Lingyen Mountain Temple (Canada) raised funds during the temple's Bathing the Buddha Ceremony and Charity Bazaar on May 12 and donated $43,000 towards Richmond Hospital Foundation for Richmond Hospital's Birth Centre.

"Health care is a universal need," says Venerable Master Tze Cheng, the Abbot of Lingyen Mountain Temple (Canada). "In celebration of Buddha's birthday and Mothers' Day, we decided to support women's health this year. We want to lend our compassion to help improve health care for women and the new lives being born in Richmond. We are pleased to donate partial proceeds from our Bathing the Buddha Ceremony and Lingyen Charity Bazaar to help fund two important pieces of equipment for Richmond Hospital's Birth Centre."

Lingyen Mountain Temple (Canada) has been supporting Richmond Hospital Foundation since 2008; they have donated towards the Medical Imaging Centre Campaign for the future Yurkovich Family Pavilion, contributed towards the COVID-19 Response Fund, and helped purchase a new gastroscope for the Gastroenterology Department at Richmond Hospital.

"We are grateful to have Lingyen Mountain Temple (Canada)'s ongoing support," shares Spencer Gall, campaign director of Richmond Hospital Foundation. "This donation will directly enhance the quality of care and support provided to newborns and their mothers. We wish to express our sincerest gratitude for Lingyen Mountain Temple (Canada)'s compassion and big heart towards the people in Richmond and for improving health care services at Richmond Hospital."

The donation will be used to purchase an infant bedside monitor and an incubator for the Richmond Hospital Birth Centre. A bedside monitor observes vitals and conducts cardiac screening tests for newborns, while an incubator regulates the temperature of newborns when ongoing thermal regulation is required.
