Our volunteers have been feeding the homeless in Costa Rica since 2007. The volunteers head into the La Carpio slum armed with 200 plates of delicious vegetarian soup, bread, juice and a dessert.
The volunteers purchase the food themselves and prepare the food by hand. They reach out to people struggling with alcohol- and drug addiction, who often tell them that not only have they not eaten all week, they don’t remember anyone showing them that much love and care.
The volunteers say they feel honored and blessed for being able to serve in this way. They also usually bring along student volunteers who come from more privileged backgrounds, in order to help them understand the value of giving and of reaching out to those in need.
Amma offers us the possibility to connect online with her on a daily basis. During these livestreams, we can meditate with Amma, chant bhajans (devotional singing) and hear spiritual teachings.
