I knew almost nothing about Tibet untill I stumbled into Kumbun monastery as a wide eyed 18 year old back packer in 1983... I found that once you meet the Tibetan people it's hard not to fall in love with them and their story - I was hooked. Trying to get around the border controls, I read more about their plight under the brutal chinese occupation of their country and soon became a supporter of their cause. When I met Free Tibet Campaign founder Robbie Barnett we resolved to pledge our support to their noble quest. Komodo have been making donations now and again for the last 20 years, we only hope they can get bigger and more regular.
