Dharamshala: - On 11 September 2011, twenty Tibetans fleeing Tibet were apprehended at the Tibet-Nepal border. A few days later three more caught. It has been almost ten days since their detention at the Immigration Center. Members of HURON (Human Rights Organization of Nepal) have visited the Tibetans and asked the immigration officials to release the 23 Tibetans but since the Chinese government's heavy intrusion into this issue, there is a serious risk that the 23 refugees of which 20 are teenagers between the ages of 16-18 years old, will be repatriated back into the hands of the Chinese officials any day.

With all the money raised they could give a new pair of shoes to 80 Tibetans in October 2009.
