There’s a lot in the news about the challenges relief efforts are facing in Nepal, yet help is getting through. We are grateful for the opportunity to make any contribution we can to the people in Gorkha, at the epicenter of the earthquake.
We so appreciate the support of ORGANIC INDIA’s employees and founders who have responded with #LoveInAction to make these offerings. We’re sharing these pictorial updates so you can see how the donations to TentsToNepal are being put to good use.
Here’s our #LoveInAction offerings to Nepal getting ready for loading: canvas for tents, sewing machines and supplies, along with ORGANIC INDIA food items and herbal supplements being sent with the TentsToNepal team.
On Monday, this mighty 10 ton truck set out with over 500 yards of canvas, 170 pieces of tarpaulin, 1,100 lbs. of rope, sewing machines, accessories and tools, along with readymade tents for samples. We’ve also packed in ORGANIC INDIA food items and supplements such as Immunity, Ashwagandha, Turmeric and Tulsi to support the health and well being of the people of Gorkha.
In the meantime, ABARI, our partners on the ground collaborating with TentsToNepal, have already successfully provided shelter to 5,000 people in the Gorkha area. In our next blog, we’ll share more of the amazing accomplishments they’ve managed so far.
It was somewhat of an auspicious synchronicity that our Offerings to Nepal set out on the road on the day of Buddha Purnima. We offer our gratitude for the living wisdom that guides us to find peace in a constantly changing world, and for the realization that it is also human nature to respond to life with care and compassion. The farming families at Brindavan Farm join together with us all here at ORGANIC INDIA, with prayers for the people of Nepal and for the safe passage of these offerings.
As we post this blog, our #LoveInAction offerings with TentsToNepal are already crossing the border, but so much more help is needed. If you feel inspired to join us and add your donation, you can rest assured it will be a direct support to providing more shelter to more people.

All the funds for TentsToNepal are being received in India to pay for the supplies going to ABARI in Nepal.
With your support we can provide much needed shelter and supplies to help the people rebuild their lives.
Stay tuned for updates on what is being accomplished on the ground as the journey unfolds.
Our thanks to everyone continuing to share prayers and offerings to the people of Nepal.
In peace and True Wellness
