    Bringing Comfort in Niamey, Niger

    By Benin News Team (Originally in English)

    During August 2013, heavy rains in the city of Niamey, Niger, West Africa caused widespread damage affecting over 8,300 people in the city, destroying more than 1,700 homes, and claiming three lives. Deeply concerned by the devastation, Supreme Master Ching Hai compassionately instructed our neighboring Centers to help. A team of our Association members from Benin departed on September 13, 2013 to convey Master’s love, prayers and condolences, and to supply aid made possible by Her caring contribution of US$10,000.

    With the help of local officials and the Red Cross of Niger, our team purchased essential materials such as rice, cooking oil, bedding and soap, and then made and distributed care packages to those in need. All the recipients and the Red Cross workers expressed their appreciation for Master’s loving concern. Also wishing to convey his gratitude, Governor of Niamey, His Excellency Hamidou Garba Mamadou sent a letter of thanks to Supreme Master Ching Hai.
