On March the 25th, members of the two clubs Inside the Art and Azalight took a meaningful trip to Dong Trang Temple, Hoa Lu, Ninh Binh to bring the orphaned children there gifts from adults and students. The two clubs donated 20 million in cash, 4 carton boxes of clothes, along with other utilities and goods and form a library with the 200 books of all subjects we ourselves picked and donated to the temple.
The gifts were given to the Senior Venerable of the temple, Thich Dieu Nhan. She gave a graceful thank to our members and show appreciation for the gifts that we brought.
Not only that, members also categorized, organized and decorated the bookshelves of the library. Afterwards the 2 representatives cut the ceremonial ribbon together and gave presents to unfortunate children who couldn’t afford books or go to school.
In the afternoon, Inside the Art and Azalight joined hands and performed chemical experiments for the children to make them more fascinated with science.
We also did serious labor work on the temple’s garden to somewhat experience and understand the hardship that the monks here go through to grow a potato or tomato for these children here.
The trip ended with great success. We hope that this small act would help to bring the children at Dong Trang temple a better life as well as encourage the youth to take some efforts in helping the unfortunate.
