This includes US$6.5 million in humanitarian aid to provide refugees with healthcare, cash aid for necessities for those living outside of settlements, and additional hours of electricity in camps to ensure the continuity of remote education. Individuals who no longer have the means to earn their livelihood will also be helped. The remaining US$1.5 million will be used to strengthen Jordan’s case management systems and capacity for large-scale COVID-19 testing. Previously, the US has contributed to improving services at more than140 health facilities in Jordan, benefitting 70% of the population. Our sincere appreciation, United States.

Report finds market for vegan food to experience rapid growth.
India-headquartered market research company, Absolute Market Insights, has released a report stating that the vegan food market will grow by 11.4% annually and globally reach an estimated US$27.98 billion by 2027.

British Airways transports animal friends to new life.
British Airways recently flew 36 dogs and 14 cats who had been left homeless in Cyprus to the United Kingdom in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Charities throughout Cyprus helped rescue the companions, who were given medical checkups before going to new homes or specific rescue centers. Highly qualified staff helped care for the feline and canine passengers aboard the airplane, which was also transporting vital medical supplies and other goods. Captain Paul Walker-Northwood of the flight crew stated, “We are sure [the dogs’ and cats’] arrival will bring real much-needed pleasure to their new families during a challenging period.” Many thanks, British Airways plus charities and adopters involved. We pray that all our lovable animal neighbors facing unfortunate circumstances are protected and cherished, in Celestial compassion.
Time now to enjoy the joke of the day entitled “Lasting Marriage.”
When I asked my friend Larry the secret to his 52 years of marriage, he replied:
“We never go to sleep angry.”
“That's a great philosophy,” I noted.
“Yes. And the longest we’ve been awake so far is five days.”
And now we have a heartline from Xiao Hua in China:
Hallo, Supreme Master Television team! I am an initiate from China. My hometown is a beautiful and prosperous city, and I live in a community with a forest-style garden. There are more than 2,000 households and a few initiates in the community. We play Supreme Master Television 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. Ever since Supreme Master Television was broadcasted, our village has changed greatly. Three groups have been formed by the community residents. The first group has 500 members who are in charge of promoting public security and environmental protection, and caring for flowers, trees, and birds. There is a big fruit tree in front of my window and there are hundreds of birds and magpies coming to eat and drink every day, and some of them take a bath in the water basin. Looking at them, I feel joyful and happy. There are more than 100 people in the second group, and they are specialized i n taking care of trees. They volunteer to water, prune, trim, mulch, and fertilize the trees. Besides that, they also plant flowers and grass in unused places, thus the community has become greener and the air has been cleaned. The third is a non-profit enzyme group. The teacher explains to the group the effects and benefits of enzymes, which not only helps reduce garbage but also protects the soil. Sometimes, the teacher also goes to the residents’ houses to help produce enzymes. Sixty percent of the households use enzymes to wash dishes, vegetables, and clean the floor. It has reduced the garbage and protected the environment. It is due to Supreme Master TV’s blessing that people’s hearts have turned to be loving and kind. I hope that every one of us takes actions for the sake of our future generations, all human beings, and our beautiful home planet; and that we all live a virtuous life, give our love and help to the world, meanwhile help the animals and stop killing by converting to the vegan diet; and that all wars will be stopped, peace will be right here in front of us, and paradise will appear on earth again! We are very grateful for Master’s blessing and the efforts of the Supreme Master TV team that have made the greatest contribution to world peace.
