Sincerely pray for the victims and family members and wish them well

At 3.57 am on February 6, 2016, an earthquake measuring 6.4 on the Richter scale rocked Taiwan, in Meinong District of Kaohsiung. The earthquake, with a depth of around 16.7 km, caused widespread damage and the collapse of a residential building, named Weiguan Jinlong in Yongkang District, Tainan. In total, 116 people were killed and more than 500 injured.

On November 29, 2015, Tzu Chi Education Sponsorship Scheme’s humanities course was held for the second time at KL Tzu-Chi Jing Si Hall. The course included a series of programme to nurture filial piety in the children, in the hope of inspiring gratitude in them. The cohesive effort of Tzu Chi Education and Charity Teams, while leveraging the power of community, had made this event a success.

November 22, 2015 was a special day for some students in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. That morning, 932 students (Chinese, Malay and Indian) from 86 schools, in their neatly attired school uniforms and accompanied by their parents, congregated at KL Tzu-Chi Jing Si Hall to attend the 2015 Tzu Chi Study Grant presentation ceremony.

Since the roll out of the Tzu Chi Study & Award Scheme four years ago, volunteers and teachers have strived to unleash students’ potential; to motivate them to work harder to improve their studies and conduct.

There were families that turned out in full force, waiting expectantly to receive their Deepavali gift packs; and there were some children, who did not know what to expect at their first participation. However, when the gift packs that were full of goodies were finally in their hands, happiness was all written on their faces. For these underprivileged families, to enjoy a happy festival was no more wishful thinking.

It is not a ship, but a long motor-propelled boat without any form of shade. Rain or shine, everyone on board has to bear with the cold or heat. But to the school children of Paitan, this has never been a problem, as the long boat is the only mode of transport to get them to school, and more so, towards a better tomorrow.

Three months after the devastating earthquake in Nepal, Tzu Chi relief is now embarking on mid and long-term effort. At noon on July 24, 2015, Yaw Ah Moi and Lee Ley Hua, who are volunteers from Tzu Chi KL & Selangor, arrived in Nepal on a one-month “home-visit”.

“Very touching, I felt respected. The moment my child went on stage and vowed, I felt really proud,” said a tearful father, Anwar bin Latip.
