Since its founding in 1999, Mercy For Animals has committed “to end the greatest cause of suffering on the planet, the exploitation of animals for food.” They believe the violence and discrimination against farm animals carry no less political and ethical weight than racism, slavery, and crimes against other human groups. Up to 2019, Mercy For Animals has launched more than 70 major investigations into cruelty cases within the animal farming industry, and guided several of the world’s largest food companies to adopt animal welfare policies. In the past two years, the organization’s efforts to change legislative and corporate animal welfare policies helped ease the pain of over 100 million animals and saved the lives of nearly 220,000. The suffering of farm animals exposed by Mercy For Animals has awakened the kindness in many people. Our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai greatly appreciates “their compassionate effort” and gratefully presents “US$20,000 to Mercy For Animals for their noble work, plus the Shining World Compassion Award, with all love and gratitude. May Heaven bless you and all involved with success and a long life of happiness.” “Dear Supreme Master Ching Hai, We are so grateful for your generous donation of US$20,000 on January 2, 2019. Your support fuels undercover investigations, legal victories, corporate commitments and social impact programs that create a kinder future for farmed animals. Because of you, 2018 was full of monumental successes at Mercy For Animals. You helped us release 8 undercover investigations exposing the deep horrors of commercial driftnet fishing, the plight of chicks and piglets born in factory farms and the suffering of mother pigs trapped in gestation crates. Mercy For Animals enters 2019 with stronger than ever plans to change the world for farmed animals with your support. Thank you for standing with us against cruelty and for compassion.”
