Philanthropist Buddhist Monk Ven. Hui Li together with his Africa children Visit Chuang Yen Monastery at 10 am on July 26, 2014.
Master Hui Li, born in Taiwan, stepped foot in Africa in 1992 and witnessed the grief of AIDS on the helpless orphans left behind from its wake and the constant threat of disease and poverty on the majority of people. Stricken by the experience he vowed to give this life and after to heal and nurture the suffering in Africa using the Buddha Dharma. His first step was to build Nan Hua Temple; the first Mahayana Temple in South Africa and also the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. Then he founded the first Buddhist orphanage in Africa, Amitofo Care Centre in Malawi, and started to rear, educate and offer medical care to those in need as well as revive African culture. The well-rounded programmes and services ACC have are providing the orphans a safe and comfortable environment with sufficient opportunities to learn basic morality and insight through Buddhism and some life skills. This is the goal of ACC; to bring up orphans with a healthy mental, physical and spiritual disposition.
During his visit in America, he will be bringing 20 African orphanages to visit us. Welcome to join us.
