Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association relief news update from Spain.
In late July, an oppressive heat wave brought temperatures of 41 degrees Celsius, also sparking huge wildfires in the rural northeastern areas of the nation. While working to contain the flames, five firefighters perished in the Catalonian province of Lleida, while another succumbed in the province of Teruel.

On July 23, Supreme Master Ching Hai quickly requested that our nearby Association members please go comfort the loved ones of the firefighters.

She also donated €1,000 and gifts for each of the six families.Covering their own expenses of approximately €150, our Association members from Valencia traveled to Lleida to convey Master’s condolences and love to the families.

Respecting their requests for privacy, the team gave Master’s donations, along with some of her books and DVDs, to the Fire Chief Inspector in Lleida and to the local government Chief of Staff in Teruel.
The families later conveyed their deep appreciation for Master’s care and support.

We appreciate the help of the Lleida Fire Chief Inspector and the Teruel Chief of Staff. Our thankfulness also goes to Supreme Master Ching Hai for her heartfelt concern for the distressed. Our sincere sympathies for the bereaved as we pray that such devastating events subside through humanity’s kinder ways.
