By Paraguay Relief Team (Originally in Spanish)
Heavy rains starting in May 2014 in Paraguay caused severe flooding affecting tens of thousands of families, inundating homes and destroying crops. Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly instructed our local Association members to provide relief assistance, adding that financial help would be available upon request. Our local members contributed PYG 11,025,000 (US$2,500) and traveled to the seriously affected Cerrito District in the department of Ñeembucú, where we distributed more than two tons of vegan food to 80 families, as well as some candy for the children.
The recipients were extremely happy and grateful because the help came at their time of great need. Feeling Master’s compassion for these beautiful people, our Association members thanked Master for the opportunity to convey Her love.
