Dharamshala,India — On Monday the President of the Central Tibetan Administration (CTA) Dr Lobsang Sangay, departed for the Australian capitol city of Canberra to host the CTA’s 2018 yearlong international Thank You campaign.
The Thank You Australia event will highlight the CTA’s gratitude towards 60 years of Australian support for the Tibetan cause. Further the CTA will highlight how Australia has supported Tibetans in host countries, especially in aspects of education and health.
The campaign was launched by President Sangay who earlier addressed that “The current year is significant since March 31, 2018, will mark the beginning of the 60th year of His Holiness the Dalai Lama stepping on Indian soil,” as well as tens of thousands of Tibetans escaping into India.
President Dr Sangay also attended the Thank you Netherlands event this past November as part of his six-nation tour of visiting Europe and North America. At the Netherlands event, he emphasized his gratitude of continued international support for the Tibetan cause. President Dr Sangay will return to India on December 7th.
