On June 20, 2020, Global Hindu Heritage Foundation has  distributed 18 Dry food items to the Priests in  Tiruchanur. These Archakas / Priests came from Tirupati Rural, Tiruchanur, Jeeva Kona, Renugunta,  Katakam Adi, Cherloopalli, Durgasamudram, Korlagunta and Thumalagunta villages.

As we mentioned earlier, many of our friends in India brought to our attention that many Archakas in VILLAGES are experiencing hardships and struggling to feed their families. GHHF is planning to distribute these items in Chittoor, Tirupati, Guntur, Vijayawada, and Visakhapatnam areas.

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, bought the items, and packed them into a big bag.

Sri Sridharacharyulu, Chairman of Nava Jeevan Seva Samashta helped distribute the food items 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.

It is time to help these Priests to meet their basic needs with our generous donation. It is time to acknowledge their invaluable service to Hindu Temples and Hindu Dharma. It is time to protect their dignity and self-respect.
