A Brief Introduction to Australia Oriental Media Buddhist Charity Association
Australia Oriental Media Buddhist Charity Association (AOMB) was founded in May 2014. It has been registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) and is required by law to maintain a transparent, correct, and complete financial records.
AOMB is devoted to promoting Buddhism and traditional Chinese culture, helping to restore the peaceful state of mind for modern people, and improving their mental wellbeing. It achieves these objectives by reaching out to people suffering from mental illnesses, raising money for adults and children with disabilities, and organising charitable events to support disaster relief efforts around the world.
Its work is guided by the core values of kindness and compassion. It raises awareness of the importance of improving the welfare of the elderly and children, and reaches out to those disadvantaged and marginalized in our society. By engaging itself in charitable events and the spread of Buddhism, it aims to play its part in the peaceful development of the world.

In 2014 and 2015, AOMB has donated A$6000 to beyondblue—an Australian non-profit organisation aimed to raise awareness of mental disorders. AOMB and beyondblue also reached agreement to fundraise an initiative to raise awareness of anxiety and depression in Australia by organising several charity events.
Consistently Supporting Charitable Organisations
AOMB has been consistently supporting institutions such as the International Red Cross, the Australian Stroke Foundation, the Heart Foundation, Anti-Cancer Council, Vision Australia, and Lions Clubs International by making donations to the sum of more than tens of thousands of dollars.

In 2011, during the Brisbane floods in Australia it raised over A$10,000 to help those in the affected areas. It also organised a charity program aimed at helping poor students in Tibet, which raised over A$12,000 in 2013.
