To those disturbed by the Bhutanese situation as raised by this weekend’s piece in the New York Times, I offer up one way to keep informed, and also, to help. Please check out the Bhutan News Service.
It’s run predominantly by 5 volunteers around the world in service of the community that’s been displaced. They run on a shoestring (less than 5k a year), and need support.
Even if you can’t give financial assistance, they are seeking other help, such as filing for a nonprofit status so they can apply for journalism grants, training, server support, etcetera. Their goal, too, is to have a gathering this fall.
If you are at all interested in media-in-exile from anywhere, but from Bhutan in particular, and if you can help in any way, you can find a link here.
