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."

    Syrian Children in Crisis

    Save the Children

    By USA News Group (Originally in English)

    Since Syria’s civil war began in March 2011, humanitarian needs have reached critical levels, with reports of over 136,000 fatalities. More than five million children urgently require relief, with a million who have fled the country terrified and desperate for refuge. Both within and outside their homeland, the children are facing trauma, suffering and death as the vast majority lack basic humanitarian aid.

    Feeling the pain and hearing the prayers of Syria’s children, our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai contributed an initial US$200,000 to the United States-based Save the Children, an organization working to help children in need around the world. The amount, sent in December of 2012, was designated for the group’s Syrian Children in Crisis Fund. In September 2013, as the devastating emergency continued, Master contributed an additional US$20,000 to further their noble efforts.

    We are grateful for organizations such as Save the Children that are bringing direct assistance to Syria’s young people. Their teams are on the ground helping to keep children safe, providing basic necessities such as food and blankets, and offering programs to help them cope with the tragedy and pain of war.

    Following Master’s first contribution, Renee Monroe, a senior director for Save the Children, visited our Association members to express her sincere thanks and appreciation to Supreme Master Ching Hai for Her contribution. In addition to the tremendous work that Save the Children is doing around the world, Ms. Monroe also expressed that she had decided to become vegan so as to avoid inflicting any more harm or suffering.

    We, too, join in deep gratefulness to Supreme Master Ching Hai for Her guidance and caring example. Our heartfelt prayers for peace and understanding to our brethren in Syria, as well as to the world.
