2. Wat Santi land

In Jun 2015, news was received that the potential buyer of the land adjacent to the Wat Santi monastery in Johor, has an intention to convert the banana and durian plantation for chicken farming.  Due to its close proximity to the monastery, serious concerns were raised regarding the livestock being raised and killed next to the monastery, the  impact on the overall environment and also the potential impact on the health of the residents of the monastery. The monastery which had no prior plan of acquiring additional land had little choice but to purchase the adjacent land, for RM2 million. This was paid for using the monastery’s limited funds, donors, and a loan of RM800,000.

FFM agreed to help the Monastery raise funds to repay the loan, which was made in SGD. FFM raised S$40,000
