    Helping Those Most Vulnerable After Landslides in Afghanistan

    By Afghanistan Relief Team (Originally in Dari)

    On May 2, 2014, two consecutive catastrophic landslides occurred in the Argo District of Afghanistan’s remote Badakhshan Province, causing more than 2,100 people from 300 families to lose their lives, and another 4,000 to be displaced.

    Profoundly concerned about the situation, Supreme Master Ching Hai requested that our Association members in Afghanistan assist those affected, and contributed US$30,000 in relief funds. Our relief team then assessed the area and identified 100 vulnerable families in need of basic items to survive. On May 15, our team provided each household with 25 kilograms of rice, 50 kilograms of wheat flour, 16 kilograms of cooking oil and a cylinder of propane gas using the funds provided by Supreme Master Ching Hai and US$2,522 contributed by our local Association members. Our team also gave tents purchased with the relief fund to 70 families for temporary shelter. Through Heaven’s blessing, the distribution project was conducted smoothly.

    After learning of Supreme Master Ching Hai’s humanitarian efforts and vision of world peace, one woman said, “Please convey our sincere thanks to Supreme Master Ching Hai and let her know that the Argo people will never forget her kind support, which reached us and our children in a time of hardship. We love you and we pray that you always remain in good health.”

    After the aid distribution effort, our relief team members felt honored and grateful for the chance to share Heaven’s love to landslide-affected families in Afghanistan.
