It Takes a Village!
Posted April 29, 2006
Since 2001, Vaisnavas C.A.R.E. has served the hospice needs of terminally ill devotees and their families around the world by providing personal assistance, hands-on training, educational seminars, and financial resources. Having received the blessings of ISKCONís Governing Body of Commissioners (GBC) in 2002, we continue to expand our worldwide network of volunteers to assist wherever there is a need. His Holiness Bhakti Tirtha Swami, having been a great visionary for the expansion of Srila Prabhupadaís movement, enthusiastically joined our Vaisnavas C.A.R.E. Board of Directors and guided its mission throughout the remainder of his days. We continue to serve the Vaisnavas in this way.
Presently, Vaisnavas C.A.R.E. is receiving an increase in requests from devotees with long-term, chronic illnesses. However, their needs differ from those requiring shorter-term, end-of-life hospice care. We are making every endeavor to assist them with practical arrangements for their care by providing sincere, devotee caregivers wherever possible. In addition, there is a great need to assist the patientís families with the financial expenses that accompany a long-term illness. Obviously, meeting the many needs of our worldwide Vaisnava community requires all of us.
We are asking you to assist a terminally ill or chronically ill Vaisnava by making a small monthly, tax-deductible donation to Vaisnavas C.A.R.E. We are simply begging on behalf of Srila Prabhupada.
Visit our website at www.vaisnavascare.com. Become more aware and involved in the ever-expanding needs of our Vaisnava society. One devotee can make a difference. Together we can make a change!

Yours in service to Srila Prabhupada,
