Week 22 -Support Orphans in Africa To Create A Better Future

 THE STORY:
The goal of ACC (Amitofo Care Center) is to bring up orphans in Africa with a healthy mental, physical and spiritual disposition. Master Hui Li stepped foot in Africa in 1992 and witnessed the grief of AIDS on the helpless orphans who were left behind from its wake and the constant threat of disease and poverty on the majority of people. Then, he vowed to give this life and after to heal and nurture the suffering in Africa using the Buddha Dharma. He built temple, dormitories, school, medical center and started to rear, educate and offer medical care to those in need as well as to revive African culture and provide the orphans a safe and comfortable environment with sufficient opportunities to learn basic morality and insight through Buddhism and some life skills. Also, there is a unique and remarkable characteristic of ACC although it must be stressed that none of the orphans have taken refuge to Buddhism, as they respect their religious freedom and will allow them to choose their own religions as they enter adulthood. Moreover, in the year of 2014, through the help of Amitofo Care Center, four teenagers were sent to Taiwan to attend university, and have began a new chapter in their lives. They all have been living in ACC since they were ten years old as part of the first group of kids adopted by ACC. Your donation can help the orphans in Africa to create a better future.
