OUR RELIEF PROJECTS
The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact in India. Rated as the second highest country for infections globally, millions of people have suffered during recent months. Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission (PRMM) felt a responsibility not only to keep the large Mukti community safe but to also respond to the challenges which confronted them right on their own doorstep. PRMM continues to offer relief to many in the local community and nearby villages who are desperately feeling the effects of food shortages and medical supplies.
The year 2020 has brought an unprecedented pandemic across the world, and Sri Lanka has been affected with many families out of work. If there is no work for the day, there is no food on the table that evening, and families and children are going without daily nourishment and basic food.
Through the generosity of Australian donors, not only have the families linked to Wings of Hope been provided with basic necessities, but many other families living in dire conditions as well.
The monsoon season often brings with it flooding, landslides and distress for communities high in the tea estates of Sri Lanka. Flooding also occurs in the low lying areas of Colombo bringing disaster to these slum communities. Wings of Hope has been able to provide some relief each time this occurs with food parcels and other basic necessities of life. Families are so grateful for this assistance in their time of need.
Who we are
In Sanskrit, the word ‘mukti’ means freedom, liberation and salvation.
The name ‘mukti’ reflects the origins of our work which began in India over a century ago. Today, we partner with organisations in both India and Sri Lanka to empower disadvantaged children and women.
Mukti Australia is a Christian organisation seeking to change lives through a range of development initiatives that demonstrate, in a practical way, the love of Jesus Christ.
