BRM Projects - Sangha Hospitals


Buddhist Relief Mission provides assistance, medical equipment, medicine, and supplies, to Sangha hospitals. Reusable medical instruments are always welcome!

These pictures are from two Sangha hospitals in Burma that Buddhist Relief Mission supports.

Now at that time, a certain monk was suffering from dysentery, and lay where he had fallen in his own excrement. The Lord and Ananda were visiting the lodging and they came to where the sick monk lay, and the Lord asked him: "Monk, what is wrong with you?"
"I have dysentery."
"Is there no one to look after you?"
"No, Lord."
"Then why is it that the other monks don't look after you?"
"It is because I am of no use to them, Lord."
Then the Lord said to Ananda: "Go and fetch water. We will wash this monk."

So, Ananda brought water and the Lord poured it out while Ananda washed the monk all over. Then taking the monk by the head and feet, the Lord and Ananda together carried him and laid him on a bed. Later, the Lord called the monks together and asked them: "Why, monks, did you not look after that sick monk?"
"Because he was of no use to us, Lord."
"You have no mother or father to take care of you. If you do not look after each other, who else will? He who would nurse me, let him nurse the sick." – Vinaya IV 301
