Love In Action

Master is always deeply concerned when disasters occur in any part of the world. Upon hearing news of such events, She immediately provides financial assistance and sends relief teams. Through such efforts, Her unconditional love and support are conveyed to those affected, thus reducing their suffering while helping them to rebuild their lives.

In recognition of the selfless actions of governments, organizations and relief workers around the globe, Master expresses Her gratitude as follows: "Thank you, all the international help that brings care and necessities to afflicted victims. Thank you all the relief workers for taking time and forsaking your own comfort, even travelling great distance on unfavourable roads and conditions to bring love and assistance to people in a time of need. May Heaven bless you abundantly for your generosity and noble sacrifice."

    Bringing Aid to Flood Victims in Pakistan

    By Pakistan Relief Team (Originally in Urdu)

    Heavy rains in July 2015 led to devastating floods in Pakistan, affecting 300,000 people and claiming more than 80 lives. Chitral District, in northern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province, was one of the hardest hit areas where more than 400 homes were destroyed or damaged, dozens of roads and bridges were swept away, and 32 people lost their lives. Deeply concerned for the Pakistani people, Supreme Master Ching Hai immediately offered relief funds, of which US$10,593.20 was used by our local Association members in carrying out relief efforts.  

    As Pakistan Red Crescent Society was the only organization given access to the affected areas, our Association members prepared the relief items based on their assessment report. On August 6, we delivered emergency supplies including CGI (corrugated galvanized iron) sheets for roofing, tarps and 25 tool kits to allow the people in need to build their own shelters. These supplies will support around 25 families of 10, for up to five years. In the distribution, first priority was given to households with orphans, women, or those who are elderly. We also told them about Supreme Master Ching Hai and Her love for them.
