Share Your Care Newletter – 18 August 2023
Dear friends, please let us report on the service Share Your Care Foundation has done for the last six months.
From February to July this year, the Foundation provided 581 individual aid payments.
Here are examples of individual applications for support:
Hare Krishna, dear Vaishnavas! Recently we have just left the war zone where our whole family lived. Because of the health condition, my husband can’t work and I can’t find a job: I am an accountant, but here nothing works at all. There is no economic development…
(Marina m., 60 years old)
I work in a canteen, distributing food, and my salary is small. My children and my mother need financial help to at least buy fruit and vegetables because all the money is spent on rent… the pension and salary only cover the rent…. My children and I are afraid to go back to Kramatorsk under shelling to our home. I can’t subject them to such a danger.
(Lilamrita d.d., 41 years old)
Hare Krishna. Please accept my obeisances. I am a pensioner, my pension is small, and prices for food, medicines, utilities are constantly rising. I started having problems with my joints, and I need a lot of money for treatment, which I do not have enough. I thank you in advance for your help and support.
(Shri Pati d., 72 years old)
Relevant individual requests:
In addition to individual payments, the Foundation used the donations collected monthly to support two Vaishnava centers where displaced devotees live, a total of 60 people.
Among the major projects, we would like to highlight that the installation of power generating and storage stations for 12 temples has been completed. Worship and preaching continue in these temples regardless of whether the centralized infrastructure is operational!
However, the greatest blessing for the devotees in Ukraine over the past three months has been the fact that ISKCON leaders have come to visit. HH Niranjana Swami, HH Trivikrama Swami, HH Bhakti Caitanya Swami, HH Dhirasanta das Goswami, Radhanatha Swami, HH Bhakti Vigynana Goswami and HH Bhakti Raghava Swami visited Ukraine.
The devotees in Ukraine are humbled by the difficulties these elevated Vaishnavas have to undergo to come to Ukraine and are grateful to them for their compassion and mercy, kind hearts, prayers and blessings.
