Today Tibetan Delek Hospital has come a long way from its inauguration in 1971 with our present health services reflecting a well-balanced combination of both the curative and preventative aspects of health. The facilities at Delek are available to all who seek our services especially those who are poor. Our hospital receives no grant from the Tibetan Government or from the Department of Health, of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA). The hospital aims to be self reliant through income-generating projects and its nominal fees from patients who can afford to pay.
The majority of the hospitals funding, however, continues to be provided by generous donations from dedicated supporters and contributors worldwide.
Since most of the hospital’s patient are poor and destitute, the hospital provides special subsidized or free medication facility in such cases.
The hospitals finances are managed by two Accountants and audited each year by the Auditor General of the CTA. Detailed reports are sent to the donors in accordance with agreements reached between the funders at Delek.
The achievements of the Tibetan Delek Hospital over more than four decades, are all due to the blessings of His Holiness the XIV Dalai Lama, the generous support of donors and above all the hard work and dedication of staff.
Finally we, at Delek, would like to take this opportunity to thank all our generous donors, supporters and well wishers who have helped us all over years.
