Love In Action

Master is always deeply concerned when disasters occur in any part of the world. Upon hearing news of such events, She immediately provides financial assistance and sends relief teams. Through such efforts, Her unconditional love and support are conveyed to those affected, thus reducing their suffering while helping them to rebuild their lives.

In recognition of the selfless actions of governments, organizations and relief workers around the globe, Master expresses Her gratitude as follows: "Thank you, all the international help that brings care and necessities to afflicted victims. Thank you all the relief workers for taking time and forsaking your own comfort, even traveling great distance on unfavorable roads and conditions to bring love and assistance to people in a time of need. May Heaven bless you abundantly for your generosity and noble sacrifice."

    Providing Aid to Refugees in Berlin, Germany

     

    By Berlin, Germany Relief Team (Originally in German)

    From October to December 2015, in response to Supreme Master Ching Hai’s loving instruction to assist the refugees, our Berlin Association members have worked together to help refugees in Germany and in other countries. We have so far used EUR 4095.62 from Master’s fund for the relief efforts.

    We sent EUR 500 to ODIS (Our Dream Is Soccer) to support their project of bringing sports to young refugees in Berlin. In addition, we are in contact with a place where 14- to 17-years-old refugees are living to see how we can provide assistance.

    On November 17, we gave coupons and women’s necessities to those who live in a sports hall near our Berlin Center. We also bought nine pre-owned bicycles to another refugee camp, so that the people staying there could travel in the city more independently and economically. The refugees were delighted to receive these gifts.

    Also, we went to a refugee camp in Tempelhofer Weg in Berlin on November 23. We brought suitcases, men’s winter shoes, undergarments, stockings and socks for girls, and sweaters for men and boys.

    On December 1 and 14, we went to Landesamt für Gesundheit und Soziales, or Office for Health and Social Affairs in Berlin, where the refugees come to register. and distributed warm vegan meals and clothing items such as sweaters, winter shoes, underwear and socks. To uplift their spirits, we shared flyers containing Masters comforting words in Arabic.

    On December 15, one of our Association members traveled to the Regional Welcome Treff (meeting place) for asylum applicants and refugees in Cottbus, southeast of Berlin. He distributed jackets and winter shoes, which the refugees could choose and try on. Also, he gave each refugee there a small Christmas cake and a flyer containing Masters comforting words in Arabic.
