BRM needs your help

In 1980, Ken and Visakha Kawasaki, already Buddhists, began working in Indochinese refugee camps in Thailand and the Philippines. They became familiar with many of the problems refugees face both in the camps and in resettlement. They found few organizations interested in the Buddhist activities which were often central to the communities they were supporting. In some refugee camps, the Buddhist temples received no outside support at all. After two years, the Kawasakis accepted teaching positions in Japan, where they had lived some years before. Every summer, however, they returned to Thailand to visit the refugee camps. On these trips, friends offered donations for the Buddhist monks, temples, and refugee communities. Buddhist Relief Mission was born from this small relief effort.

The organization now supports isolated and remote Buddhist communities around the world.

How you can help:

By volunteering to help, perhaps with secretarial work, teaching monks, or doing computer work. Contact BRM for details.
