    Helping Those Affected by a Large Residential Fire in Yunnan Province, China

     By Yunnan Province, China Relief Team (Originally in Chinese)

    On March 24, 2015, remembering Supreme Master Ching Hai’s compassionate instruction to render aid to others in times of need, our Yunnan Province Association members drove to Beihai Village in Changdian Township, Xundian County to visit villagers affected by a large fire in early March that was started accidently and burned down 12 houses. Based on our inspection of the damaged homes and on information provided by village officials, we gave RMB 3,000 to the Yang family, who had suffered the worst damage. To seven other families that were seriously affected, we also gave RMB 2,000 each and to another four families, we gave RMB 1,000 each. In addition, we distributed two bags of rice and two bottles of vegetable oil to each household in the village. The recipients were moved to tears.

    Currently, the affected people are either living in their damaged houses or in the homes of their friends or relatives. The local government plans to give each family funds to help them rebuild their homes. We wish that the villagers will soon have new places to live.

    We also shared information with the villagers about adopting a vegan diet for better health and to avoid the karmic consequences of eating our fellow beings. The villagers wrote a thank-you letter expressing their gratitude to God and to Supreme Master Ching Hai for showing Her true love and helping them in their time of need.
