The Buddhist humanitarian relief organization Join Together Society Korea (JTS Korea), founded by the renowned Korean Seon (Zen) monk Venerable Pomnyun Sunim, working in cooperation with the Preah Sihanouk Raja Buddhist University, Battambang Branch (SBUBB), has reported the successful distribution of emergency relief supplies in Cambodia’s Battambang Province in the wake of last year’s devastating floods.
In late 2020, the worst flooding in a decade inundated large areas of Cambodia, already reeling from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Between October and November, Cambodia was hit by 13 consecutive tropical storms, leading to widespread flash floods that deluged communities, causing landslides, unearthing mines and other unexploded war ordnance, and damaging or destroying farmland and infrastructure.

The International Network of Engaged Buddhists (INEB), in cooperation with the Buddhist humanitarian relief organization Join Together Society Korea (JTS Korea), has announced the launch of the Female Sangha Initiative For Social Transformation in Southeast Asia, with a call for grant applications from sanghas, groups, and organizations across Buddhist traditions in Southeast Asia.
Coordinated by INEB and funded by JTS Korea, the Female Sangha Initiative For Social Transformation in Southeast Asia aims to offer an avenue for addressing social inequities facing female practitioners in Buddhist communities across the region, and to empower women as leaders and agents of social change and transformation. Under the scheme, funding will be provided to projects and organizations that aim to remedy education shortfalls, structural oppression, materialism, and gender discrimination within lay and monastic communities.

The Buddhist humanitarian relief organization Join Together Society Korea (JTS Korea), founded by the renowned Korean Seon (Zen) monk Venerable Pomnyun Sunim, is spreading the warmth of compassion through a US$10,000 project to distribute coal briquettes to vulnerable households across South Korea as the country settles into another cold winter season, when temperatures can sometimes drop as low as –20ºC.
As recently as 30 years ago, lignite coal briquettes were the main fuel for heating and cooking in Korean households, and are still relied upon by some impoverished communities. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, donations of briquettes for underprivileged families nationwide have dropped to a third of levels recorded a year earlier.

The Buddhist humanitarian relief organization Join Together Society Korea (JTS Korea), founded by the renowned Korean Seon (Zen) monk Venerable Pomnyun Sunim, working in cooperation with the International Network of Engaged Buddhists (INEB), has distributed US$50,000 in COVID-19 emergency relief aid to vulnerable and hard-hit communities in South and Southeast Asia.
“Most developed nations have taken huge economic hits as a result of the pandemic, while developing nations have experienced serious economic devastation that has led to the collapse of basic social services,” JTS Korea told Buddhistdoor Global. “In response, JTS Korea donated US$50,000 to INEB, which has been distributed to 12 aid agencies in Bangladesh, India, Myanmar, and Nepal—four countries that have been especially impacted by the pandemic—to purchase food and hygiene supplies for 4,434 families, or 23,140 people living in 94 regions.
