Last Saturday, Vice President of Kechara House Henry Ooi together with the Kechara Care team organised a get-together for a group of volunteers at the Kechara Care Lounge. It was an event for Kechara staff to get to know the volunteers better, and to thank them for their constant support and effort.
As delicious food and drinks from Kechara Oasis was served, Henry started the party with a wonderful speech to thank the volunteers for their hard work. Henry shared more insights about Kechara World Peace Centre (KWPC), what inspired it and how we can work towards that goal.
Henry took the attendees all the way back to many years ago when he was in a group receiving a teaching from His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche. It was then that Rinpoche clearly described how KWPC would look like and how we could achieve. It was at that moment that the idea of a world peace centre manifested.
As Kechara has grown tremendously over the years, with 14 departments and new departments and divisions always manifesting, Henry also shared how committed staff and volunteers who understand this goal have made the growth possible. He shared many little interesting insights and stories from his personal experiences with Rinpoche and in Kechara; the audience was both engaged and inspired.
It was a heart-warming, sincere and motivational speech presented by Henry. Many asked questions after that, and Henry answered every question with much care and concern. The event thus gave volunteers a chance to have their questions answered, to clear their doubts and have a better understanding of the organisation’s direction.
It was a a wonderful get-together to inspire everyone with the same vision, which is to be part of the manifestation of KWPC, leaving a meaningful legacy for our children of tomorrow.
