Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association relief news update from Greece.
In November, at least one person lost his life when the northern regions were swept by significant flooding as torrential rains caused creeks and a river to overflow. Sending her love and prayers, Supreme Master Ching Hai had immediately asked our Association members to please check and provide comfort if anyone was in desperate need of help, saying that funds were ready for reimbursement.

After checking on the area, our native Association members went to visit the widow of the person who had perished, offering her €1,010 in cash assistance, along with informative flyers about global warming.

She was very touched and thankful, saying that the gifts really made a difference to her and her three daughters.

We are grateful for Supreme Master Ching Hai’s consideration and comfort extended to the less fortunate, and we also appreciate the caring efforts of our Association members.

Wishing the bereaved and any other flood-affected residents a smooth resuming of their meaningful lives, while we pray that such weather extremities subside as we join in adopting gentler, eco-conscious ways.
