CoVid-19 RELIEF APPEAL
How will we eat? This is the question on the lips of millions in India and Sri Lanka during this time of forced lockdown due to CoVid-19. Although it is difficult for us in Australia, for many in India and Sri Lanka it is a very different, difficult and tragic story.
Our team in India are thanking God for His provision and for keeping them safe during this time of testing. The farm is providing vegetables and grains, and some fruit. Currently there are 1100 + mouths being fed. College girls have returned home to Mukti so that adds many more residents to the main campus. They are helping tutor younger girls and assisting in the kitchen. PRMM has seen a very significant decline in local financial support as many of their supporters are themselves struggling through this time. So how can we help our Indian friends?
- We can pray. Pray for safety for the residents and staff & wisdom in decision making.
- We can give. Mukti’s general funds are down from local Indian support. Mukti is also supporting local villagers who are daily wage earners and rag pickers. No work, no money, no food.
Would you share with Mukti in India at this time?
150 vulnerable families benefit from tuition for their children and other health and nutrition needs during the year. All the families are daily wage earners – either common labourers, housemaids, shoe menders, tea pickers relying on money each day. No work, no money, no food. The children in these families are all in the Wings of Hope programs. The Wings team have responded with food rations to meet the immediate need.So how can we help our Sri Lankan friends?
- We can pray. Pray for the children and their parents, many of whom are single mums.
- We can give. Donate to our relief fund for Sri Lanka providing essential food parcels for these desperate families.
Would you share with Wings of Hope in Sri Lanka at this time?
Thanks to our amazing supporters, Mukti Australia was able to work alongside our Indian partner Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission, and our Sri Lankan partner Wings of Hope, to carry out some incredible development projects in 2018. Our projects focused on increasing our partners capacity to support and empower disadvantaged and vulnerable children and women, both now and well into the future. We're so looking forward to another year of partnership with the amazing folks at Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission in India and Wings of Hope in Sri Lanka. It is such a privilege to be part of this wonderful and life-changing ministry.
Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission’s land is a precious gift which is treasured for today and for the future. To prevent the land being encroached by squatters, and to protect the animals and crops the boundary needs to be walled for security.
Every day our wonderful House Mothers and their helpful carers look after the precious women and girls who live with a wide variety of special needs.
Homework is hard and if your family is illiterate, who is there to help? Wings of Hope’s team of teachers work with the children encouraging, supporting and teaching a group each afternoon. The results in these children’s lives is amazing!
Poor living conditions can make life unhealthy and very difficult. You can help a family in the tea plantations of Sri Lanka to have a healthier life through assisting with waterproof housing and sanitation facilities.
