The Trust is seeking financial support to help in the purchase of a suitable residence in Hamilton. We are finding we are consistently $100,000 short with our offers or at auction. We have currently a $100,000 donation from Singapore and a $800,000 promissory note from within Aotearoa/New Zealand.
We will also need contributions for the future running of the residence, food, robes, and medical expenses for female monastics who are totally dependent on the lay community for their physical support.
