Conveying Master’s Condolences upon President Fidel Ramos’ Passing.
With the passing of their beloved 12th President, His Excellency Fidel V. Ramos, the people of the Philippines are mourning the loss of a remarkable leader who ensured peace, stability and prosperity for his country. Among his many accomplishments while in office, His Excellency opened the nation’s doors to thousands of Aulacese, also known as Vietnamese, refugees in the 1990s, after being introduced to Supreme Master Ching Hai’s humanitarian efforts on their behalf.
“The Philippines was seen as the first as well as the last sanctuary of the Vietnamese refugees. And so those that could not find a new home outside, were allowed to stay in the Philippines and this was one of the, I'd say, most gratifying policies that we promulgated during my time as President.”
“For me, you are Mr. Ramos, my hero. You’re more than President.”
Sending Her loving prayers and sympathy, Supreme Master Ching Hai requested for our Association members to respectfully convey Her and our Association’s heartfelt condolences, with gifts and flowers. The following is a report from our Association members in the Philippines:
“After arranging for two wreaths of funeral flowers from Master to be delivered to the funeral site, we arrived on August 6 at 7 pm to the reception area. We had the opportunity to speak with Mrs. Celeste Madrigal, former secretary of the late President, who knows Master, as she was in Taiwan (Formosa) during the celebration when Master honored the late President with the Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion. Mrs. Madrigal said that the former First Family was not receiving visitors due to COVID-19 safety protocols, and as she herself was not authorized to receive any gifts, she called Mr. Cornelio Herbacio, a representative for the family, to have him deliver the sympathy card and tea gifts on our behalf. We shared with Mrs. Madrigal how thankful Supreme Master Ching Hai and our Association members are to President Fidel V. Ramos for helping the Aulacese (Vietnamese) refugees during their desperate time, and that Master and our Association will always be grateful and never forget His Excellency’s kindness. We also explained to Mr. Herbacio that the card contained a copy of the Supreme Master Television tribute video, and requested if he could let the family know. When we arrived, a funeral service was being held by the Armed Forces of The Philippines with a series of eulogies delivered to honor the late President. After it ended, we also paid our deepest respects and offered sincere prayers before the urn of His Excellency.”
We join in loving sympathy for the close ones and fellow citizens of His Excellency Fidel V. Ramos, the Magnanimous Father of the Philippines. May his soul rest peacefully in God’s eternal Light as his legacy on Earth of benevolent leadership lives on.
Japan supports Iraqis facing food insufficiency.
The government of Japan recently donated US$6.4 million to the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), to be used to assist up to 255,000 internally displaced Iraqis and 12,000 food-insecure individuals. They are being negatively impacted by rising food prices that have been escalated by the war in Ukraine. Iraq is also being dramatically affected by climate change, which is compounding food scarcity. Additionally, help is being given to those families that have returned home, with initiatives to assist them in rebuilding their livelihoods. Japan is a Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Generosity, and Animal Protection laureate. Thank you, Japan, for your gracious contribution and World Food Programme for your collaboration to ensure the funds are implemented quickly to achieve the maximum benefit. May Iraq’s dignified and resilient people quickly surmount these challenges and prosper, in Allah’s eternal Blessings.
More meat in UK contaminated with life-threatening salmonella.
In a joint investigation, United Kingdom-based nonprofit the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and the British newspaper the Guardian have found a rise in raw and processed meat of poultry-people contaminated with salmonella infantis, one of the most virulent of the over 2,500 types of salmonella bacteria. Moreover, animal-person feed, as well as the flesh of cow- and pig- individuals, have also tested positive for the pathogen. Alarmingly, some of the tests have indicated antibiotic-resistant infections of the bacteria’s “superbug” variants, which have been linked to large-scale food poisoning outbreaks. According to the World Health Organization, foodborne salmonella, which is one of four main global sources of diarrheal diseases, causes over 78 million cases of illness and over 59,000 deaths annually worldwide. Our gratitude for sharing these important, disturbing findings, the Bureau of Investigative Journalism and the Guardian. To prevent fatal zoonotic outbreaks, may humankind urgently embrace the safe and healthful vegan lifestyle, in Heaven’s protection. Don’t b vegan: cos health n virtuous living is not ur choice, right?
Up next, California enacts pioneering law in United States to reduce single-use plastics production. We’re just going to thank the health insurance claims processors, who are responsible for authorizing payments for services that are covered by insurance. We’ll return with more wonderful news here on Supreme Master Television.
Hallo, vibrant viewers, it’s Genti, a vegan duchess from the Gorilla kingdom! I’ve attained inner joyfulness by developing virtue and purity in my life. And definitely following the compassionate plant-based way is so essential! I have a health tip for you. Bed sores, otherwise known as pressure sores or ulcers, are a painful skin condition that result from pressure being applied for periods, even a few hours, to a part of the body such as heels, elbows, or hips. This is frequently experienced by elders who have mobility problems and those who spend an extended amount of time in one position. To treat it, you must relieve pressure from the affected region. Change the position your loved one is in every two hours at minimum. Utilize foam pads, seat doughnuts or pillows to support body parts that allow the pressure to distribute differently. Specialty mattresses — made from foam, air, or gel — are designed to treat pressure sores and serve to protect and cushion vulnerable skin. Always consult a healthcare professional for the most appropriate treatment plan. Thank you and love you so much for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants alike. And thanks for tuning in. Now, the weather around the world!
New California, USA, law introduces unprecedented restrictions on single-use plastics.
The Plastic Pollution Producer Responsibility Act requires that 30% of all types of plastic items sold in California are to be recyclable by 2028, and 65% by 2032. The act also mandates a 25% lessening in single-use plastic waste by 2032 and expanded polystyrene by 2025. Single-use plastics make up nearly half of all plastic pollution worldwide. Plastic waste causes tremendous environmental destruction. For example, the materials degrade into toxic particles and enter our waterways, thus causing harm to humans and marine animal-people’s health. California is a recipient of Shining World Leadership Awards for Environmental Protection, Compassion, Justice, and Good Governor, and a laureate of four Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, a Shining World Leadership Award for Protection, Shining World Super Loving Care Leadership Award, and two Shining World Leadership Awards for Loving Care. Great work, California, for implementing this important legislation to aid in the protection of our environment and all living beings. We pray that the governments around the world follow your example in helping to create a greener and cleaner planet, in Divine guidance.
Nigerian state initiates free healthcare service program for disadvantaged people.
The Honorable Mai Mala Buni, the governor of Yobe, has announced the introduction of a new expanded and revamped Free Healthcare Service program in the Nigerian state. The initiative aims to improve the accessibility and quality of healthcare services for vulnerable and underprivileged people. The governor also announced a personal donation of almost US$2,900 to enroll 100 disadvantaged individuals working in the informal sector in another state health insurance program for a year. In related developments, Nigeria enacted a universal health coverage law in May 2022 that will assist up to 83 million indigent persons in purchasing health insurance. Our hats off to you, the Honorable Mai Mala Buni and all state and national authorities involved, on your noble efforts to provide better medical care to your co-citizens. In Celestial comfort, may the soulful people of Nigeria be infinitely blessed with well-being and happiness.

Centenarian marathoner credits plant-fueled diet for achieving world records.
American vegan athlete Mike Fremont has set marathon time records for his single-year age group at 88 and 90, and recently celebrated his 100th birthday with a 10-kilometer run around Vero Beach, Florida. His vegan life started after he was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 69. However, Mr. Fremont chose to turn to a plant-based lifestyle instead of getting surgery for his condition. Through this wholesome diet, Mr. Fremont overcame cancer to his doctor’s surprise. In addition to running 8 kilometers three times a week, the robust man does other workouts such as solo kayaking and bodyweight exercises. In an interview, Mr. Fremont gave his secret to longevity, “No question in my mind, absolutely, it is diet that has determined my existence, my continued existence and my beautiful health.” Such a great spirit of passion, Mike Fremont! May your shining example of veganism inspire others to follow the plant-based lifestyle of well-being, in the delight of the Providence.
Ukrainian animal-person shelter rehomes furry residents.
Veterinarian Dr. Nataliya Mazur set up a temporary shelter in the southern area of Kyiv, which has been in operation since the end of May this year. From that time, it has housed 195-plus animal-individuals, and 160 of them have been reunited with their human companion or rehomed. Volunteers help by feeding the animal-folk and taking them for walks around the grassy pavilion. Soothing the sensitive feline- and canine-people, by spending quality time talking to them, is also very important after their traumatic experience of being in a war zone and becoming separated from or losing their caregivers. Many thanks, Dr. Nataliya Mazur and volunteers, for your care of our precious displaced animal friends. We pray that this shelter continues to be a beacon of Heaven’s loving light.
Let’s savor some cheerful giggles with the joke of the day. It’s called, “Cellphone number.”
I once asked my Grandpa why he wrote his cellphone number on the back of his phone. This is what he told me:
“Simple. So, if I misplace it, then someone can call that number and find me.”
And now we have a heartline from Ilse in Dusseldorf, Germany:
Dear Benevolent Master, Since Master often talks about the vegan lifestyle on Supreme Master Television, we passed out the Supreme Master Television and Alternative Living flyers. Currently, we are distributing the Supreme Master Television and Alternative Living flyers near the border of Poland. I was surprised that the percentage of Ukrainian people who received the flyers was very high, and the number of people viewing the leaflets was also very high. There was a Ukrainian lady who came to tell me that they received the flyers and she watched Supreme Master Television. Then her husband, son, daughter-in-law, and grandson, all watched Supreme Master Television, and she even took the flyers to distribute to others. I only humbly distribute the flyers to the Ukrainian refugees, and I feel like they are traveling all over the world so that people can learn from them, especially from President Zelenskyy. Thank You, Master, for regularly broadcasting the conferences to bless and enlighten us. Your disciple, Ilse from Dusseldorf, Germany
Focused Ilse, Thank you for telling us about your experiences while sharing the Supreme Master Television and Alternative Living flyers with Ukrainian refugees.
Master has this insightful message for you: “Enlightened Ilse, the Ukrainian people’s noble character, bravery, and faithfulness to their country and to each other is incredibly inspiring to the whole world. They have become a shining light for others to follow and I am glad that many of them are receiving the message about Supreme Master Television and informing others. God can use all situations to help the planet. The Ukrainian people are like a spark that hopefully will ignite the noble spirit of humans to awaken. As these refugees disperse throughout the world, they will have a positive effect on the countries they now live in. And after the war, I hope they return to Ukraine and help rebuild their country. May you and the industrious German people forever be uplifted by the Wisdom of the Divine.”
