DDMSWCF initiates a 7 Day Compassionate Journey in Sri Lanka, marking a close to its humanitarian project
Dharma Drum Mountain’s Social Welfare and Charity Foundation (DDMSWCF) relief team, once again set out on a journey providing humanitarian aid and care in Sri Lanka from 1st - 7th December, 2011.
The DDMSWCF’s Secretary-General Venerable Guo Qi said that the Compassionate Journey has been special after years of hard work, to help complete the Sri Lanka Project which strived to offer both material and mental support to those who suffered in the deadly South-East Asian Tsunami of 2004.
The 7-day journey has been influential in speaking the language of compassion, through offering financial aid to flood-afflicted poor students, donating 100 pieces of LED solar lights to people living in refugee camps and temporary shelters, and hosting events at local schools to promote the idea of ‘Spiritual Environmentalism’.
More than 1,000 flood victims have been given care and aid on this journey.
