At the start of the war between Russia and Ukraine, volunteers with Amma’s centres in Europe in Poland, Hungary, and Romania helped hundreds of Indian students and other refugees reach safety. In Poland, they transported the refugees by bus to Warsaw, Poland’s capital, and connected Indian nationals with their embassy. Despite the harsh winter weather, our volunteers stayed at the border to provide clothing, shoes, food, blankets, and other basic needs. They also arranged accommodation for those who do not have shelter, shared information on next destination points, and provided references for medical and psychological support.
In addition, Embracing the World, Europe donated €115,000 ($127,000) to support ‘Safe Spaces for Women and Children’, a UN Women project for people affected by the war in different parts of Ukraine.
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.
