Speech by Fo-Ching Lu, President of Sheng-Yen Lu Foundation
TECO Office, Bellevue, WA – Twenty-one days ago, typhoon Morakot devastated Taiwan with its powerful wind and rain. Hundreds of people were swept away within minutes along with their homes, schools and everything they need for daily life.
On behalf of the Sheng-Yen Lu Foundation, I am directing $20,000 US dollars today to Taipei Economic and Cultural Office (TECO) to assist in emergency relief efforts.
Sheng-Yen Lu Foundation is a new nonprofit organization founded by Living Buddha Lian Sheng. We are guided by Buddhist principles of compassion and are proud to show our care and support for the typhoon victims with today’s contribution. After today’s event, the Foundation will continue to direct funds through Lotus Light Charity Society of Taiwan, an organization that provides over 6,000 meals to disaster victims every day.
Please join me in doing what we can to help. Thank you!
