April 2011 Update - Important
friends of Dhamma Aid Cambodia,
ceases, the other is born....
I am happy to announce that Dhamma Aid Cambodia is coming to a close
and this will be its last update. Not that the project is being
terminated, but it is reborn as a new project - "Dhamma Aid Asia
(DAA)". DAA commences where DAC ends. Before I explain further, I'd
like to thank all the supporters, donors and friends of DAC and trust
you will continue your meritorious friendship with DAA. All funds
in the dedicated account of DAC will be donated to DAA.
For the last several years, I have run DAC as a personal project with
assistance and support from friends and Buddhist organisations. But as
a personal project, it faced a number of limitations, foremost of which

severe challenges. It was felt that for us to assist these communities

the activities of DAC to a registered Society.
The Registrar of Societies officially registered us as the Persatuan
Perkembangan Ajaran Dhamma on 9 March 2011. The name was not our
choice but it is one we can work with. The sole activity of the
Society is to administer the Dhamma Aid Asia project or DAA.
Administered by a Committee, the main change will be to extend its
services to Buddhist communities across several Asian countries.
The Society and DAA is administered by a
Committee which comprises individuals with years of standing in our
local Buddhist community and who share the same ideals that first
So once again, Thank You for your past support. May you always
enjoy the Blessings of The Three Jewels..
peace in the
