Kudos to Brother Yeap Cheow Soon who initiated the donation drive on behalf of Mangala Vihara (Buddhist Temple) with the consent of Chairman Dr. Lim Ah Swan, raised a total sum of $13,160.00 for flood relief for the victims in Myanmar.
The funds were remitted progressively during the drive from August 20th 2015 to September 3rd 2015 in two installments to Dhamma School Foundation in Myanmar for distribution to the relief centers viz: $5,000.00 on August 28th 2015 and $8,160.00 on September 5th 2015.
It is only appropriate to place on a record a token of appreciation to Bhante Cakkapala who assisted to identify Dhamma School Foundation as administrator of the funds. To read more on Dhamma School Foundation please follow the link: Dhamma School Foundation .
And the most important thing, a big thank you to all the generous donors as listed below:
“Giving food, one gives strength; giving clothes, one gives beauty; giving a vehicle, one gives ease; giving a lamp, one gives sight.” (SN 1:43).
Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
