Working Together to Respond to the COVID Crisis in India

Covid-19 continues to cause distress and poverty throughout India. Hospitals are under strain and many people are turned away and forced to pay for private healthcare. For many in our sangha finding the money for private healthcare isn’t possible.

Others in our Indian sangha remain well but are unable to work due to the latest lockdown restrictions. Often responsible for supporting more than one household, these Order members and Mitras are facing severe financial hardship.

FutureDharma and India Dhamma Trust are working closely with The Abhayaratna Trust and Karuna so that we can respond as effectively as possible. You can read more about how we’re working together here.

Our Ordination Teams in India are supported by gifts to India Dhamma Trust and Amrutsiddhi, India’s Movement Coordinator, is supported by your gifts to FutureDharma. Both Amrutsiddhi and members of our Ordination Teams continue to coordinate the work of the Emergency Relief Committee which for the last year has given food and support to people in need. Your gifts are also supporting our Youth workers in India who are reaching out to young people in these testing times.

Thank you for your continued support of members of our sangha in India and their work to reach out to people in our Buddhist community and beyond.
