AMMA'S HELP IN HAITI


Haiti Relief Efforts

After the catastrophic earthquake struck Haiti in January 2010, Embracing the World immediately joined relief efforts and is continuing to asesss and provide long-term needs for the earthquake victims.

Food for Earthquake Victims

After ETW representatives traveled to Haiti to assess long-term needs, ETW has begun sponsoring the education of children affected by the disaster and providing staple foods like rice and beans to affected families. The ultimate goal is for the children to receive their schooling onsite, with all requisite academic subjects covered as well as separate classes for music and arts.


Haitian students helping out in filling food bags donated and distributed by ETW for the victims

with AMMA'S grace we too were able to help

Sunday, November 13, 2010


TO: The Subscribers, Supporters, and Friends of The Bridge

FROM: Nanci Stevens

RE: CONGRATULATIONS!



What a wonderful and fun fulfilled year this has been!



I have been both dreading and happily anticipating this time of year – starting now getting ready for Christmas all the way through Easter – non-stop busy. Never in my wildest dreams did I believe it would be possible to accomplish what we at The Bridge have been able to do. You the Bridge Supporters put 52 children in school this year, and monthly feed close to 600 people. We were privileged to help with building bridges, bathrooms, and basketball courts!



You’ve improved lives, by helping start new businesses, and have started lots of children on the road to a more hope-filled life. Almost all of the Bridge Kids are first-generation literates, and you have made that possible. You’ve sent them off to school with hearty and nutritious food in their stomachs, which has enabled them to concentrate on their studies, instead of the gnawing hunger in their bellies.



The Bridge School Program is about to graduate two special kids, Alejandro and Maria.





They are the first to go all the way through 6th grade, supported by your donations of hands-on volunteering, money, school supplies, and prayers. Alejandro is graduating first in his class, with his sister Maria not far behind. It’s off to high school next year. If they were our own kids, we couldn’t be prouder.



I was reflecting last week on the day Alejandro’s Mom came to us to ask if we could help put him in school. We’d been known to spend that much money on a night out on the town, so it didn’t take too much persuading. No one in their family had ever had an education, but she wanted one for her kids. I wondered then if we’d be around for the second, or the third years. Little did I know that he’d be only the first of 52; all children with no hope of getting into school without the help of you, The Bridge Supporters. I’d like you to reflect on what that might mean to future generations. You are indeed a blessing.



We won’t stop now – we’re on a roll, and expect to see at least these same 52 and I suspect a few more to be properly suited up when the next school year starts in February.



Nothing thrills me more than to see little Irene reading the newspaper to her mother, or Mauricio reading out loud to his baby sister. These children are daily becoming more qualified for quality employment. They will be less subject to exploitation. They will suffer less despair. You have given meaning to the lives of these children, and hope to their families.



I only wish you could experience first-hand as I do the thrill of being at ground level being able to meet personally the lives you have touched with your outpouring of time, talent, and treasure. The world is a better place because of you. Feel free to polish your halos and fluff up your wings. You can stand proud in knowing that you indeed do make a difference!



*Thank You for all that you are, and all that you do*

AMMA'S DREAM IN SPANISH-english at the end

Todo el mundo debería dormir sin temor,
al menos una noche.
Todos deberían saciar su hambre, al menos una vez al día.
Tendría que haber, al menos un día,
en que no ingresara nadie
en los hospitales a causa de la violencia.
Todos deberían ayudar a los pobres y necesitados haciendo,
al menos un día, servicio desinteresado.
Esta es la plegaria de Amma
Que se cumpla al menos este pequeño sueño.
- Sri Mata Amritanandamayi -

ENGLISH+++++
Everyone in the world should sleep without fear,
at least for one night, sleep without fear.

Everyone in the world should eat to their fill,
at least for one day, eat to their fill

There should be one day when there is no violence,
no one is injured, no one is harmed.

All people young and old should serve the poor
and needy, at least for one day, serve selflessly.

This is my dream.
This is my prayer.
Love is the answer, love is the way.
Love is the answer, love is the way.

AUGUST 15,2010...FEAST OF THE ASSUMPTION OF MARY

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven at the end of her earthly life is a defined dogma of the Catholic Church. The Feast of the Assumption, celebrated every year on August 15, is a very old feast of the Church, celebrated universally by the sixth century. It commemorates the death of Mary and her bodily assumption into Heaven, before her body could begin to decay--a foretaste of our own bodily resurrection at the end of time. Because it signifies the Blessed Virgin's passing into eternal life, it is the most important of all Marian feasts

GURU PURNIMA....JULY 25


Guru Púrnima es el día en que se rinde culto especial al Maestro espiritual.


La fecha de celebración coincide con la luna llena del mes de Asadha (Julio- Agosto). En este día se conmemora el nacimiento del gran sabio Sri Vyasa , y al linaje de seres iluminados que le ha precedido.


El legado de la India al mundo es su cultura de iluminación, su perspectiva para que los seres humanos alcancen la cumbre de la conciencia de Dios. Ante la decepcionante sensación de vacío que aporta el glamour del materialismo, la sociedad moderna busca orientación y cobijo en las filosofías perennes de oriente. Desde la antigüedad hasta nuestros días, existe en la India una sucesión ininterrumpida de seres iluminados cuyo fin es conducir al buscador de la Verdad hasta su objetivo.


Puede que te preguntes qué necesidad hay de encontrar un guía espiritual. «¿Es que no puedo leerme unos cuantos libros espirituales y avanzar a mi manera por el camino espiritual?»


Cuando uno quiere ser médico, no sólo tiene que formarse con catedráticos expertos sino que, al acabar la carrera, debe hacer las prácticas en un hospital bajo la supervisión de médicos experimentados. Si se necesitan tantos años para poder hacer realidad el sueño de ser médico, ¿qué no se necesitará entonces para establecernos en la conciencia de la Verdad suprema? Si lo que deseamos es la sabiduría espiritual, deberemos dirigirnos a auténticos maestros espirituales que hayan estudiado, practicado y experimentado la Verdad.


¿Cómo distinguir a un verdadero maestro espiritual de un impostor? Al estar en compañía de un ser iluminado, se siente un aura tangible de amor y paz. Se puede observar que todos los que acuden al que está inmerso en la Divinidad reciben el mismo trato independientemente de su estatus social, posición económica, religión o raza. Todas y cada una de las palabras que dice y de las cosas que hace un verdadero Maestro tiene como propósito el despertar espiritual de la gente. En el mahatma que sirve a todos y acoge a todos con los brazos abiertos no existe ni el más mínimo rastro de ego ni de egoísmo.


El verdadero Guru es algo que el intelecto es incapaz de comprender. El Satguru trasciende toda lógica y juicio mental porque se trata de una experiencia. Al Satguru no se le alcanza a comprender mediante complicados ejercicios intelectuales, pero los que tienen pureza de corazón consiguen reconocerlo de forma espontánea.
EN ENGLISH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Guru Purnima is the day on which special worship the spiritual master.


The timing coincides with the full moon ASADHO month (July to August). This day commemorates the birth of the great sage Sri Vyasa, and the lineage of enlightened beings that preceded it.


The legacy of India to the world is its culture of lighting, his vision for human beings to reach the pinnacle of God-consciousness. Given the disappointing feeling of emptiness that brings the glamor of materialism, modern society seeks advice and shelter in the perennial philosophies of the East. From ancient times until today, in India there is an unbroken succession of enlightened beings whose purpose is to lead the seeker of Truth to its target.


You may wonder what need of finding a spiritual guide. "Is that I can not read me a few spiritual books and move my way along the spiritual path?"


When one wants to be a doctor, not only has to be formed with faculty experts but, after graduating, you must practice in a hospital under the supervision of experienced physicians. If it takes many years to realize the dream of becoming a doctor, what does not need time to settle into the consciousness of the supreme Truth? If we wish to spiritual wisdom, we turn to authentic spiritual masters who have studied, practiced and experienced the truth.


How to distinguish a true spiritual master of an impostor? Being in the company of an enlightened being, you feel a tangible aura of love and peace. One can see that all who come to which is immersed in the Godhead are treated equally regardless of their social status, economic status, religion or race. Each and every one of the words we say and the things that makes a true teacher is meant for people's spiritual awakening. In the Mahatma that serves everyone and welcomes all with open arms there is not the slightest trace of ego or selfishness.


The true Guru is something that the intellect is incapable of understanding. The Satguru transcends all logic and mental trial because it is an experience. The Satguru is not complicated enough to understand by intellectual exercises, but those with purity of heart gets recognized spontaneously.

NEWS FROM AMMA

News
SUNY Confers Amma with a Honorary Doctorate

The State University of New York (SUNY) presented spiritual leader and humanitarian Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (Amma) with an honorary doctorate in humane letters today at a special ceremony held at its campus in Buffalo.
SUNY confers honorary degrees to “recognize excellence and extraordinary achievement in the fields of public affairs, the sciences, humanities and the arts, scholarship and education, business and philanthropy and social services which exemplify the mission and purpose of the University; to honor meritorious and outstanding service to the University, the State of New York, the United States, or to humanity at large; to recognize individuals whose lives and significant achievements should serve as examples of the University’s aspirations for its students.”
Here is a quote from Amma’s talk on receiving the honorary doctorate.
“It is Amma’s prayer that we develop the expansive-mindedness to embrace both scientific knowledge and spiritual wisdom. We can no longer afford to see these two streams of knowledge as flowing in opposite directions. In truth, they complement one another. If we merge these streams, we will find that we are able to create a mighty river—a river whose waters can remove suffering and spread life to all of humanity.” Read More

Water, Precious Water
Just before Amma left for her North American tour, Amma met with all the ashram residents in Amritapuri. A questioner then asked Amma to suggest ways to save resources like water and other natural wealth within the ashram and to make its use efficient so at least the ashram could set an example. Amma said she was so very happy hearing the question on water and natural preservation and that her children were thinking about it. Amma started telling all how precious natural resources were and how important it is to save them.
She suggested having separate pumps in the toilet and using the sea-water or backwater for flushing and separate fresh water for the taps. Amma also pointed out that this solution may be expensive to set up.
Since water taps waste a lot of water when the force is high, one may use accessories that can make the water slower so less water is wasted. Many keep the tap open while brushing, shaving or washing. Amma said we need to be aware and to be patient.

“While traveling in an airplane, the water tap actually trickles and one waits patiently to wash his hands or face, even if a billionaire or a businessman. Similarly in a community like here, one needs to be careful and aware.

The world is going through a tough situation. In the future, there might even be war to get access to water. If it is the problem of the future, we should also be concerned and responsible now. Suppose there is a fire in the ground floor of a block of flats and the person calls out for help, a person living on the tenth floor cannot remain idle saying “it is fire in someone else’s apartment, why should I bother?” Soon the fire may even spread to the tenth floor. Likewise, we are all responsible for what is happening and for what will happen.

Amma said that the ashram belongs to the world. So one should have awareness and responsibility. Preservation of our natural resources should be one of our foremost duties. The natural resources that we consume is the wealth that need to be transferred to coming generations. If we mindlessly exploit the resources, we won’t be able to leave anything for our grand children.

Living with Amma
By Swamini Krishnamritaprana; Excerpted from Matruvani, 2002

For Grace to flow to us, Amma says that we must put forth a lot of effort. Many people say that everything that happens is destined and that there is nothing one can do about it. Such people, Amma points out, usually go off the spiritual path. The effort that we put forth creates our destiny. Therefore, we should always try to put forth strong, positive effort in everything we do.
There is a story about Beethoven that illustrates the point above. One night after he had performed a brilliant piano concert, many people converged around him to congratulate him. Among them was a young woman who said, “Oh sir, if only God had given me the same gift of genius that you have, I would be so happy.” Beethoven replied, “ Madam, it is not genius or magic. All you have to do is practice hard on your piano eight hours a day after 40 years, and you will be as good as I am.”
Another example is a story about Thomas Edison. He tried using more than 2,000 different materials as filament in a light-bulb, before finding the right material. When a young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times, Edison replied, “ I never failed even once. Inventing the light bulb just happened to be a 2000 step process.”
People like Edison and Beethoven have the right understanding about the value of the effort. That is why they were able to accomplish so much in the world. Only when we really strive hard will grace flow to us.





Gems to treasure
Education

Education is not only to help us live a comfortable life of plenty. When our plans fall apart, when we face failure and loss, when we are knocked down, education should help us get back on our feet. Education should help us regain our mental equipoise, self-confidence and positive attitude, so that we can continue forward.”
-- Amma

Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity.
-- Aristotle
Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is, not a preparation for life; education is life itself.
-- John Dewey

Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence.
-- Robert Frost

He who opens a school door, closes a prison.
-- Victor Hugo

HISTORIC MOMENT IN BUFFALO,NEW YORK


Historic moment at Buffalo
28 May 2010 9 Comments

25 May Buffalo, NY

I was fortunate to be there and want to share my experience with all of you.

It was a historic occasion , probably one of a kind .. It was a great moment that a university in US would choose to confer a doctorate not on a scientist or an engineer but a Sage, Spiritual Master… One of the deans said “In honoring Amma, we are also honoring the TRADITION SHE REPRESENTS AND the culture and spirituality that India has to offer”. So it was a great day for Sanatana Dharma.

Slee concert hall was large and well lit. The stage had a big organ with all the pipes going to the ceiling .. from the top there hanged a large screen where they were showing a slide show- photos of Amma, Coimbatore campus, Amritapuri campus, SUNY Buffalo campus photos etc.. it was nice seeing our university photos being shown at SUNY Buffalo.

Then came the master of ceremonies Stephen , one of the top officials there and who visited Amritapuri last year. To the tune of a new song composed by Rahul, the procession walked in . There were the President of SUNY Buffalo Thompson, the Provost Satish Tripathi and several other top SUNY BUffalo people. Also from our side
, there was our VC of Amrita and others.

Then the MC said, all rise for Chancellor Amma to walk in .. and to thunderous applause as we all stood up, Amma and the swamis walked in . They sat on the chairs allotted to them ,and then there was a organ music piece played by a music faculty for a few minutes. After which the president of SUNY Buffalo spoke trying to introduce Amma to the audience.

I say “trying” to introduce, because in his own words, Amma is hard to explain in a few lines.. anyway he described Her as an incredible humanitarian , and spiritual leader and also as the chancellor of Amrita University that has a partnership with Buffalo. He went on to talk about the collaboration between Amrita and UB, and how Amma was a champion of the cause of education.

But then he went on to say that Her work is too large and the list of Her accomplishments too numerous to enlist and maybe “the following video will give you a better picture of who She is and what She does”.

Then they showed the new ” Embracing the world video “… It was beautiful as they showed darshan , Amma’s charitable works, tsunami relief, the relief efforts for the children of the families where farmers committed suicide , the bhuj earthquake efforts, katrina etc etc etc …

Then again at the end of that He said “clearly an incredible humanitarian … Buffalo is honored to give the highest degree of the Doctorate of Humane letters upon this incredible leader .

Then He invited Amma on the stage, and a lady , said ” by the powers vested in me i now confer upon you the title of the doctorate of humane letters ” and put a hood on a smiling Amma…

Everyone stood up and there was thunderous applause for a few minutes… Tears flowed in most eyes, as they recognised that this was a historic moment …
100 years later, when the Amma Bhagavatam is written , SUNY will stand out as the first university to have recognised Amma … It was historic because a university was recognising the ideology that Amma stood for, and the work She does ..

Then Amma addressed the gathering. She sat on a chair and Swamini Krishnamrita translated. This was one of the best talks I have heard from Amma … so beautiful, cohesive and hard hitting .

She started with thanking the UB system for this honor and in characteristic humility said that there are thousands of Her children who serve selflessly and have made all the work possible in Her organization .This award really belongs to them ..

Then She went on to say that science and technology have progressed, more discoveries have been made, more devices have been made…. thousands of new books have been written … more universities have come up.. many more PhD’s have come up .. knowledge has increased tremendously ….. but yet the world is in a sorry state- families are breaking up,divorces are increasing, sorrow is increasing ,violence is increasing , terrorism is increasing, the whole nature is polluted, the atmosphere and air and water are polluted, the climate is going haywire etc etc … Something has terribly gone wrong .

If in a garden of beautiful flowers instead of a fragrance there is a terrible stench, you know something is wrong .. similarly too is the state of the world today . Saying knowledge has increased is like saying the sun has risen but it is still dark…

Spirituality is also a science … The ancient sages carried out experiments in the inner labs of their own minds and came up with basic truths.. until modern science recognises these basic truths , the darkness will continue..

it was a great talk ….applause that followed says more.

Then MC spoke again and said “In honoring Amma, we honor Her work and also the tradition She represents – the rich culture and spirituality that India brings “. That was a most moving remark.

LA LUZ DE AMMA PROJECTS/SEVAS


Hola a Todos

English translation under

Hogar Montiel

Hasta ahora lo que hemos hecho en el Hogar Montiel es construir 6 baños, le pintamos los cuartos de colores a las niñas, el pasillo que estaban en muy mal estado y el baño viejo, y otros pequeños arreglos.
Con la ayuda de Cuca y Gabriela pusimos una cerca eléctrica ya que había un acosador que las espiaba, tenemos que recordar que estas son niñas con abuso sexual, así que hubo que protegerlas para que se sintieran seguras.
También donamos semanalmente comida, ropa, jabón y auxiliamos para sacarles los piojos a las niñas, les ensenamos yoga y ayudamos hacer tareas y estudiar esto se hace una vez al mes.
Todos los meses aquí se donan 250 dólares de comida y otras necesidades.

Hogar Magdala
Estos niños se encuentran paralizados y algunos ciegos por el abuso físico violento y sexual de sus padres.
En el hogar Magdala se encuentra Eckart, Erland y Maribel aquí les ponemos una maquina que se llama LIFE MACHINE que los ayuda en varios niveles (emocional, mental, físico y energético) compramos PEDI ASURE, se ocupan usualmente 30 por mes de los grandes.
Los ayudamos a comer (algunos comen por sonda) y se les da un poco de mimos.
Compramos un compresor de $500, y un verticalizador que cuesta $2500 con la ayuda de Arnoldo Brenes.

El tercer proyecto es tratar de ayudar a los indigentes a salir de las drogas, una vez al mes se les da comida y se les presenta la opción de ayuda.
Este último proyecto no es tan exitoso, en un ano solo hemos sacado a uno, con la colaboración especial de Isabel y Vimala que fueron las encargadas de llevarlo a rehabilitación.
Bueno esto es más o menos lo que se hacemos con sus donaciones.
Gracias a todos los estudiantes de yoga por haber asistido a las clases de yoga sin fines de lucro.
Gracias también a los colaboradores del satsang de Amma.

Si usted desea verificar nuestras tareas o donar directamente a los hogares, y hacer visitas para ver donde fueron usados sus donativos llamar directamente a los hogares y preguntar sobre lo aquí descrito, aquí se darán cuenta que se ha donado más de lo que fue recaudado en los cursos de yoga.

Hello everyone,

Here is an update on what we have been doing with the 3 projects here in San Jose Costa Rica. Thanks to all of you, we have been able to get a lot done! And we will continue to do so. Please let us know if you would like to join in on any of these projects. We would love to share this wonderful enriching experience with everyone.
Hogar Montiel Santana Rio Oro (home for 16 girls ages 7-18)- Here are the things we have been able to accomplish in the Hogar Montiel so far: a new bathroom with 6 showers, 5 sinks, and 3 big wash sinks for washing clothes.
All 4 bedrooms are painted with bright happy colors; each room has two different colors. The girls are so happy to have a new, clean, pretty room. You should see their smiles. Priceless! The hallway with high ceilings has been painted, and the ceiling in the old bathroom was in poor condition and we were able to paint and repair that as well. Some other small things were also fixed.
An electric fence was put up surrounding the whole property. This was done very fast since there was a "peeping Tom" spying on the girls at night! It was very important to get this fence up fast since most of these girls have been abused and felt very insecure knowing that a man was inside the property and spying on them. Now they are so content and sleep the night through without ever thinking about their security! They know that they are safe now.
We make weekly donations of food, clothes, soaps, cleaning supplies and treatments for the ongoing lice problems. We do weekly "lice checks and treatments if they are needed, with a natural recipe of bitters, alcohol and boric acid. It works! We go 4-5 times a week to help with homework and prepare for exams. We do activities such as yoga, dance and play games too. Fun stuff......

Hogar Magdala ( home for 16 disabled kids)- These children are paralyzed and some blind due to the physical abuse they received from their parents and family members. On Wednesdays Eckart, Maribel and Erland visit the children and help out with whatever is needed, such as feeding, which is done mostly through feeding tubes, moving the kids from beds to chairs, and just giving affection and love to these sweet souls. They also bring along the LIFE machine to help heal the children's physical, mental, energetic and emotional bodies.In addition we bring a nutritional supplement that is needed on a daily basis called Pediasure. They use 1 large can a day. Each can costs $20.
We were able to buy a compressor for the oxygen tank which is needed by some of the children to breath. We are now saving up to purchase what is called a Verticalizer, so the children can change positions on this table that moves them up & down (Vertically and horizontally) for their circulation. This machine costs $2000 US dollars,
Update
The verticalizer was actually donated by a friend Arnoldo Brenes.
Homeless Feeding- The third Project is the homeless feeding Project. Once a month we make 200 servings of a delicious hot soup and bring it to the streets of San Jose, where the most destitute come out to enjoy this hot meal made with love. We also offer them help if they are interested in going to a rehabilitation center to get off drugs and alcohol. This project has not been so successful in the aspect of getting people into rehab centers. We have only been able to get one person to a rehab with the help of Vimala and Isabel. However they really love the soup and the fact that people show up who care and have compassion for them.
So this is what we have been doing with your donations, we thank you all. Special thanks to everyone who contributed and helped make these projects happen; Peter & Michaela, Stefano, Hazel, Cuca, Gabriela, Yoga Mandir, Yoga Lamat, Rancho Itauna, and all the yoga students who attended the workshops to help these projects. Also, all those from the Amma Sat Sang "La Luz de Amma". We appreciate all your donations, in whatever form the have come in.
with gratitude,
Matias and Chelsea (Vaishnavi)

If you desire, you can verified directly were your donations have been used, by calling and visiting the orphanages, and the street projects, here you will notice also that the donations were larger than what we made with the yoga retreats.

Gracias a las bendiciones de Amma ..then in english ...Grateful for Amma´s blessings

Gracias a las bendiciones de Amma y al deseo desinteresado de ayuda de don Alberto Alonso quien ha ayudado en forma muy generosa al hogar Magdala, ha empezado a funcionar el programa de recolección de verduras y frutas para los orfanatos.
En este momento estamos coordinando la logística para recoger los productos del Automercado de Plaza Mayor.
El producto debe recogerse todos los días y esto va a incrementar el costo por transporte así que si alguien se puede comprometer a ayudar en este aspecto sería de muchísima utilidad.
Habrá días asignados para el Hogar Magdala y el Hogar Montiel. Esperamos que con esto se pueda cubrir el faltante de verduras y frutas de ambos hogares para beneficiar a los niños en cuanto a su nutrición.
Deseamos recordarles que en el hogar Montiel el patrocinador que suplía parte de los comestibles como arroz, frijoles, aceites , sal y demás se retiró, por lo que estamos tratando de ayudar a soportar esta situación mientras conseguimos a algún patrocinador.
Les agradeceríamos que se pongan en contacto para cualquier ayuda que puedan dar o contacto que nos puedan ofrecer para solucionar esta situación.

En el amor de Amma

We are grateful for Amma´s blessings and Don Alberto Alonso´s selfless help for allowing the fruit and vegetable recollection program to take place. He has been generously helping Hogar Magdala for two months already and now arranged for Automercado in Plaza Mayor to donate their surplus fruits and vegetables for the children. The product has to be collected everyday, which will increase expenses, therefore we are looking for volunteers who can commit to help with this chore.



We will asign days to alternate the delivery to Hogar Magdala and Hogar Montiel. Our aim is to provide enough fruits and vegetables for the children in order to enhance their nutrition. We hope, through this program, to be able to achieve this.



We would like to remind you that the sponsor providing part of Hogar Montiel edibles, such as rice, beans, oil, salt and sugar can no longer help them. For this reason we are trying to help them fulfill this needs while we find another sponsor to take the responsability.



.Any type of help and donations are welcomed. Please contact us if you think you can contribute in this.

Amma´s Love

AMMA'S RELIEF EFFORT IN HAITI


Haiti Relief Efforts

March 1, 2010

Amma responded to the terrible Haiti tragedy by bringing her unique brand of care to the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.

Br. Dayamrita Chaitanya, having just returned from his second visit to the island nation, reports that a four-story house has been rented in Laboulle, a suburb in the hills outside of Port Au Prince, for the express purpose of establishing an orphanage there.

Support for this endeavor will come from Embracing the World, the charitable arm of Amma’s organization, in conjunction with MA Center’s Health Care Charities, Inc., and the Amma Foundation of Canada. Applications for the required permits are being filed with the Haitian government, and propose to open the orphanage with twenty-five children initially.

To date, Embracing the World has shipped a container with pallets of medical supplies to Haiti within two weeks after the earthquake. It was received by Partners in Health, an organization the has been working in Haiti for the last twenty years. The list of supplies included assorted medications, surgical equipment and OR set-up supplies, feeding and drainage tubes, assorted wound care supplies, diagnostic supplies, syringes, needles, blankets and sheets, drapes, tents, sleeping bags, face masks, obstetric and infant care supplies, wheel chairs, crutches, braces, splints, protein powders, saline solution, disinfectants, and the list goes on. A second container of supplies is now being assembled and will ship as soon as possible.
