2020 is destined to be a special year that will be remembered in history. The COVID-19 virus outbreak has swept the globe just like a dark cloud hanging over the lives of people all over the world.
We realized that we were in the same boat, all of us were vulnerable and disoriented, and it was also important that this virus that had woken us up also united us, and the unity was that we realized we should working together.
So we immediately took positive action. The International Cultural Ati Yoga Association in China put an amount of 2000 euro, the Dynamic Space of the Elements cultural association put an amount of 3000 euro and, with support from other organizations and individuals, we raised a total of 85638.76 RMB (the official currency of China) as a donation and gathered four batches of epidemic prevention materials within 15 days. Up to April 15, we have purchased and collected: 1,500 medical N95 respirators, 10,000 medical surgical masks, 3,000 medical disposal masks, 174 medical protective face masks, 150 sets of medical protective clothing, 10,000 protective isolation gloves, and 100,000 epidemic prevention scented tablets. Another 400 medical N95 respirators and 1,000 surgical masks are about to be purchased.
The above donations were packaged in 25 batches and sent as international parcels to the municipalities of Arcidosso, Castell’Azzara, Montepulciano, Asciano, and Santa Fiora, the Ling of Rome, Merigar West, the Ling of Brescia, the Manfredonia Public Hospital, the retirement home and the Ling in Bologna, the ling in Venice, the ling in Umbria, all in Italy, then to Dzamling Gar in the Canary Islands, to Switzerland, to the Gar in the United States and local residents.
The Dynamic Space of the Elements cultural association completed the customs clearance, packaging and delivery of donated materials to local governments, institutions, branches of the Dzogchen Community and residents in a short period of time.
By this week, all donations had arrived in their destination, and we were receiving messages of thanks from Italian local governments, nursing homes, lings and individuals.
We still have some protections left and we are still looking for people who need help.
We are most grateful to the following governments, institutions and individual donors from the Dzogchen community who strongly support our charity donation campaign:
Municipal Government of Liupanshui City, Guizhou and Guizhou Baxter Agricultural Technology Ltd. (a separate donation of 350,000 yuan worth of epidemic prevention scented tablets), Beijing Awake Art Studio (a separate donation of epidemic prevention supplies that has already been sent), Mr. Tian and Li Shaoyu (both donated and sent epidemic supplies separately), Samtengar (donated and sent epidemic prevention supplies separately), the Organizing Committee of the Dali Yoga, Mingyue Ying Lanhu and Cindy Su Lan (individual donations and supplies sent), Gephelling of Taiwan and Dzogchen Group of Singapore, etc.
We would like to give special thanks to the more than 100 individual donors from the Dzogchen Community who donated their money (see the chart below). We would also like to appreciate Mr. Tian, Mr. Grape, Hui Xingzhe and others for helping us to purchase epidemic prevention materials at competitive prices and providing information on purchasing resources.
Thank you for all the good work you’ve done to wake us up and unite with each other. We look forward to the day when the virus is gone, only love and hope will last!
