Showing Love and Care to the Hailstorm and Flood Affected
By Ugandan News Group (Originally in English)
Helping the Hailstorm Affected
The Buliisa District in Uganda experienced a severe hailstorm in November 2009 causing havoc, loss of life and injuries as an ensuing landslide destroyed over 40 homes, removed roofs from a school and government building, and damaged crops. In addition, many families were left homeless.
On November 17, Supreme Master Ching Hai contributed US$10,000 for the purchase of much needed supplies. Later, our Association relief team went to Uganda to distribute flour, rice, beans, cooking oil, salt, soap and blankets to families in the affected area.
The community deeply appreciated Master’s help and concern
for their well-being. The local chairperson, Mr. Kwonka, thanked Supreme
Master Ching Hai for Her generosity and “never-ending, precious
gift of love and care for all people around the world.” We pray
that all humankind may join together in this spirit of love and concern
for one another, our animal co-inhabitants and the planet.
Rendering Assistance to the Flood Affected
Torrential rains on February 16 caused flooding in the communities of Bwaise and Kalerwe located on the outskirts of the capital city of Kampala. Thousands of people fled from their homes in the middle of the night, with many properties being destroyed or damaged.
With Master’s love, prayers and US$10,000 financial contribution, our Association members went to these two areas and distributed much needed food and supplies. The recipients were very grateful for the love and assistance provided by Supreme Master Ching Hai and Her Association.
