Pairing assistance boosts Tibet’s development

LHASA: Kunsang still remembers the major surgery he underwent five years ago, and is grateful to the surgeon Zhang Yang.
In 2017, Kunsang was diagnosed with a meningioma, a large brain tumor, in a local hospital in southwest China’s Tibet Autonomous Region. Due to the complexity of the operation, Kunsang was suggested to receive treatment outside Tibet. However, his family didn’t want him to travel to an unfamiliar place.
Zhang Yang, a doctor at Peking University First Hospital, was attending a pairing-up assistance program in Tibet. Having learnt what happened to Kunsang, he decided to do something for the Tibetan teacher. –Agencies
