The Dharma Drum Humanities and Social Improvement Foundation (DDHSIF) has won the 9th National Civic Service Award for its long term dedication and contributions to charities.
This award is held every second year by the Executive Yuan to recognize non-profit organizations for their outstanding efforts and contributions to charities.
Venerable Guo Dong, Abbot President of Dharma Drum Mountain, attended the 9th National Civic-Service Award ceremony on 2 November, 2011, at Taipei’s Grand Hotel and was presented the award by the Premier of the Executive Yuan, Dun-Yi Wu, with honor.
Venerable Guo Dong said that this honor is for all followers of DDM and Sangha, and more importantly, it is very encouraging and reassuring that the idea of ‘Protecting Spiritual Environment’ as advocated by the late Venerable Master Sheng Yen, has been highly recognized by the government and the public.
