“In these challenging times, let us all be brave and keep our strength and faith intact,” said Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Founder, The Art of Living, “Hold on to the faith that everything is going to be back to normal and everyone will overcome the fury of these floods. Lots of volunteers are doing plenty of service in the state. Let us all get together and serve more people.”
Over 1000 Yuvacharyas (youth volunteers) of The Art of Living have been working round the clock in the flood ravaged areas of Kerala reaching out to over 50,000 people in all 14 flood-affected districts. They have been helping to shift people from affected areas to safety and providing them with food, water, clothes and other basic necessities and organizing medical camps. More trucks with relief material for Kerala are scheduled throughout this week. The Art of Living has set up collection points across several cities.
