In November 2012, upon hearing that the Red Cross of Montenegro and the Red Cross of Serbia were in need of financial support, Supreme Master Ching Hai immediately offered US$10,000 to each charitable organization to help them meet humanitarian necessities in the region.
In a letter of appreciation, the International Relations Officer of the Red Cross of Montenegro, Ms. Natasa Uskokovic, warmly acknowledged and thanked Supreme Master Ching Hai for Her generosity, stating that the gift will make a difference in the everyday lives of those in need.
Mr. Ljubomir Miladinovic, Head of International Relations Department of the Red Cross of Serbia also communicated in writing and expressed his organization’s thankfulness for the timely financial aid. In his letter, he assured that the donation will be used for the benefit of underprivileged children from needy families in the Recovery Center of the Red Cross of Serbia during the summer months from June to September. The contribution will enable the Center, which is located in the coastal town of Baošići by the Adriatic Sea, to provide medical care and more for the youths. Programs include a summer school where the children will learn First Aid and how to use a personal computer, as well as have lessons in humanity and tolerance towards one another. The young people will also get to spend time by the sea, learn how to swim, and participate in fun evening events.
