Project Report Cure their Hunger

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, struggling for essential 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 donations from local people. During this time of difficulty, the contributions 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 entirely dependent on the orphanage for their food, shelter, clothing, and other needs.

Last quarter, the second wave of COVID-19 affected all very much, but we continued to support these children here. Again in the previous quarter, We provided the "Happiness Kit" to each child here along with teachers and employees. The Kit consists of 3 Kgs of grains, two shampoos of 250ml, Shops, and sanitizers. We are also providing nutritious food to them regularly.

Along with our support to the orphanage this time, we went the extra mile. We started an initiative to teach poor children in slums and villages.

Due to COVID-19, schools are closed for more than a year, and children are bereft of their studies and forgetting their lessons learned. We went, connected, provided them stationaries, and taught poor children of nearby slums and villages. We taught 60+ new children last quarter.

Leading our team, our friend Madhur shares his experience "It was a great experience for me to meet the orphans and the poor and serve them. Children were enthusiastic about learning, and they have good potential. The parents were pleased to see their children study."

We are very thankful for all our generous donors, brave volunteers, and local administration for their valuable support when all needed you in this time of dire need.

At Last, we request you to visit and share our other initiatives with your family and friends. It helps us reach more people and grow.
