Donation of Hospital beds and equipment ( July 2014)

He who attends on the sick and invalids attends on meSupreme Gautama Buddha

Most human beings spend much of their time in looking after the body. They spend time and energy in doing exercises, such as running, walking, swimming etc., to keep the body healthy. These activities have a tendency to produce temporary physical and mental states of invincibility and indestructability. However much one cares for the body, it will decay and worsen with age and time. This eventuality is unavoidable and reflects the true nature of our physical bodies.

With the noble aim of helping the sick and the elderly, in July 2014, Melbourne Mahamevnawa Buddhist Meditation Centre took the initiative to collect and ship medical equipment to the needy in Sri Lanka. This was gratefully received by both the hospitals and patients who were in great need of sent equipment.

Having understood the positive impact their donation made toward improving the quality of medical care in rural Sri Lankan communities, Melbourne and Sydney Mahamevnawa Buddhist Meditation Centres jointly organized, collected and arranged shipment of hospital beds and equipment worth more than Rs. 5 million to Sri Lanka again in July 2014. Under the patronage and guidance of residing monks of Mahamevnawa Monasteries in Australia, this was kindly facilitated by Mr Sarath Silva and Upasthana Committee members.

The distribution of this shipment of equipment to selected rural and teaching hospitals was held on 17/08/2014 at Kundasale Mahamevnawa Asapuwa, Sri Lanka with the help of Mahamevnawa Suwa Sewa Organisation. The recipients of these equipment were extremely grateful and appreciative of the thoughts, efforts, and sacrifices made by all those who were involved.

MMBMC gratefully acknowledge the support and assistance extended to us by all those who contributed to make these donations a success. We respectfully share all the merits collected during conceptualizing, organizing and completing this meritorious activity with everyone involved and who appreciate such endeavours.
