The Theosophical Order of Service recently learned that the Chushul Home for orphaned Tibetan children has indeed been closed by the Chinese (see the following letter). The children are still together however which should lessen any trama they may be experiencing by leaving their home of many years.

I consider you [the TOS] to be a part of the Chushul Family and will keep you informed."
