Entrance #5

The Trust is urgently seeking financial support with their purchase of a residence in Queenwood, Hamilton. We have paid the deposit with settlement 30 November. 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.

We are very grateful for any donation received. We are, now slowly reaching our target of $65,000, through so many generous gifts. We will be finalising the sale agreement on 30th November.  The generosity shown is heart warming, the Trust believes we are doing something wonderful and as such with the support shown, we are all doing it. Thank you everyone.

We will be needing items when we open the door, many people have offered many gifts, we are keeping track of these. Should you have anything specific you think we would need please email the Trust.
