Buddhist Global Relief
« on: September 27, 2015, 08:56:06 am »
“Giving is good, dear sir!
Even when one has little, giving is good.
An offering given from what little one has
is worth a thousand times its value.”
- Samyutta Nikaya 1:33

Our Mission

Our mission is to combat chronic hunger and malnutrition. Bearing in mind the Buddha’s statements that “hunger is the worst kind of illness” and “the gift of food is the gift of life,” we sponsor projects that promote hunger relief for poor communities around the world. We pursue our mission by:

    providing direct food aid to people afflicted by hunger and malnutrition
    helping develop better long-term methods of sustainable food production and management appropriate to the cultures and traditions of the beneficiaries
    promoting the education of girls and women, so essential in the struggle against poverty and malnutrition
    giving women an opportunity to start right livelihood projects to support their families.

We also seek to raise awareness of global hunger and advocate for an international food system that exemplifies social justice and conduces to ecological sustainability.
