Unity to recover- a year after the cyclone

090521_dscn8639s_low   The other day, JEN held the first year anniversary memorial service with the villagers for those who were killed by the cyclone.

  The monk of the village held the memorial service for the villagers mourning the lost. A lot of women were weeping. It has been a year, but still the pain in their mind remains. The staff from JEN attended the ceremony and were strongly moved. We felt again that the Buddhist faith is very close and precious for the people in Myanmar.

  After the memorial service, children and adults were eating all together. Being busy for the recovery in their daily life, the villagers cannot gather frequently as they did before. However small the assembly can be, we hope that the villagers will recover their ties, little by little.

  On this occasion, we again sincerely pray for the souls of the lost, killed by the cyclone “Nargis ”. JEN will continue its support hereafter so that the devastated area can recover soon as possible.
