Namaste everyone,

Today, on Guru Purnima, Tripura Foundation is launching their “MILLION MEALS of HoPE” Project with the divine goal of helping Dr Pillai (Baba) feed a million meals around the world!

Baba has said that He incarnated on the earth plane specially to alleviate and end poverty and human suffering.

In Singapore, in honour of Tripura Foundation’s MILLION MEALS OF HoPE project, Baba’s Singapore community gave generously to help feed the poor, orphaned children, the hungry and the homeless.

Together, with seed money from Tripura Foundation, a generous donation from one of Tripura Foundation’s benefactors here in Singapore and donations from our Singapore community members, we had in total $1100 which we used to dry provisions for two soup kitchens and an orphanage in Singapore.

The short video above shows Chay, April and my visit to a wholesale center in Singapore to buy dry provisions for two soup kitchens: Willing Hearts and the Singapore Buddhist Lodge. Willing Hearts distributes a minimum of 3,000 meals each a day and the Singapore Buddhist Lodge feeds about 5,000 people a day!

In total, we bought 55 kgs of rice vermicelli, 6 kilograms of dried mushrooms and 10 kilograms of dried anchovies which we had delivered to Willing Hearts and Singapore Buddhist Lodge. All these dry provisions feed slightly over 3000 meals.

We will also be buying food provisions for a local orphanage here in Singapore, which has 90 children living there.

In Malaysia, our community member, Satwant, also did a wonderful job of buying and distributing dry provisions (on behalf of Tripura Foundation’s MILLION MEALS OF HoPE) to several soup kitchens and homes in Malaysia to feed the poor, homeless and handicapped children.

Satwant estimates that with the dry provisions, Tripura Foundation was able to contribute to over 1,000 meals!

Below are some photos that Satwant sent in:

I would like to encourage everyone to help Tripura Foundation reach their goal of feeding a MILLION MEALS OF HoPE!

Every meal contributed is a divine blessing to you since you are feeding someone who would otherwise suffer in hunger if he or she did not have the food.

.

To help Tripura Foundation achieve their MILLION MEALS OF HoPE goal is easy:

(1) Make a donation (as little as $10) to Tripura Foundation at http://www.tripurafoundation.org/MillionMeals.html
