Extremely heavy rains led to floods in the mountainous state of Uttarakhand and caused major landslides. More than 5,000 people were declared dead and many of the surviving lost their homes. Embracing the World immediately held medical camps to treat the injured, especially for dysentery as this can easily become an epidemic.
In the long-term, we started a $7.5 million relief and rehabilitation project. Five hundred homes were built for people who had theirs washed away. We also established scholarships for poor children, provided pensions for widows and disabled people, built an orphanage and care home for children, and assisted women in forming self-help groups (SHGs) so they could set up home-based businesses.
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.
