orphans need care

"Hello this is Sharon,

Some family and friends have asked: "Why would a 62 year old nurse leave her life at the beach in Florida to travel on a mission to Tibet?" The answer is simply, that this is a journey of the heart. I want to give back in some small way to a country and culture that has blessed my life so richly through authentic teachers and profound teachings."

" At present, 1 in 5 infants in rural areas of Tibet die before their 2nd birthday (I am a grandmother to 6 beautiful and healthy grandchildren). Maternal mortality is 3,000 out of every 100,000 live births. One cause of newborn and maternal mortality is infection. A simple clean delivery kit containing a piece of soap, 2 pieces of clean yarn, a razor blade, and plastic drop cloth have been found to significantly decrease the death rate from infection for newborns and their mothers. The need is so great. I want to help in any way I can. I hope you will join me in any way you are able." Sharon Lang
