Volunteers Packing Food

The BCA Social Welfare Fund was established to aid those suffering from deprivations of basic human needs. Our goal is to help others sustain or attain a way of life which promotes mental, physical and spiritual well-being. We accept applications for assistance from non-profit organizations, and also initiate efforts for disaster relief.

By trying to live according to the Buddha Dharma, let us make an effort to consider other peoples' joy as our own, as well as other peoples' suffering as our own. In this way, we can live to the best of our ability, aspiring to live up to the Buddha's wish.
