Due to Corona outbreak there is a ban on social gatherings and crowding, the temples have been shut.
Tiruvannamalai, a town in Tamil Nadu is home to the famous for the vast, ancient temple at the foot of the sacred Arunachala Hill. It’s an architectural wonder with intricately carved gopurams (towers) and mesmerizing details. This temple is famous for hindu pilgrimages especially at a time called Pournami which occurs once in every 30 days.
Pournami is the only time they would’ve gotten to eat a proper meal. Today, with a ban on gatherings and with social distancing as an important norm, they’re struggling to survive.
There are hundreds of Sadhus and poor people who live at the foot of this hill. These Sadhus were dependent on the devotees, visitors and the Annadanam for food. However, with the lockdown they have been struggling to survive.
Due to the fear of the pandemic, many charity organizations have stopped their work. There is an abundance of Sadhus, poor, needy,and homeless people who reside in Girivalam path, a 14km stretch that goes around the hill.
Satguru Charitable Trust has been generously working towards Annadanam (feeding drive) for the past 15 years. With the support of Volunteers, they were able to provide quality food to the poor and the marginalized communities since the lockdown was announced. Their work has been extraordinary as they were able to feed over 3000 people every day.
It has become a regular practice now for the Sadhus, poor and the homeless to receive food from a little Mini Van that travels the entire 14 km stretch.
Satguru Charitable Trust now needs your help. As the country descends into Lockdown 5.0, the need for groceries and essentials can’t be stressed enough. They need your help to continue their humble work in feeding the homeless, poor and the Sadhus.
You are their only hope. Donate food, save lives!
