From December 2013 through to early 2014, Northern Thailand experienced unusually cold weather with temperatures reaching as low as minus 15 degrees Celsius in some areas.
Our Chiang Mai Province Association members were contacted during this time by Ban Mae Math School, which is located in Chiang Dao District, Chiang Mai Province. The school advised us that they were in urgent need of blankets for the children. Following Supreme Master Ching Hai’s instruction to always help those in need, our Thailand Association members quickly assisted and contributed THB 12,870 (US$390) with funds available for reimbursement from Master.
Ban Mae Math School is a boarding school in the mountains and quite remote, with no telephone access, attended by 149 students ranging from kindergarten to grade 6.
Enough blankets for each student were purchased, as well as vegan snacks. All the items were delivered personally by our Association members from the Chiang Mai Center.
We pray that all the diligent students at Ban Mae Math School stay warm and cozy during the winter season. May Heaven bless them with much love and happiness all year round.
