We are Back! Dana - Teens & Youth 1st Dhamma in Action Activity 2022, 

On 26 June 2022, teachers and students from the BISDS Teens and Youth classes joined hands for the first Dhamma in Action Activity after a long absence due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A total of 19 participants signed up to prepare 100 lunch packs and requisites for Charis Sheep Pen Shelter, Myanmar Refugees Children Home and Trinity Children Home.

The activity provides a platform for BISDS students to be directly involved in preparing food and requisites for the homes as well as an opportunity for BISDS staff, students and parents (BISDS Family) to participate as donors. The activity started with a  donation drive within the BISDS Family. With the support from the BISDS Family, the Donation Team collected cash RM3,226 excluding in kind.

 Finally, the most awaited day has come. In the Big Kitchen, the students though overwhelmed with preparing 100 lunch packs, were able to complete the mission with the guidance of our F&B Team. 

 In the Puja Hall, the students after packing the requisites were seen designing cards for the homes.  Their message to the homes was “WE CARE”. Truly, we CARE from the HEART.

 It was not all work and no play!  Later part of the day, as part of the mindfulness training, all the participants explored the balancing activity-Yoga Balancing. We were all challenged to remain balanced and flexible in our pose. A big thanks to Sis Kathy for the guided Yoga session.

Spending our Sunday for a good cause is so worthwhile.
