Pitru Paksha 2021 – Annadaan (Food Donation) Updates – Day 4, 5 and 6
Under Mohanji’s guidance, Gurulight in association with Ammucare is performing annadaan (food donation), under the ACT4Hunger banner, at powerful spiritual power centers, during the auspicious period of Pitru Paksha..
The collective funds are being dispersed across all these locations and all the beings so that the donors derive maximum benefit.
Over the last three days, we arranged for meals for around ten thousand beings daily across India. It varies from 3 meals a day at Rishikesh, Haridwar to two meals a day in Varanasi to a single but wholesome square meal in Gangapur, Shirdi, various locations in Mumbai (Dadar, Mahim, Ushagaon, Ganeshpuri and Badlapur), Jammu, Tiruvannamalai.
In keeping with Mohanji’s philosophy of compassion beyond species, the feeding encompasses all – renunciates, needy/old/sick people, cows, dogs, monkeys, fishes, birds, etc. Our volunteers have also been serving animals at various animal shelters at Sanjay Gandhi Animal Centre, Delhi, Welfare for Animals (WAG) in Goa and locations frequented by these beings. This is a blessing for most of these beings who struggle to get even one proper meal a day.
Thanks to your generous support, we have expanded to support rations for the transgender community in Mumbai. We have also included feeding sweets and food for children across the various Mohanji ka Aangans (supplementary education and nutrition for schoolchildren) across India. Our enthusiastic volunteers trekked deep into the Nalla Malla forest ranges to reach forty tribal families residing near the Ishta Kamteshwari temple.
Our deepest and heartfelt gratitude to all our supporters and volunteers who are managing the food distribution selflessly and allowing us to keep our costs minimal and ensure that all our funds are disbursed to those that need them most. Their joy of serving these beings across species is incomparable.
