DDM Made Donations to Indian Humanitarian Organizations

The Covid-19 pandemic has throttled economic activities around the world. The Mahabodhi International Meditation Center (MIMC) in Leh Ladakh, India, which engages in humanitarian relief, also got into a financial predicament. In early June, Bhikkhu Sanghasena, founder of MIMC, wrote a letter to Venerable Guo Huei, Abbot President of DDM, expressing that the operation of local charities including MIMC had been impacted due to India's nationwide lockdown, and consequently influenced their tasks of providing local food, medical care, mental care etc. In response, the Abbot President immediately instructed DDM Public Relations Office to help with donations.
The MIMC Office wrote a thank you letter on 27th June to express their gratitude to DDM and to the Abbot President, saying that “We are grateful that DDM was able to compassionately make donations during this difficult time, enabling MIMC to work on humanitarian relief more vigorously, so as to help deal with the uncertainty and relieve the pain that the Covid-19 pandemic has brought to the people in India and around the world. With the power of compassion, may we pray for the afflicted in India and around the world for a peaceful mind and a healthy body.”
