On April 8th, Cyclone Harold devastated the country of Fiji, overwhelming the medical system especially given the ongoing COVID-19 response.
The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) made a $30,000 grant to Save the Children Fiji where the funds will go toward health care, medical supplies, clean water and educational resources. The small Pacific Island nation is in great need after damages caused by the storm.
The Prem Rawat Foundation originally announced a $25,000 grant but was able to increase the amount to $30,000 thanks to numerous generous donors.
“A big ‘thank you’ to each one of you who contribute to TPRF, making it possible to help people who are facing this terrible crisis,” says Linda Pascotto, TPRF Board Chair.
“As so many people globally are dealing with hardships, your support is playing a critical role in helping to meet their essential needs and maintain hope.”
This grant is a part of a larger disaster and COVID-19 relief response by TPRF to provide $300,000 in grants with partners for relief and medical care in Italy, France, Spain, South Africa, Ecuador, Mexico the U.S. and other countries.
“There is a lot to be said about the power of the people, about the motivation that people have to move forward and to try to make a difference,” says Prem Rawat. “This is the time for empathy, clear thinking and courage.”
