Welcome to Fresno Buddhist Temple


Fundraising for Kumamoto, Japan‏

http://randalrauser.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/candle-in-the-dark.jpgDear Nembutsu Friends,

The two major earthquakes that recently shook Japan have resulted in many lives lost, over 100,000 persons displaced and significant damage in and around the city of Kumamoto, Japan.  The resulting landslides have destroyed roads and communities.  Survivors need access to emergency supplies such as food, water and medicine in addition to long term recovery assistance.

The Buddhist Churches of America (BCA) will soon establish a relief fund in coordination with the Hongwanji in Japan.  This, unfortunately takes some time.
In the meantime, the Fresno Betsuin has begun collecting monetary donations for the relief efforts.  All funds collected by the Fresno Betsuin will be forwarded to the BCA, who in turn will forward the funds to the Hongwanji for direct distribution to organizations in need.  All donations collected will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts from this disaster.

If you wish to contribute, donations may be made through the Fresno Betsuin.  Please makes checks payable to “Fresno Betsuin Buddhist Temple” and note “2016 Japan Earthquake Relief” in the memo section of the check.

Please keep the people of Japan and Ecuador in your thought… Namo Amida Butsu
