As you will be aware, the Covid19 pandemic is currently affecting people in India very badly. As is often the case, it is the poorest communities who are most vulnerable at such times. As part of the Triratna Buddhist Community, we have strong connections and friendships with Indian Buddhists. Our community there has already lost many members, especially in recent weeks, and many others are ill or facing crises of livelihood.
Here are two charities that are well placed to channel aid quickly to where it is most needed.
Karuna Trust – supporting the most vulnerable and discriminated communities to survive the crisis:

Abhayaratna Trust – particularly helping order members who are badly affected.

Please give if you can. Even a small donation can make a big difference.
Thank you.
