Bread For The Hungry

Hello there to everyone, friends and Family around the world. Im currently in West Bengal India and have been here for the past three months. I came to Ananda Nagar situated in the Purulia district eight hours north west of kolkata to deepen my spiritual Yog8ic practice with Ananda Marga and to get involved in projects that would benefit the local communities.
So I have ended up here for longer than I expected due to restrictions unable to travel and this has given me a great opportunity to help out here as best i can. This is said to be the poorest area of India and people struggle to get food and clothing here at the best of times so during this strict lockdown the local village people are really struggling to feed there familys!

Im currently based at the Ananda Nagar farmhouse and decided to build a traditional clay oven one month ago to help support the farm which does fantastic work in so many areas providing food and clothing for local villagers in these tough times. The People here dont have ovens so there was a huge excitement about the bread coming and so I decided to fire it up today on my birthday. Recieved well by all 
So creating this fundraiser is to keep the bread flow going, create an income so the farm can function more efficiently to distribute food to village peoples in this chrisis. The cow shed is being extended and needs a roof.  Planting more fruit trees and a program to educate the village people in how to plant and maintain so they can support themselfs. The plant nursey got destroyed in recent storm and needs rebuilt.

Please give generously as this fundraiser will help support the people and future of this area.
Namaskar🙏

Hello all,

Writing again to say a big thanks with your brilliant support for bread for the hungry. We have raised a total of $5099 AUD supporting local villages around Ananda Nagar West Bengal.
Your donations have helped many families during this time with lockdown and restrictions.
This lower economic region has been greatly affected and your help has made a change here not only at the present but moving ahead planting for the future!
Many different projects have been serviced in the last few weeks starting with the distribution of food to local villages, giving rice seeds and bread to 110 backward farmers. Purchased 500 fruit trees off different varieties and coordinated education workshops with villagers on how to plant and maintain these trees.
Had ten boys come to the farmhouse for a few days learning them how to bake bread and bring this art back to there homes with a future interest in building clay ovens and creating an income.
Servicing the children's homes with bread and helping out Abha Seva Sadan multi-therapy charitable health center and Abha Seva Sedan hospital Anand Nagar with some funds.
Along with maintenance on the cowshed here extending and repairing the roof.
So lots of work has commenced with your great support. Thanks to you to all and to my close Irish friends and Family.
Love your work
My trip to India is coming to an end and there is another day left before I draw a close to this fundraiser. Any support will be greatly appreciated.

Universal humanism will not be established on the hard crust of the earth overnight but will come to fruition gradually stage by stage. It will include each and every person in the world as well as animals, plants and inanimate objects
