In Tibet, we say that children are like small trees – if we help them to grow straight and strong then they will become the building materials, such as pillars and beams, for our community. Likewise, mothers are like the land and we need to have healthy mothers and families to produce health children. - Dr. Kunchok Gyaltsen, Founder of Tibetan Healing Fund
