Tibetan Monk Has Taken in 170 Children

A Tibetan Buddhist monk took in 33 orphans after an earthquake in 2010 and now he is looking after 170 children. Lama Lobsang originally started caring for the children on a temporary basis after the earthquake.

“After that, more and more came,” he said.

“This isn’t a school, or an orphanage, it is a home,” the monk told BBC News. “They call me, ‘Sang father,’ and I call them, ‘my children.'”

Lama Lobsang looks after the children’s health, as well as their mental well-being and education. He funds the program through his religious lectures and donations from his followers. Though he oversees dozens of children, he says his relationship with them is a close one.

“These kids are the future,” the monk told BBC.

“They may be orphans, or from single-parent families, or from poor families. but I want to give them all a home.”
