    20,000 Tibetan refugees are reported to be living in Nepal, but it’s estimated there are for more than that (especially concentrated in Kathmandu). After the Lhasa Uprising, a major migration was made to Nepal in 1959, setting up refugee camps in the Himalayan border. The International Committee of the Red Cross supplied emergency assistance in the early 1960’s due to shortage of food and inadequate healthcare. In 1966, China and Nepal opened the border to Tibetans under certain circumstances, but then in the mid 1980’s, the governments tightened restrictions on border crossing.
