Jai Meher Baba!
Here is the link to the fundraiser: gf.me/u/zrhpsy
The outpouring of love and support for those who are suffering from COVID in India is overwhelming and awesome! So much has happened in the mere 10 days since the fundraiser was opened. Many thanks to all who have participated in this project. We will keep the funding open for some time, since the pandemic is still spreading.
I continually update the fundraiser description as things change, and also post updates about successes experienced by each team. (click on updates, and then click on “see older updates” in order to see all the progress being made). At the moment, there are three teams headed up by Baba lovers, working in Meherabad area and in Mumbai. I am currently researching others in other big cities so that we can personally support those who are directly helping others.
The Meherabad-based team called Meheram7 (the ones heavily involved in editing and uploading the unbelievable 30-hour virtual Amartithi program) have been throwing themselves into helping where they can. So far, although Government healthcare is free, the facilities are overwhelmed. Many are managing on their own, or the patients who can bear the charges pay directly for medical help. Many families have been affected by loss of work or the sudden loss of their wage earner and need help with the basic necessities of life – food, sanitizer, and some help finding available government and charitable resources.
Meher Oxygen Service is the second team we have been able to support. Headed up by a dynamic team of Mumbai-based Baba lover professionals, they have already received 50 oxygen cylinders and have organized volunteers who stand ready to deliver them to people’s homes as needed.
A third team is headed up by Meher Roshani Foundation, a charitable organization created by a powerhouse Baba lover. This foundation has been giving substantial aid to an economically-challenged community in Mumbai for the past year. This team is ramping up their Coronavirus-specific help thanks to our support! The latest addition to their services is a round-the-clock live Coronavirus Hotline that will provide up-to-date resources for those experiencing a medical emergency.
All three teams are headed by personally-known Baba lovers who have shown the greatest integrity in all their dealings.
Any assistance we can offer will be a great help. This fund is not supporting any specific medical facility, organization nor charity. It is focused on helping known Baba lovers who are helping their communities.
May we all find the bliss that is only possible through surrendering to His Will. Avatar Meher Baba ki Jai! x 7!
With warm love and prayers,
