The Trust also supports community cultural and restoration projects, sometimes launching special appeals to do so. The beautifully restored Wangduephodrang Dzong and Pangsho temple (see photos above and below) are examples.

An appeal also contributed to the King's 2009 Earthquake Fund.

The Trust was created by Michael Rutland OBE, Sir Simon Bowes Lyon and Lord Wilson of Tillyorn. Its remit is described in the deeds as: 'for the relief of the poor, handicapped and sick in the Kingdom of Bhutan, and the advancement of education and religion.'
