In the wake of Covid-19 Pandemic and the recent surge of cases in India, the health and social infrastructure of the country found itself under pressure. As such the world witnessed many tearful and mournful scenes and international help was mobilized for the victims with first necessities and hospital materials.
In this context, the numerous local Indian Tribes were not left unscathed either…
The Drokpa Tribe is a Tribe in the region of Ladakh of 4000 souls famous for their colorful outfit and for being descendants of lost soldiers of Alexander These people are distinct from the rest of the Tibeto-Burman population in Ladakh in terms of appearance, culture, language, and religious beliefs, and they have upheld the purity of their race for centuries.
With the situation in the country, they have been left isolated with limited access to essential ressources like food and medical tools.
A call to action has then been organized with the already present NGO The Last Avatar, led by engaged photographer Aman Chotani, and AirTrib, a Business travel agency, based in Switzerland.
Both structures are supporting the Tribal Cause, considering them as the Last Guardians of the Ancient World. The Last Avatar has the aim to visually document the legacy of the Majestic Indian Tribes in order to preserve their timeless knowledge for future generations. While Airtrib is proposing an ethic and responsible Business Flight offer with the pledge to reverse part of the ticket profit to supporting partners and organizations.
United they stand to come to help the Drokpa Tribe in Ladakh int these difficult times in order and protect their inestimable cultural Heritage.
