Distressed Residents of Palwal Getting Support from Annamrita Foundation
Responding promptly to a distress call from the office of City Magistrate Dwiza Gathwal, the Annamrita Foundations mass meal kitchen, located in Omaxe City, immediately swung into action. Hot and nutritious meals were dispatched to the flood relief centers established at Government School Mustafabad, MVN Convent School Acheja, and Baghpur.
Narveer, one of the flood victims, expressed his profound gratitude with tears in his eyes, saying, “You are all angels sent by God. Thank you for all your help.” The piping hot cooked meals brought much-needed relief to the hungry and distressed victims, who had to leave their homes submerged in floodwaters.
City Magistrate Dwiza Gathwal lauded the Annamrita Foundations exceptional proactiveness and dedication in providing immediate assistance to those in need. Vice Chairman-North India, Dhananjaya Krishna Das, stated that the Foundation would continue serving the meals free of cost to the flood victims until the local administration advises otherwise.
“It is not just our duty, but it is the moral principles on which the Annamrita Foundation is built,” said Dhananjaya Krishna Das. “We will continue to bring solace to the distressed souls through highly tasty and nutritious meals. Disaster relief is our prime objective, and even beyond Faridabad, our services extend to Ukraine, where ISKCON is selflessly serving the tormented souls. Our endeavor is to quickly settle them and restore peace and happiness.”
The Annamrita Foundations swift response and unwavering commitment to assisting flood victims exemplify the organizations dedication to humanitarian causes, and it serves as a beacon of hope for those facing adversity in the region.
