In the Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association Relief News from Taiwan (Formosa) …
For decades, our beloved Master has reminded us to selflessly serve others, and help to care for humans and animals, conveying particular concern for vulnerable people and animals during unfavorable weather and natural disasters. In January 2021, our Association Members from Taoyuan, Taiwan (Formosa) provided loving winter relief aid for local residents and animals.
First, our Association members visited the Hutou Mountain Dog Shelter. Fifteen large bags, each with 18 kilograms of vegan dog food, and a cash gift of 12,000 Taiwan dollars (US$430) were distributed in order to help the shelter care for their sweet animals.
“I am Hsu Chun-Lan, from the Hutou Mountain Dog Shelter. We thank Supreme Master Ching Hai for Her heartwarming assistance in donating vegan food for our furry kids. Thank You!”
To aid those most susceptible to the cold weather, our Association members visited the Taoyuan Peace Branch of Humanity-Peace Charity Foundation, where they donated 2,000 hand warmers, more than 500 bowls of instant noodles, and 120 winter coats. The items were gratefully received, especially the coats.
“We thank Supreme Master Ching Hai for these warm coats in the winter. Thank You.”
“We thank the Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association for sponsoring essential items during the chilly winter season each year, which we can distribute to various groups of people in need, including the homeless, single mothers, and the socially marginalized. We are especially grateful to the Supreme Master Ching Hai International Association for providing 120 warm winter coats. We will distribute these coats to those in need. Together, let us Be Vegan, and Make Peace.”
Our Association’s relief team members are deeply grateful for Master’s loving guidance about helping our neighbors, and give thanks to everyone who assisted in this relief effort. May our vulnerable brothers and sisters in Taiwan (Formosa) and throughout the world stay safe and warm in Heaven’s gentle embrace.

Our appreciation, World Bank, for your generosity and care of Togo, especially during this challenging time. In Divine light, may all the kind Togolese people flourish in abundance and wellness.

Good day, compassionate friends! I’m Valentina the vegan Venezuelan Red Howler. I love being vegan, and I bet you will too. Join me! Here are some ideas on how you can protect yourself and your car during a hailstorm. If there is a local weather advisory for hail and your home doesn’t have a garage, cover your car with thick blankets, comforters or big towels that you may have. If you are away from home, drive to the closest parking garage or another covered area if possible, where you can safely wait until the storm passes. Or, if you are not able to get your car undercover, you might protect your windshield by using the floor mats in your car to cover it. It will help to prevent the windshield from cracking, so you can safely drive your car home after the hailstorm. If you have to drive through a hailstorm, go slow and do not leave your vehicle as hail can be large and fall at a rapid speed, putting you at risk of injury. Thank you for your attention and lots of love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants. Now, the worldwide weather.
Artificial intelligence may advance our understanding of ecology.
A team of researchers from Portugal, France and Finland has utilized artificial intelligence to understand the highly complex way in which ecology or species move and evolve over time. By employing a method called symbolic regression, the computer software could generate formulas that can be used to predict and model different ecosystems. Their results help to explain why some species exist in certain places, and not others, as well as the relationship between the life cycle of islands for example, which start off emerging from volcanoes and change over time, and the number of species they support as they evolve. Such fascinating news, researchers from Portugal, France and Finland. May your computer models help to deepen our appreciation of our animal and plant co-inhabitants, and assist us in living harmoniously with them, in Heaven’s grace.

Vulnerable individuals receive plumbing services at no cost.
Kindhearted plumber James Anderson from Burnley, United Kingdom, was lauded as a hero for providing free emergency plumbing repair services during the pandemic to more than 2,000 senior citizens or people living with disabilities. He closed his private business in 2017, founded the non-profit organization DEPHER (Disabled & Elderly Plumbing & Heating Emergency Repair), and since then has helped over 10,200 families in need throughout the UK, free of charge. DEPHER also helps to pay utility bills, offers personal protective equipment, and has a food bank to assist people in these difficult times. The organization’s operations have been dependent on GoFundMe donations or private jobs. Commenting on his altruistic deeds, Mr. Anderson told BBC, “We need to be a human race, to look out for each other.” A standing ovation and God bless you, noble James Anderson! May DEPHER’s endeavors inspire more people to reach out when others are in need, in Heaven’s immense love. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gratefully present the Shining World Compassion Award to DEPHER, plus US$10,000 in humble support of the free emergency plumbing services you provide, with gratitude and much love. May Heaven bless and protect you and your team.”
Coming up, demand for plant-based foods to soar 200% by 2025 in Asia Pacific. We’ll pause for a moment to enjoy Lakalaka, a Tongan group dance that includes sung speeches, and is a UNESCO-recognized Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. More comforting news coming up on Supreme Master Television. Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Healthy News for a Joyful World.
Asia Pacific region to increase plant-based meat consumption.
According to research, commissioned by Denmark-based DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences and conducted by IPSOS, a France-headquartered global market research firm, demand for plant-based meat alternatives is set to rise in China and Thailand by 200% over the next five years. While the Chinese government has committed to reducing meat consumption by 50% by 2030, other factors driving the transition include changes in consumer standards concerning taste, health and the environment. During this five-year period, the plant-based meat market is expected to increase by 25%, reaching US$1.7 billion across the Asia Pacific region. The study also found that 78% of consumers in the region believe that the consumption of plant-based products will continue to grow in the future. Thank you, DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences and IPSOS, for this encouraging research. In the wisdom of the Providence, may we soon see an even bigger shift towards the compassionate way of life.
Rehabilitated orangutans return to freedom.
Jacky, Beno, Puyol, Oscarina, and Isin were released into the rainforest in West Borneo, Indonesia, after being rehabilitated for years at an orangutan center in Ketapang, West Borneo. The three males and two females had been kidnapped from their forest homes as babies and kept as pets until they were rescued. Normally, orangutans stay with their mothers until they are seven to eight years old and thus learn survival skills. The release was a collaborative effort of the Bukit Baka Bukit Raya National Park, a Shining World Compassion Award recipient, Natural Resources Conservation Agency for West Kalimantan, a Shining World Compassion Award laureate, and a team from International Animal Rescue Indonesia, a Shining World Compassion Award recipient. The sweet orangutans will be further monitored to ensure their health and safety in their natural habitat. Our heartfelt gratitude, Bukit Baka Bukit Raya National Park, Natural Resources Conservation Agency for West Kalimantan, and International Animal Rescue Indonesia, for returning the lovely orangutan friends to their rightful home. All our love Jacky, Beno, Puyol, Oscarina, and Isin. Wishing you joyful days and serene nights as you thrive in your precious forest home, in Divine protection.
We all enjoy laughing, so let’s go now to our joke of the day called, “Turn of Events.”
Two girlfriends, Jasmine and Kathy, were having coffee together after an unexpected turn of events for Jasmine:
“So, what happened? You even said that you were going to marry Eddie. You said it was love at first sight.”
“It was... But it was the second and third sights that made me change my mind.”
And now we have a heartline from Elsa in Sweden:
Dear Beloved Master, Now that satan is locked away by Your benevolent grace, on my knees I thank You, beloved Master, a thousand songs of praise, a thousand thanks is not sufficient to begin to show appreciation for the magnitude of Your loving deeds for beings on this planet and in the Universe. I Love You, Master, thank You for all the blessing directly via Supreme Master TV and so much more... Thank you, the Supreme Master TV team. Your grateful disciple, Elsa from Sweden
Reverent Elsa, Master has a reply for you: “Tender-hearted Elsa, I Love you too and thank you for your expression of gratitude. While we may celebrate the incarceration of satan, we still have much work to do. Because humans have so much burden of karma, and the poisonous effect still lingers in their hearts. Together we must meditate and pray for a rapid transformation to a vegan world. Invite those in your circle to pray for World Vegan every Thursday and Sunday. May God grant you and the glorious Swedish people safety, wellness and good fortune.”
