The Venerable Thich Phuoc Tan, the Abbot of Quang Minh Temple in Melbourne, Australia, demonstrated his generosity while on transfer break at Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok before returning to India. He and his followers took this opportunity to join with the flood relief team organised by the Most Venerable Sudhammo and gave assistance to the flooded temples. Venerable Thich Phuoc Tan brought donations and basic necessities from Australia to relieve the suffering of the monks and people who are affected by the devastating flood.
His flight arrived at 5.30am on Friday 18 November and, after meeting with Most Ven. Sudhammo’s team traveled with army trucks through the flooded road to Wat Sansuk at Klong Samwa and Wat Kubon. The Venerable Thich Phuoc Tan met the monks at each temple with his generosity offered the ‘survival kits’ and other necessities. The monks at each temple were very happy and grateful to receive help from Buddhist communities in Australia, and reassured that they were not alone in these difficult times.
