Earlier this year on August 25th, Hurricane Dorian swept through the Bahamas devastating the small island country, killing more than 60 people, and leaving over 70,000 people homeless. The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) came to their relief in solidarity by providing grant support to organizations serving Hurricane Dorian victims. These grants, totaling $100,000 are providing food, water, medicine, psychosocial services, and medical care to those in desperate need.
Disaster relief is always an expensive necessity. The Prem Rawat Foundation’s financial support for World Central Kitchen and Americares has reached thousands in need of emergency assistance. These charities with extensive networks already established at the grassroots level were able to mobilize volunteers, goods, and services quickly and efficiently to meet pressing demands.
Since Prem Rawat founded The Prem Rawat Foundation in 2001, generous donors from around the world have come forward to contribute to the greater good of humanity. Through the compassionate benefactor support, the Foundation has been able to provide sustainable development, peace education, and disaster relief grants in more than 40 countries and growing.
Americares President and CEO, Michael J. Nyenhuis, said “We are grateful for the generosity of The Prem Rawat Foundation for helping Americares respond to Hurricane Dorian. Thank you for your commitment to helping respond quickly, and effectively, with an eye toward long-term health and wellness.” Prem Rawat's peacebuilding mission shines through practical action in TPRF's Peace Education and Food for People programs, both focused on addressing the basic human needs required for personal development, growth and fulfillment.
Prem Rawat and the TPRF Board of Directors appreciate the support of the altruists who know the importance of the cause of peace. "My heartfelt thanks to all of you who contributed to help people cope with this tragedy,” says Linda Pascotto, TPRF Board Chair. “Your support empowers The Prem Rawat Foundation to provide essential aid to people during their darkest hours.” To learn more visit The Prem Rawat Foundation website at www.tprf.org.
