We at ATMA are delighted to learn that Dr. Tsering Norboo, the physician behind the Ladakh Institute of Prevention, our regional partner in India, was recently award the Padma Shri Award. The Padma Shri was instituted in 1954 and is awarded to Indian citizens in recognition of the distinguished contributions to their fields, including social service and medicine. It is the highest civilian honour in India and we could not be more proud that someone as deserving as Dr. Norboo has won this award. Dr. Norboo has been working tirelessly to improve the health and welfare for the Ladakhi people for over 50 years. Even today, in retirement, he runs regular free medical clinics in Leh so that those who cannot afford medical care are attended to.
We at ATMA are proud to be supporting this man and his organization for all the great work they do.
