In South India, among those most affected by the pandemic are the daily wagers. They have lost their jobs and are facing immense difficulty in surviving without transportation, food and medicines during the current lockdown. Most daily wagers make only $8 per day when they are working.
Ayang Rinpoche is initiating a charity program to distribute food to these poorest families. In this way, the monastery and Drikung Charitable Society can make sure the daily wagers receive necessities directly into their hands.
If you, or any of Rinpoche's students and their friends and families, would like to join in this food distribution initiative, you are welcome to donate either through the world-wide Amitabha Foundations or directly to the monastery's account. They would appreciate receiving the funds by May 3.
Here is a link to make your US tax-deductible offering online through the Amitabha Foundation US. You may make a one-time or recurring gift of any amount, or at one of the suggested levels:
$24 for 3 day's wages
$56 for one week's wages
$240 for one month's wages
Rinpoche welcomes you to include names for dedication. Please see the field in the payment link to include your names.
May all beings benefit by our generosity!
For Ayang Rinpoche and everyone at Amitabha Foundation USA
