Dear Venerable Monks, and Monks and Nuns, 
Ladies and gentlemen in all associations, 
Dear fellow Buddhists, 
According to the Office of Committee for Natural Disaster Prevention, due to the strong influence of tropical depressions in the North East Sea, the storm has become a storm in 2020 and the international name is NangKa. On October 12 and 13, there would be very heavy rain in the Central region, with a total rainfall of 200-400mm in Quang Tri and Thua Thien Hue provinces, over 500mm in some places, Quang Binh province, and Da. Nang from 100 - 200mm. 
Storm No. 7 with heavy rains caused floods in 9 provinces and cities in the Central region - as of October 12, floods made hundreds of people dead, hundreds of thousands of houses, schools, Buddhict temples and churches submerged in the floods in the 9 central provinces of Vietnam from Quang Binh, Quang Tri, Thua Thien Hue, Quang Nam, Da Nang, Quang Ngai, Gia Lai, Dak Lak, Lam Dong, etc. 
All districts, towns, and cities of Thua Thien Hue province are flooded with water depths from 0.8m to 3m,  many places in the districts of Phong Dien, Quang Dien, Phu Vang, Phu Loc, Huong Tra town, Hue city were deeply flooded. 
The 19 covid pandemics affected over the world affecting over 200 countries, 40 million people affected, killed over 1 million people, Vietnamese people in the countries around the world Europe and America , Australia , Canada  are very fortunate that the Vietnamese in these places have received the help of host countries, but people in Viêt Nam who do not have financial support in the pandemic now add to the flood disaster. 
Therefore, the situation of people in the Central region of Viet Nam has become more and more miserable that we cannot describe in any way. 
With this situation, President  Venerable Thich Thien Tam and  Vice President Venerable Thich Phuoc Tan of The United Vietnamese Buddhist Congregation in Australia and New Zealand launched emergency relief during this period and They called on all Vietnamese compatriots and Buddhists to join hands to help poor people in their homeland to follow the word of Compassion of the Buddha. 
In Vietnam, we have a saying:
 Gourd love to take the same pumpkin, although it is different but the same platform. 
Precious things cover the mirror that people in a country have to love each other. 
When a horse gets sick, the herd do not eat grass. 
In this isolated situation of Pandemic, please send your money  to the temples and monasteries, or bank book: 
Name: UVBC in AUST-NZ 
BSB: 083437. 
Account number; 730138124. 
After that, the Teachers will send all money the Vietnamese side to help the person in person. 
Please pray together for all the Dharma monks and nuns to contemptuously good spirit, excellent wisdom, the good health, and the Buddha's enlightenment, 
May all fellow Buddhists enjoy the blessings of the pandemic season under the aura of the Buddhas'brilliants 
Thank you all.
