On January 12, 2010, a devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck the lovely island of Haiti, claiming countless lives and leaving many children without families. A number of these youngsters are now living in orphanages.
An answer to the prayers of many of the children in the orphanages who were suffering from hunger, Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly contributed US$8,000 in March 2014 and asked our Costa Rican Association members to provide relief in person.
With kind assistance from Pastor Ezequiel and Pastor Die Grand, from March 12 to 17 our Association members delivered vegan food supplies to 426 children in 11 orphanages. The items included rice, beans, sugar, wheat flour, cooking oil, corn flour and spaghetti. The beautiful youngsters were very happy because God listened to their prayers. In some orphanages, they sang and danced, giving special thanks to God for the great gift. They also thanked Master for Her love and compassion and said they would always pray that God bless Master forever and ever.
Our Association members felt grateful for the opportunity to serve others and be the humble instruments to bring God’s love to those in need.
