A Buddhist temple in Pasir Gudang, Johor Baru, has allocated RM46,000 to homes for the underprivileged and a Chinese primary school.

Chi Tian Si Buddhist Temple founder Yun De said RM20,000 was given to SJK(C) Ladang Grisek in Seri Alam for its development fund while RM2,000 each were given to 13 children and old folk’s homes in the Johor Baru area.

“This is part of our efforts to spread the spirit of giving and caring to the surrounding community in conjunction with a recently concluded 23-day special prayers.

“We hope our small gesture will lift their spirits, especially when many have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and the floods, ” he said after presenting the cheques to the recipients at the temple.

The temple in Taman Scientex also gave out 400 food hampers worth RM70 each to needy families in the area.

The hampers consisted of dry food such as rice, noodles, flour, sugar and snacks.

Yun said the temple had consistently given out aid and free food to the public since the pandemic.

“Along with our branch in Taman Ungku Tun Aminah, we give out hundreds of free vegetarian meals daily, ” he added.

Tebrau MP Steven Choong,

A caring and generous society, he said, could help improve the lives of the underprivileged.

“The rainy weather and floods was another blow for many needy families.“Such a gesture by the temple would surely provide them with some relief, ” he added.
