We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all the Sri Lankans and other Buddhists in Uganda for their enormous support during this rains retreat (Vassa) period. The community is providing all requisites for the monks during this period. They have also continued to visit the temple every weekend and performing religious rites that have informed the local community of the Buddhist practices.
