport and 18-hour drive from the closest city. many chinese relife worker are suffering from altitude sickness. Tibetan monks and surviving lay people are at the forefront of the rescue effort and need our help.
