$1 Million to Bush-Clinton Katrina Relief Fund

Following hurricanes Katrina and Rita, more than 100 Embracing the World service groups throughout North America responded by delivering food, clothing, school supplies and other essential items to the refugees. Our volunteers visited relief sites and provided medical care and emotional support. Amma also helped the displaced to locate one another via a dedicated website built for the survivors. Swami Ramakrishnananda and Brahmachari Dayamrita Chaitanya representing the M.A. Center met former US President Bill Clinton on 8th December 2005 in his offices in Harlem, New York City, where they handed over the check of one million dollars for the Hurricane Katrina relief. The donation is one of the largest to the fund–which is run by former U.S. presidents George Bush Senior and Bill Clinton– has received from a non-government organization to date.
