I planned to go to Yushu during my pilgrimage to Kham after attending the Guru Rinpoche festival in Aba. But the pilgrimage turned into a relief support for Kunga Sangbo Rinpoche’s family and other victims in Yushu. Here are some pictures from the earthquake site. I wished to be with them more but thought it would be better to help from home:
A girl at her collapsed house
Survivor camp atmosphere – this one is from Tashi Darthang village where I stayed
The disaster brought Tibetans from many regions together. Monks from various monasteries came to rescue.
Half collapsed houses
Wishing we could do more to help relieve our fellows’ suffering
Survivors’ new homes
How we cook
This one collapsed 4 days after the earthquake.
Damage that couldn’t be described
Exhausted rescue soldiers
