On October 4, 2015, extreme rainfall inundated the French Riviera – in some areas, the equivalent of almost two months worth of rain fell within three hours. The resulting flash floods caused 20 people to lose their lives, and more than 20,000 people were left without electricity. Supreme Master Ching Hai immediately instructed our French Association members to render aid. We contacted the Red Cross and brought them a large quantity of clothing, as well as toys and vegan treats for the families with children. All the items were purchased using EUR 1,074.19 from Master’s relief fund. The staff of the Red Cross was very grateful for the help.
We pray all those affected by the floods be comforted. As more and more people are choosing the compassionate, vegan lifestyle, may tragic events such as this cease.
