Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has been consistently working to preserve and protect our Sanatana Dharma for decades. Last August, we started Ghar Waapasi to welcome those converted Christians back to Hinduism. As of today, we have 20 Pracharaks conducting Ghar Waapasi in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.

               Also, we are equally dedicated to helping those who needed help due to Pandemic and Floods across all States in India. During Pandemic in 2020, we provided Annadanam to more than 1.5 lakh people in Andhra and Telangana. Similarly, we provided two weeks supply of dry goods to more than 750 Priest families in nine different locations.  Also in 2020, we provided meals to more than 15,000 First respondents (Police, Firefighters, medical staff, doctors, nurses, and others) in Dallas, Texas area.

Why Anna Danam?

As per Vedas, “Annadanam Samam Danam Trilokeshu Na Vidhathe” means Annadanam is supreme and cannot be compared to any other charity. Our tradition pronounces that one who does annadanam attains Punya Loka (heaven). In fact, the whole creation depends on the food. Taittireya Upanishad says “Annam vai Pranaha”, which means All life force comes from food. In Bhagavad Gita, Sri Krishna declares, “Annad bhavanti bhutani.” That means all beings evolved from food. Our scriptures talk about “Daridra Narayana” - God dwells in the poor person.

“Annad bhavanti bhootani" - these are the words of Sri Krishna in the Bhagvat Gita. It means that all creation is sustained due to food. Helping to assuage a person's hunger will win you good karmas in this world and in the next.

               Sri Sridhar from Bangalore and Satish Shanmugan, Omaha have coordinated the efforts and also by raising enough funds to make the food distribution possible. GHHF is grateful for their kindness and their passion to help these flood victims.

               GHHF is very happy to announce that we have employed two people in Tamil Nadu to engage in Ghar Waapasi. Mrs. Jyoti and Mrs. Jayalakshmi joined our team to participate in the Ghar Waapasi program. Food distribution is part of a humanitarian effort to help the needy who are in real desperate need.  

“Annadhanam - is the most pious and meritorious of all charity. Because, it is only by Annadhanam that one can be fully satisfied. It is only when one is given food, however much that person may take; there is a limit beyond which he just cannot take. The person says 'Thrupthosmi' (meaning ‘enough I am satisfied’). When food which is offered exceeds the limits, the person begs 'Please do not serve any more'. It is only when full satisfaction is expressed like this; the giver also reaps the full reward of charity”. Sai Baba

For the past few weeks, Andhra and Tamil Nādu were very much affected by floods, Lakhs lost their crops, cattle, horses, and other sources of livelihood. Global Hindu Heritage Foundation (GHHF) / www.savetemples.org has identified a few localities in Kadaluru Village,Chegalpattu Dist, Tamilnadu which were seriously affected, and no help has been reached so far. Ninety percent of the places were not even accessible, GHHF has managed to bring all those to a temple nearby which is relatively safe, and has distributed 5KG rice bags. These are utterly poor some are injured, sick, old, blind, etc. Our volunteers have worked tirelessly in identifying the neediest made a list and made sure everyone there got a bag at least. Recipients there with tears thanked the team so much it made a memorable and most salifying moment of our lives.

               In addition to GHHF our friends Satish Shanmugan, Omaha and Sridhar Muthrasanallur, Bangalore have contributed to their capacity during the need of the hour to whom GHHF thanks a million for their humanity and responsibility. Hoping to do much more to the neediest. There are about 475  fishermen families and we managed to help about 400 families so far with the resources we have.
