UPDATE
♡ Love in Action ♡ Welcoming Back a Friend, Wishing a Fond Farewell to Team Members, and Grateful That Refugees Enjoy the Vegan Meals, Chios Island, Greece – September 19 to 20, 2016

On September 19, our relief team on Chios Island joyfully welcomed back a volunteer who had previously helped at the The People’s Street Kitchen early this year. She comes from Ireland and is very supportive of the work we do here. She noticed the atmosphere was much calmer in the camps especially during distribution time. At both camps we served vegan penne pasta in tomato sauce with green peas, onions and some garlic, accompanied by pairs and prunes. As soon as people got their share of pasta they immediately ate it and let us know how much they enjoyed it.

As five of our Mongolian team members would be leaving the next day, we had a special vegan dinner at Kostas’ restaurant. Kostas is the incredible person who helped start The People’s Street Kitchen with chef Ifty Patel last year. We were honored to have worked with the beautiful, loving brothers and sisters from Mongolia. We wished them well on their trip back home.

On September 20, we served green lentils with rice, another popular vegan dish among the refugees, as well as fresh tomatoes, mixed nuts and fresh bread. Some people returned to the distribution line asking for more. Volunteers form the Norwegian NGO, A Drop in the Ocean (Dråpen i havet), also tried it and loved the taste. We were delighted to hear the compliments. We wish all people in the world to have nutritious vegan meals every day. World Vegan, World Peace. #refugees #vegan #Greece

♡ Love in Action ♡ New Vegan Dishes Served, and Gratitude to Caring NGOs, Chios Island, Greece – September 14 to 16, 2016

On September 14, our relief team on Chios Island introduced another new vegan dish, tomato and fava stew, to the refugees at both Souda and Dipethe camps at dinner time. We also distributed fresh vegetables and mixed nuts. At the town square near Dipethe camp, there was a demonstration by the locals, expressing their frustrations about the refugee situation on the island. Therefore, we distributed the food inside the camp rather than on the outside footpath like we normally do. Even though we prepared a large quantity, the food soon ran out, so a couple of our team members sprinted to the local supermarket and bought sliced bread. They then went to Souda camp to bring back some extra stew. We were grateful for everyone’s kindness and patience during this waiting time. The next day, rice and red lentils in tomato sauce was served. The people at both camps loved the vegan meal, especially the sauce, so we tried our best to serve every portion with as much tomato sauce as possible. We also distributed fresh tomatoes, pears, mixed nuts, and fresh bread. An elderly lady from the Norwegian NGO, A Drop in the Ocean (Dråpen i havet), came to tell us we were doing very good job and she appreciated our hard work. Her kind words filled us with love and energy. On September 16, we prepared falafels. When one of our team members asked jokingly why we always made food on Fridays that needed to be fried? Another team member answered quickly, “because it’s Fry-day.” The witty reply brought laughter to all of us. Smelling the delicious falafels, a passerby stopped by our kitchen, wanting to buy some. We gave him a few to take home as a free sample. During our daily food distributions we have developed bonds and connections with some refugees. We get hugs and kisses from some, and one of the ladies even greets one of our members as ‘mama’. Among the newer arrivals and some of the older camp residents, we are beginning to see more smiling faces and feel grateful to see a more positive change. We are also grateful to organizations like the United States-based NGO Samaritan’s Purse and the Norwegian Refugee Council whose staff work very hard and diligently to support the volunteer kitchens on Chios Island to continue providing food for the refugees. Without the support and cooperation of these noble organizations, our relief team members would not have been able to carry on. We are grateful to all who are working towards alleviating the pain and suffering of people in distress and in need. God bless them all. #refugees #vegan #Greece

♡ Love in Action ♡ Loving Aid for Flashflood and Tornado Victims in the Philippines

From August 9 to 20, 2016, the southwest monsoon brought incessant heavy rains and thunderstorms, which caused flashfloods in many parts of the Philippines, including Luzon and Western Visayas. In addition, San Miguel, Bulacan also experienced a tornado. At least 23 people lost their lives, 423 houses were damaged, and more than 1,106 families were displaced. Our local Association members, in response to Supreme Master Ching Hai’s instruction to render assistance to those most in need, immediately formed a relief team to check the situation and contacted local officials to determine which communities were in greatest need. Master lovingly contributed US$16,000 for the relief work. #Philippines #Flashflood #Tornado

♡ Supreme Art ♡ Supreme Art Exhibition in Formosa Touched the Hearts of the Aulacese

To help new immigrants in Formosa to have a place to come together and meet, and also to help Formosan residents to learn about another culture, on January 3, Golden Year 13 (2016), the Association of New Immigrants in Formosa held a concert entitled “Love Has No Borders; Let Love Spread.” The Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association was invited to participate in this event, because the president of the Central District Association felt a lot of affinity with Master after previously visiting a Supreme Art exhibition at the Taiwan Glass Gallery in Changhua. #Taichung #Formosa #Aulacese

♡ Love in Action ♡ Deep Gratitude for Master’s Blessings and Sincere Appreciation for Volunteers’ Help, Chios Island, Greece –September 12 to 13, 2016

On September 12, our relief team on Chios Island served vegan fusilli pasta in rich tomato sauce for the first time. At both camps, everyone loved the meal, giving it a thumbs up. The red sauce was made from fresh tomatoes, tomato paste, soya mince, olive oil, onion, green peas, some garlic, and spices. In addition we served nectarines and dried dates. The distribution went quickly and smoothly in a calm atmosphere, and everyone present felt quite content.

The next day, we served delicious green lentil stew with medium grain rice as well as fresh tomatoes, fresh baked bread and dried plums. People enjoyed the vegan food very much and many asked for more. At the end of the day, we even shared our empty bags with those who requested them. We did not have to throw anything away, so we called it “real-time recycling.”

We are thankful for the kind and friendly volunteers from the Norwegian NGOs, A Drop in the Ocean (Dråpen i havet), and some of the refugees who help us set up the area for food distribution everyday, always with a big smile. Above all our deep gratitude for Master’s blessings that envelope us all with unconditional love and happiness. #refugees #ChiosIsland #Greece
