Mexico Earthquake Relief Appeal

The 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which struck Mexico on September 19, was the deadliest to hit the nation in more than three decades. The seismic event has resulted in over 300+ deaths, hundreds of collapsed buildings and scores of people missing. Multiple tremors have followed since, with many trapped on the same street as where our office used to be. Thousands have lost everything.

 

The rescue effort has been powered by the support of volunteers from the International Association for Human Values (IAHV) in partnership with Art of Living Foundation (AOLF) showing up spontaneously to offer help in every way that they can.

 

Our teams are conducting trauma relief sessions with the affected and with the emergency response teams. Volunteers are joining forces to move boulders and rocks to help rescue those still trapped under the rubble. Volunteers are also offering water and food for the rescue forces.

 

Outside the Mexico city at least 200 cities across 5 different states are in the same situation. A team of volunteers are going to Oaxaca, one of the places, impacted by the first earthquake. The second team will go to Puebla, a state with 114 cities struck by the seismic jolt.

Resources of IAHV and AOL Mexico are stretched thin. Your generosity will provide immediate relief to survivors: food, shelter, water, and medicine. It will also support longer-term assistance to help survivors recover from the consequences of this disaster.

Emergency Appeal for Support towards India Flood Relief

Dear Friend,

Torrential monsoon rains have caused massive flooding and landslides in northern India and Nepal, affecting millions of people. Tens of thousands have been displaced, people are reported to have lost their lives and hundreds are still missing.

The Art of Living Foundation is responding to this situation. Over the past weeks, thousands of volunteers were deployed in relief work across the states of Assam, Bihar, Gujarat, West Bengal in India and in Nepal. They have been distributing food, water, essential supplies and providing shelter to people in the hardest-hit districts. Psychosocial support is also being offered through  trauma relief camps for those severely affected.

In Gujarat, India, 15 truckloads of relief material worth INR 10,000,000 have been dispatched. Relief goods consisted of food grains, groceries, water, clothes, blankets and generic medicines. Similarly, in Assam and West Bengal, India, and Nepal, several trucks filled with relief supplies were distributed by volunteers.

With your support, The Art of Living Foundation is working relentlessly to help alleviate the suffering of those severely affected. At times of crisis, collective resolution can go a long way to help those who need it most. Your support can offer the gift of life to the most marginalized and vulnerable sections of the population.

Your donation can mean the difference between life and death for people caught in the aftermath of this natural disaster. Your financial support would go towards offering food, clean water, hygiene & shelter kit, medical aid and help rehabilitate flood-affected survivors.

We thank you for your generosity.

Warm regards,

IAHV Team in partnership with The Art of Living Foundation
