Solidarietà dal campo

Nei giorni dell’emergenza COVID-19 abbiamo ricevuto diverse testimonianze di solidarietà “al contrario” che arriva dai bambini, presidi e insegnanti delle scuole del nostro progetto di sostegno a distanza, dai membri dello staff di ASIA Nepal, dai partner con cui abbiamo lavorato negli anni.

“Carissimi, vi pensiamo in questi giorni. Siamo molto preoccupati per voi e vi ringraziamo per continuare a lavorare per noi nonostante la difficile situazione nel vostro paese. Per favore state a casa. Qui stiamo pregando per la salute vostra, dei sostenitori e di tutti gli italiani. Crediamo nei miracoli, il primo è che in Nepal, che confina con la Cina, il virus non si è diffuso. Per favore, restate a casa e state al sicuro”.

“Saluti! Spero che questa mail vi trovi bene. È davvero triste sapere della diffusione del Coronavirus in Italia e della perdita di così tante vite. Il personale e i bambini del THF pregano per il benessere di tutte le persone in Italia, che le divinità ci proteggano tutti!
Tutti dovremmo prendere misure precauzionali per proteggerci ed è nostra convinzione che recitare il seguente mantra di Tara Verde ci proteggerà dal virus.
“OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA”

EXPRESSION OF SOLIDARITY WITH ASIA ONLUS AND THE PEOPLE OF ITALY 

Dear Sir/Madam,
We watched with mounting concern that turned into unmitigated shock and horror as we witnessed the devastation visited upon your beautiful country by the almost demonic menace of COVID-19. As the human toll mounted, as the social and economic fabric of Italy was pulled to the point of being riven asunder our thoughts and our prayers are with you.
You who never forgot us in our hour of need 15 years ago when a speedier but similar tragedy hit us in the form of a wave. While we are a less economically privileged country and our organization is a not-for-profit with very limited physical resource and our ability to contribute either in cash or in kind is non-existent, dear friends, we know, without a doubt, that you are a strong nation with a population with large hearts and great compassion that will, with the infinite grace that God showers upon the generous, overcome this as you have done many times over the history of the world. In that historic effort, the Green Movement of Sri Lanka, its entire network and all of the families that you helped along our coastal belt so many years ago stand by you, stand with you.
May God speed your efforts,

Sincerely yours,

Suranjan Kodithuwakku
Chairman/ Chief Executive Officer

ཀ་དག་གདོད་མའི་དབྱིངས་ལས་མགོན་པོ་དགོངས། །
མགོན་པོ་བེེཌཱུརྱའི་རྒྱལ་པོ་ལྷག་པར་དགོངས།།
བདག་སོགས་ལས་ངན་འཁོར་བའི་སེམས་ཅན་རྣམས། །
འཕྲལ་རྐྱེན་ནད་ཡམས་སྡུག་པོས་འཇིགས་པ་ན། །
མགོན་པོའི་ཐུགས་རྗེ་ལྷག་པར་དུས་ལ་འབབ། །

ཁྱེད་ཀྱི་ཐུགས་རྗེ་འོད་ཀྱིས་དོན་སྨིན་པས། །
སྨན་མཁས་སྨན་ལ་རང་དབང་བརྩན་པར་ཤོག། །
གསོ་བ་མཁས་པའི་རྣམ་དཔྱོད་རབ་འཕེལ་ནས། །
ཡམས་ནད་ཞི་བའི་སྨན་བཅོས་བརྩན་པོ་ཞིག། །
མུན་སེལ་ཉི་མའི་འོད་དུ་མྱུར་ཤར་ཤོག།། །།

As the COVID-19 pandemic sweeps across the humanity spreading suffering across the globe. Small society of Sumtrhang Monastery and its religious organisation Bhutan Nyo Foundation in association with ASIA onlus, extends our sincere prayers to all those who are infected by the virus, and those who fear of being infected. May we find a cure at the earliest as best of worlds medical brains work day and night for the cause.

Our sincere gratitude goes to all the heroes and and frontline personals fighting the pandemic in a form of health workers, volunteers and officials on duty, trying their best to keep everyone at comfort and safe in their societies.

At this point of time, our hearts goes to our ITALIANS AND FRIENDS IN EUROPE who are hit the most by this pandemic. Yet we find comfort in seeing you fight with confidence, vigour and determination together in arm to arm as a nation and people. Same goes to rest of the countries that are badly hit by the pandemics across the globe. We hope that this pandemic pacifies soon and may our world reclaim peace and an unprecedented peace in fact as we learn many lessons from this woes, the essence being to harm less and to cultivate as far as we can the benevolence, to practice good in all our actions.

At home, we rejoice in the efforts put together by our government, other non-government and private agencies together in solidarity under the great leadership of our beloved King, His Majesty the king to keep our country safe from the pandemic. We also join the nation to thank our frontline health workers and others who are seen putting rest ahead in place of their selves .

Let’s keep safe and be safe for self and the others.
