Monlam Pavilion, Bodhgaya

The third annual Kagyu Monlam Animal Medical Camp started today at the Kagyu Monlam Pavilion, Bodhgaya and will run from 20th – 30th December, 2015.

Funded by the Foundation Brigitte Bardot and Kagyupa International Monlam Trust for the third consecutive year, many of the same faces have returned to help the animals and people of Bodhgaya. The program is staffed mainly by volunteers from across the Himalayas: Sikkim, Dharamshala and Bhutan, alongside a few from Australia, England and Germany. This year the core veterinary team from Sikkim are joined by volunteers from the Department of Livestock, Royal Government of Bhutan, who have taken special leave in order to assist at the Animal Camp.  Tibet Charity Dharamsala Animal Care Clinic, regular supporters of the camp, have deputed Dr Mili and Lobsang Thukchey, and sent donated medicines and supplies. The Municipal Corporation of Gaya have also contributed two government veterinary officers to assist. 

This international team will be delivering important animal health, welfare and public health initiatives in the holy land of Bodhgaya, the place of the Buddha's enlightenment. 

Program activities will include a street dog sterilisation and anti-rabies vaccination clinic; an out-patient's clinic where local people can bring any animals for treatment; a mobile veterinary team moving around villages treating animals remotely; and an education team teaching humane animal education in schools.
