In June 2013 as a result of heavy rains and rivers overflowing, vast areas of Poland were flooded. Fortunately, firefighters were quickly called into action to help prevent inhabited areas from being inundated and to assist the affected communities. As soon as learning that two no-kill animal shelters, Przystań Ocalenie in Tychy and Korabiewice Shelter, located 70 kilometers south of Warsaw, suffered severe damages, Supreme Master Ching Hai graciously contributed EUR 5,000 to each.
Przystań Ocalenie shelter, a safe haven for many horses, cows, donkeys, sheep, goats, cats and dogs, used the funds for renovation. The staff wrote in the thank-you letter to Master, “There are no words that can express our gratitude for your great generosity shown to the beautiful animals.”
The Korabiewice Shelter used the funds to buy a tractor for help with work at their facility. At a gala for Korabiewice Shelter, Master was honored with a Friends of Animals statuette given by Vegetarians’ International Voice for Animals (Viva!), a United Kingdom-based animal rights group. The award was given in gratitude for Master’s loving concern for animals and Her generous contribution to the Korabiewice Shelter.
May Heaven bless all of our animal co-inhabitants with safe, happy and peaceful lives.
