Our abbot, the Venerable Guan Cheng, established a charity in 2000, in the Guang Dong province of China. It provides humanitarian aid to the sick, elderly, and disabled, as well as underprivileged students in the rural areas of the province. Since then, we at the temple have tirelessly raised funds for the medical expenses and tuition fees of these individuals. We also purchase chairs, tables, and other supplies to improve the living and learning conditions in the areas.
To date, the International Buddhist Temple has gathered and donated approximately CAD$45,000 for this effort. Because our funds are gradually decreasing, we need your help to continue this project. A donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated.
