At 7 a.m of the next dawn,  being instructed by\r\nJunior Ven. Thich Tam Thuan, the group was divided into three small groups. The\r\nfirst came to Tam Hung Elementary School with over 320 portions of gifts; the\r\nsecond to Ham Liem commune Peoples committee with over 360 portions; the third\r\nto the Peoples Committee of Ma Lam village town with only 75 pupils. How\r\npitiful they were but we could not express our feeling. All of them were in\r\ninnate disability. Apart from their presents, they received an extra envelope\r\nof 50.000 VND for each. Although this amount of money is just little, it stored\r\nall sincere hearts of mercy, compassion, joy, detachment of\r\nthe Buddhism, as the proverbs “intact leaves covering broken\r\nones”, â€œgourds must love pumpkins”, which means that we should together\r\nestablish the love for human relationship. In anywhere to stay, in any\r\ncondition to suffer, we have to care about the love of humanbeings, which is\r\nproudly from many former generations.

Although they were little gifts on occasion of Mid – Autumn\r\nfestival impossible to compare with their miserable, difficult situations, they\r\nwere from deeply hearts of the charitable members and benefactors everywhere,\r\nwho supported the festival, helped a coming new school year. In spontaneous and\r\nbright ages, their smiling mouths as fresh flowers, embracing the\r\npresents, they one another showed them excitingly in how holiness was in their\r\nlook and laughter!

\r\n\r\n

The trip returned in HCMC at 7 PM, finishing its perfect\r\nmission in fully religious meaning. (The total of 1800 portions valued of\r\n108.000.000 VND).
