Our Aid

Yesterday we went down to Bodhiraja Buddhist Society at No. 9 Geylang Lorong 30 (many thanks to Ricky for the lift!) with our small gift towards the Sri Lanka civil war refugees.

There is a big box placed in the front yard of the BBS with a poster of the donation drive pasted on it. I peered inside and there was still nothing in the box. If you remember, please do make a trip down either to the foundation or the Sri Lanka High Commissioner with your aid donations.
