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 travelling great distance on unfavourable 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."

    Warmth and Love for the People of Pakistan After Widespread Flooding

    By Pakistan Relief Team (Originally in Urdu)

    In early September 2014, torrential rainfall caused widespread flooding in several provinces in northern and western Pakistan, affecting more than 2.5 million people and resulting in the loss of 367 lives. Almost 700,000 people were evacuated, over 100,000 homes were damaged and more than 2.4 million acres of crops lost. As a result of the disaster, many of the displaced people suffered from the chilling cold weather in December. Feeling the pain of the Pakistani people, Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly offered a US$10,000 fund and asked our local Association members to provide relief.

    Forming a relief team in Islamabad, our Association members traveled a long distance to help the most vulnerable individuals in the high altitude Haveli District of Azad Kashmir. On December 15 we distributed 340 blankets to the people in need, primarily elderly individuals, women, children and those who are disabled. We also shared literature about Master, while conveying Her message of love and peace. The recipients were extremely grateful to Master for remembering them during their difficult times.
