Tayul Gonpa was historically supported by a culture that provided for spiritual communities, but this is no longer the case as the population decreases in the area. Tayul Gonpa is no longer able to support the nutritional and medical needs of the nuns and their general well-being. With waning support from the community and their families, the nuns need our generosity.
The Tayul nuns are now in the twilight of their lives and facing old age and sickness, though they continue to radiate much joy and compassion. Two of the nuns are now in their late-80s, one is 80 and the youngest is 62. Funds are needed for their medical expenses as well as their ongoing sustenance. When funds allow, the Tayul nuns share their offerings with other nuns in the valley at Lapchang Gonpa and Lama Gonpa.
