Last November & December, two million people were affected by flooding in Chennai due to unprecedented rains. Thousands of people were driven from their homes. The Isa Viswa Prajnana Trust reached out to our community to collect donations to send relief to the victims, and you came through!
We were able to provide food in the early days of the crisis, and now the Trust is providing palliative care to patients who were badly affected in the floods. Items like wheelchairs, beds, cots, medical supplies help terminally ill and bed-ridden patients be more comfortable at home with their families. Read more about the Public Program on April 3 organized with the Chennai Pain and Palliative Care.
Thank you to all the donors who have made this possible.
