Villagers Overjoyed to Receive Flood Relief
By Malaysia Relief Team (Originally in English)

that destroyed homes, took 17 lives, and forced many families
to evacuate as rockslides collapsed buildings. The most severely
affected villages were Rada'a, Baidha'a, Malhan in Mahweet Province,
Dhuhran in Hajjah Province and Wadi Kaifa in the Najra District.
After learning of the victims’ plight, our merciful Supreme
Master Ching Hai immediately pledged US$15,000 in aid and requested
a relief team be sent to the affected regions.
On October 18, a group of our Malaysian Association
members arrived in the devastated areas, to bring comfort to
those who had lost family members and lacked food and shelter.

information on climate change, were distributed to 151 families.
The villagers were overjoyed with the God-sent relief, which
helped them repair their homes and meet their daily needs. They
asked the team to send their heartfelt gratitude and love to
Thanks to Master’s compassionate arrangements
and the help of local residents, the five-day relief effort went
smoothly. May the pure hearted Yemen people soon understand the
root cause of all disasters and turn to the vegan diet to live
in peace and harmony.
