DDMSWCF concludes the Seven-Year Relief Programs in southern Leyte Province, Philippines
The Dharma Drum Mountain Social Welfare and Charity Foundation (DDMSWF) have successfully brought its seven-year relief programs in southern Leyte Province, Philippines to an end.
The programs helped thousands of victims in both material and monetary terms after the mud sliding disaster of February 2006 that killed more than two thousand people.
Soon after the disaster, the DDMSWCF, with the help of local Chinese business societies, initiated relief programs for victimized orphans. With DDMSWCF’s long-term material support, children were able to continue their studies, with some soon to graduate from university.
On 26 October 2012, the DDMSWCF’s Secretary General, Venerable Guo Qi, flew to the southern Leyte Province to offer the last material and relief resources, and encouraged the students to cultivate gratitude in the heart at all times.
