Mrs. Dolma Yangchen, the President of Tibetan Women's Association (TWA) met the fire victims of Lal Qila Tibetan Sweater Seller Market in old Delhi and donated Rs 6,43,950 on behalf of the association on December 18, 2016.
The market was destroyed by a massive fire that broke out early in the morning of November 8, 2016.
Mr. Sonam Topgyal, member of Lal Qila Tibetan Sweater Sellers' Association gave a brief account of the present situation particularly the rebuilding of the market and the donations received.
"So far, we have received donations amounting to more than Rs 30 million. As it is not enough to re-establish all the 138 shops, we have built only 40 shops to sell our goods. The profit of the sale will be distributed equally to all," says Sonam.
