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 traveling great distance on unfavorable 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 Christmas Cheer to Washington, D.C., USA

    By USA News Group (Originally in English)

    On December 16, 2012, following Supreme Master Ching Hai’s heartfelt request to help those in need stay warm, with funding available for reimbursement, our Association members from Virginia and Maryland distributed 100 gift bags to less fortunate individuals in the Washington, D.C. area.

    The gift bags were filled with basic winter items including warm blankets, clothes, socks, gloves and hats. Fruit, bottled water, and vegan snacks were also added to help convey to the recipients a wish for a blessed Christmas. The delicious plant-based spring rolls and vegan “ham” sandwiches were prepared by the local Loving Hut. Supplies were purchased with US$2,543 contributed by our Association members.

    The recipients, some of whom were in wheelchairs, gratefully received the gift bags and vegan food. Our Association members were thankful for the opportunity to serve those in need, whose smiles were the highlight of the day as God’s warmth and blessings were felt by all present in the holiday spirit.
