In response to Supreme Master Ching Hai’s compassionate instruction to help individuals in need and those less fortunate, our Association members from Hamburg, Germany bought warm clothing for the homeless community in November 2016, as winter is the most difficult time for them. We contributed EUR 1,530, and purchased items such as jackets, socks, pullovers and blankets.
In order to distribute these items effectively, we contacted Ms. Julia Radojkovic from the “Mobile Bullysuppenküche Hamburg,” a group of volunteers who distribute warm soup, coffee, tea and toiletries on certain Sundays to those who are homeless in the city.
On November 13, together with Ms. Julia Radojkovic and her team, we went to Reeperbahn Street, where we found many homeless people. In addition to the winter supplies, we also distributed warm vegan goulash, homemade bread and vegan muffins prepared by our Loving Huts in Hannover and Hamburg. The recipients were extremely happy and grateful for the warm food and clothing. Some of them immediately put on the jackets. We were so happy to see their smiling faces.
We thank Ms. Julia Radojkovic and her team for their support, and we pray that our humble efforts will bring a little warmth and comfort to those without proper homes, especially during the winter season. Our deep gratitude to Master for the opportunity to help our less fortunate brothers and sisters.
