Become a Patron for Melitopol Yatra for Jan, 2023
Now Accepting Donations for January 2023
The Melitopol Yatra needs help. Unfortunately, the hardest hit are the yatras under occupation. Deprived of the opportunity to earn money, devotees need the bare necessities of life.
Before the war, the Melitopol Yatra consisted of 80 devotees. But now, there are only half left. Here is what Omkarahari prabhu, one of the yatra leaders says:
Hare Krsna, dear devotees. Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada. My name is Omkarahari das, I am from Ukraine, the town of Melitopol. The town of Melitopol is located in the east of Ukraine, it is a small town which is called the Gates to the Crimea. Right now Melitopol is occupied by the Russian Federation.
Almost all enterprises are closed down. Everyone is jobless, prices for all the groceries are soaring, both for the most necessary ones and absolutely everything. Prices have increased by 3-4 times. However, we meet regularly, we hold Sunday feast programs, namahats. Our main project is Food for Life. This is the project that united the whole yatra. Local devotees gathered together around this project. This project is very much necessary not only for devotees who come, but also for those people who come to us. These are mostly elderly people who have no pension left, they have no social support. The situation is quite difficult for the devotees at present. And all the devotees lost their jobs, they have no social security payments…
USD 1,000 a month would significantly support this yatra. Personally or through the efforts of your community, you can take patronage over the Melitopol yatra.
