Vision Fest is a benefit for the Louisiana Himalayan Association’s Clear Vision Program, providing free eye care and glasses for Tibetan refugees in India.
The Louisiana Himalaya Association (LHA) is a 501c3 nonprofit social work organization dedicated to improving the lives of Tibetan refugees, and to making ancient Tibetan wisdom traditions available to the world. LHA has been working from locations in both New Orleans and Dharamsala,India since it was established in 1997. Over 300 volunteers per year now offer their time and resources with LHA’s different projects.
Tibetans who’ve made the treacherous escape by foot over the Himalayas to India seeking asylum face huge resettlement issues. LHA has helped them to find housing, healthcare, employment, education,medical , dental, eye care and more. And Tibetans have much to offer in return. For more than 2,000 years, Tibetan culture has been developing ways of coming to know the human mind and spirit—a tradition that can help us confront a modern world facing enormous challenges. LHA works with a variety of schools and organizations, including Tulane and Loyola Universities, Ochsner Medical Center and the Louisiana Mississippi Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (LMHPCO) plus other local, national and international groups to host Tibetan scholars and organize cultural events. These schools and other organizations send groups to India each year who volunteer for social service activities and learn directly from the Tibetan people.
