Michael and Thuy Fujimoto and Bennett Dorrance Jnr. have become the newest patrons of the Amida Trust. This important support and affirmation for the work of the Trust is great news for the new year. All three live on the Big Island of Hawaii and have known Dharmavidya and Prasada for many years. During that time they have been wonderfully supportive to the work of the Amida community. Thuy and Bennett are the co-founders of the New Moon Foundation, a philanthropic organisation which supports a wide variety of enterprises for the common good within a framework of engaged Buddhist principles.
