Meanwhile in Johor, West Malaysia, Lotus Light Charity Society (Malaysia) - Jin Hai Branch （馬來西亞華光功徳會金海分會）visited Taman Ungku Tun Aminah in Skudai, a low-cost housing estate on 7th November, a Saturday afternoon. Undeterred by rainy weather, volunteers from Jin Hai Branch continued to distribute “Lotus Light Gift Packs of Loving Aid” to impoverished local residents to help ease their burdens.
Little deeds of kindness and kind thoughts, multiplied by many people, accumulate to form a long, continuous stream of positive power. This is the compassion of Lotus Light Charity Society, spanning the South China Sea, warming hearts across East and West Malaysia.
