The Durban Buddhist Association donated to each family the following : 5kgs of rice, 2Ls cooking oil, knitted woolen hats, woolen scarves, jerseys, blankets, sweets and cool drinks.
However not only that, but the Durban Buddhist Association's youths and their parents sacrificing the holidays also came to provide help and support.
Venerable Yi Chun was very grateful for all the support and had these words for the needy. 「Do not be afraid of hard work, learn skills and do not give up on your search for a stable job.」
Venerable Yi Chun also said 「 Whether it be Buddha or God, you'll find that the people who work studiously and put their hearts into their work they are the ones who are most blessed.」
「When Winter is over, spring will follow, I hope this winter you will all stay safe and warm and let us look forward to spring.」
After everything Venerable Yi Chun asked all the people present to chant a Om Mi Dou Fo and a prayer.
