Michael Blakey Memorial Fund

by Richard on December 13, 2006

A fund has been set up to honour Mike’s memory with the intention of establishing the “Michael Blakey Centre” in Dharamsala. The Centre will be a focus for the work that Michael was passionate about - addressing the needs of the homeless, the poor and the deprived communities of India. You can give online through the Michael Blakey Memorial Fund webpage.

You might also consider supporting the wider work of Mike’s charity, Tong-Len (registered charity number Charity Number SC036383), which helps displaced communities in the Kangra Valley, Himachal Pradesh, to achieve a secure and sustainable future by addressing the root causes of their poverty and ill-health through a range of education and health-based projects.

Mike’s death has been a tragedy and many people are going to struggle to come to terms with it. But I am sure that Mike’s family will find some comfort in knowing that the work which was so important to Mike will grow and develop.
