Dharma Vijaya Buddhist Vihara Humanitarian Appeal

Buddhist Channel, Dec 28, 2004

Los Angeles, USA -- This an urgent appeal sent out to all Sri Lankans, Americans and other friends of Sri Lanka around the world - for immediate and urgent help!

Dharma Vijaya Buddhist Vihara (Temple in Los Angeles) and the Sri Lankan Buddhist Sangha Council of the United States and Canada request your assistance for the people affected by this disaster.

Boxing Day's massive tsunamis have left coastal areas of Sri Lanka in a state of devastation and shock. Reports today say that there are over 20,000 people who have died and over a million have been left homeless and displaced.

The Sri Lankan Buddhist Sangha Council of the United States and Canada is undertaking a two-fold plan to aid the victims of this disaster: First we will immediately send funds for the additional purchase of food and medicine, secondly we will directly oversee the distribution of funds for the rebuilding process.

We recommend that you send your monetary contribution to Dharma Vijaya Buddhist Vihara (or any Sri Lankan temple of your choice in the United States) so that we can send your contribution to Sri Lanka.

Please do not send materials such as clothes and other items due to transportation difficulties. We can purchase needed items in Sri Lanka which will also benefit the economy there..

Please make your checks payable to the Sri Lanka Tsunami Relief Fund and mail to:

Dharma Vijaya Buddhist Vihara,
1847 Crenshaw Boulevard Los Angeles CA 90019
Tel: 323 -737-5084 and Fax: 323-737-7915
www.dharmavijaya.org email: dharma@vel.net
Or, to transfer funds please send to Bank of America #122000661-0357105557

Sincerely yours,

Ven. Walpola Piyananda
President and Abbot, Dharma Vijaya Buddhist Vihara
President, Sri Lankan Buddhist Sangha Council of the United States and Canada
