METTACARE

OBJECTIVE:

To improve the welfare of the community through joyful giving and compassionate services.

  • The practice of generosity is to give what is worthwhile and to give it with non-attachment. This can be done in three main aspects:

     

    1. Giving things – whether material or non-material. Material giving includes possession, money, blood and organ donation, etc. Non-material giving includes sharing of skill and knowledge, time and attention.
    2. Giving of protection – to give our loving protection to those in fear: in fear of others, in fear of sickness and death as well as in fear of catastrophe.
    3. Giving of Truth – by sharing the Buddha’s Teachings (Dhamma), we help others to have the Right Understanding of the true nature of existence.

     

    “These are the five rewards of generosity: One is dear and appealing to people at large, one is admired by good people, one’s good name is spread about, one does not stray from the rightful duties of the householder, and with the break-up of the body at death, one reappears in a good destination, in the heavenly worlds.   (AN 5.35)

     

    KMBS MettaCare programs are community service and outreach activities that promote physical and mental health of the community as well as to provide aid to the less fortunate families.

METTA RICE

KMBS Metta Rice project is conducted on the 4th Sunday of every month, from 2 pm to 6 pm. Members and volunteers gather at Buddhist Maha Vihara (BMV) to prepare dinner for 300 street people.

BLOOD DONATION

Annual Blood Donation is jointly organized with National Blood Bank to replenish the blood supply for hospitals. Each unit you donate (about 1 pint) can be divided into the three primary components — red blood cells, plasma, and platelets — saving up to three lives.

 

The give of life through blood donation is an act of selfless giving as we do not know who will receive and yet each pint is life-saving to the recipient.

METTA EDUCARE

KMBS provides assistance to poor and needy students of the Puchong and Kang Valley communities. Besides school bag and stationary, each student receives a voucher which can be redeemed for school uniform and shoes.

METTA FAMILIES

KMBS adopts needy families who do not have stable income. Some are single parent, having chronic disease, physically or mentally handicapped. KMBS supports by giving monthly groceries and household items as and when needed. KMBS refer job opportunity and help them to start small business such as food catering so that they can be financially independent gradually. They are also assisted in applying for government aids.
