Earthquake Relief

News Update: 20 January 2010
 

Br. Dayamrita Chaitanya and his team have returned from Haiti. They have accessed the situation there and will be making plans on how MA Center can effectively continue to provide immediate and long-term relief to the people of Haiti.

What we learned is that during a crisis like this, the best way to help is through financial donations.  The reason for that is it allows those funds to be used in the local economy and in that way boost the sustainability of the local communities.

Haiti Relief Efforts

15 January 2010


In response to the deepening crisis in earthquake-ravaged Haiti, Amma announced a plan to provide relief there.

Simultaneously, Amma has directed Br. Dayamrita Chaitanya to travel to Haiti with a small team of medical advisors to assess conditions on the ground. Br. Dayamrita’s team will explore avenues for Embracing the World to make a meaningful long-term contribution to the recovery effort.

In Amritapuri, Amma led several thousand people in a prayer for the peace of the departed souls, for those who have suffered injuries and devastating material losses, and for the mental strength and peace of mind of those who have lost their loved ones.

Amma’s charities worldwide are now known collectively as Embracing the World. In the United States, Embracing the World projects are managed by M.A. Center, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization based in San Ramon, California. Embracing the World’s contributions to the Haiti Relief effort will also be managed by M.A. Center.
