WSPA - Create a World Where Animal Welfare Matters

By Boston News Group, USA (Original in English)

On December 16, Golden Year 5 (2008), on behalf of Supreme Master Ching Hai, our Association members were honored to present the Shining World Compassion Award to the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA), an international non-profit organization that “seeks to build a united global animal welfare movement and to help create a world where animal welfare matters and animal cruelty ends.” Representing WSPA, Ms. Cecily West, Executive Director of the U.S. Office, accepted the Award letter signed by Master, the beautiful crystal Award plaque, a $5,000 check as well as many gifts including Master’s books, SOS flyers, DVDs and Supreme Master Television pens.

Ms. West expressed deep gratitude to Supreme Master Ching Hai and said that she and her staff were very surprised and excited to be given such a great award and contribution. Several of them had known of our Association through another event in Chicago a few years ago. They feel very honored to receive the Award and are inspired to carry on with their noble work, helping our animal friends.

May God continue to bless the WSPA staff and volunteers to fulfill their mission, and may all the animals soon live in peace, safety and happiness.
