[note from Chakra: The Chakra editorial board is greatly saddened by the recent earthquake in Haiti and applaud all those devotees who want to help. However, we also want to note that disaster relief should be undertaken only by those who are trained to provide it. Untrained individuals, however well intentioned, can add to the confusion, cause additional problems on the ground and may put themselves and others at risk. Untrained individuals can be of greater help by contributing financially to an aid group of their choice]
I need to know if there are devotees in or nearby Haiti that are able to do prasadam distribution for survivors of the recent earthquake. Food for Life Global would like to financially support these efforts and our many donors are now asking us to do that. If you know of any prasadam distribution going on currently in Haiti, please contact our office. Or if you are reading this and know of competent people that can conduct prasadam distribution in Haiti, please contact our office with names, numbers of those people as well as the contact details of an official ISKCON GBC representative that can help to oversee a donation from Food for Life Global.
This matter is urgent.
Your servant in prasadam distribution!
