Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has distributed 18 Dry food items to the Priests in three Mandalams near Tirupati area:

Chandragiri Mandalam

Ramachandra Puram Mandalam

Veduru Kuppam Mandalam

As we mentioned earlier, many Archakas in VILLAGES are experiencing hardships and struggling to feed their families.

GHHF  has completed distributing the Dry Items in the village around Vijayawada and Tirupati.

We are planning to distribute to about 25 Priest families on June 27 around GUNTUR area.

Because of the fear of Coronavirus, we will pause distributing for a week and find aa appropriate time to distribute them in Chittoor and Visakhapatnam,

Each bag/kit will have the following items: Rice, Wheat flour, Cooking Oil, Urad Dal, Moong Dal, Brown Sugar, Tea Powder, Meal Packet, Chilli powder, Soaps, Tamarind, Turmeric, Sugar, Coconut oil, Upma Ravva, Mustard Seeds, and other items.

Our Savetemples Office personnel K. Reddappa and K Subbanna coordinated the event around Tirupati area. They brought the items, and packed them into a big bag and distributed the to the Priests

Since the Lockdown due to the fear of spreading Coronavirus, all the Hindu Temples are closed. Now, many Pujaris / Hindu Temple priests are having a hard time meeting their basic needs. Many of them do not have any salaries either from the government or the private Temples. Most of them do not have enough savings to pay their rent and electricity. Furthermore, many private temples do not have enough income to pay their salaries. Consequently, many Pujaris do not have enough resources to meet their daily expenses to provide meals for their families. Recently, newspapers wrote about some priests begging on the streets as they could not provide meals for the family. That news pained so many people and some organizations are helping them financially. They are facing a grim and grave predicament.

 

MEDIA COVERAGE: 

Andhra Prabha, Sakshi and Enadu papers covered the distribution of the items to the priests.

Voice of Andhra TV Channel showed the distribution also.
