We are delighted to report the success of the initiative taken by ISKCON Prayagraj to help the poor and orphans.
With the outbreak of COVID-19, the economy of the world has drastically declined. In under-developed areas like ours, orphans and needy people are put in difficulty, in a struggle for basic elements of life. As a part of our national project "Food for Life", our team at ISKCON India will be supporting the local orphanages in feeding the much needed nutritious food to orphanage kids and nearby villagers in the city of Varanasi, India.
Being a non-profit organization, the only source of revenue for the orphanage is the donations from local people. During this time of difficulty, the donations to the orphanage have drastically declined, thus putting the children, staff & the nearby villagers in urgent need of support.
The orphanage has 55 children, teachers & employees who are completely dependent on the orphanage for their food, shelter, clothing, and other needs. We also provided Hygiene kits & Bath kits to the children, teachers, and employees along with providing nutritious food to them.
Leading our team, our friend Suneel shares his experience "It was very heart touching for me meet the orphans, serve them. It also reminded me of how fortunate I am to have parents. I am also grateful to the caretakers here and supporters to help these children."
We are very thankful for all our generous donors and brave volunteers and local administration for their valuable support in this time of dire need when all needed you.
