Care During COVID-19
See how TPRF is helping people cope during the pandemic and show your support.
The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) is working with partners to provide over $500,000 in crucial medical care, supplies, food, and other humanitarian aid to those suffering during the COVID-19 pandemic.
TPRF is also adjusting its signature programs to continue helping people address their fundamental needs while following official distancing recommendations to help stem the spread of the virus.
Peace Education Program
While many in-person Peace Education Program workshops have been paused, a growing number of facilitators are offering the popular workshops virtually so that participants can continue their learning.
TPRF Founder Prem Rawat posted a series of 101 uplifting “Lockdown” messages and is posting ongoing “One 2 One” videos and “Life’s Essentials” podcasts covering many of the same themes as the workshops to help people cope during the tough times. He has also been attending small meetings with Peace Education Program participants and supporters.
Food for People
After a pause last year, daily Food for People meal services have resumed for children in Ghana. In India and Nepal, services are shifting quickly depending on local needs and regulations, with periods of pauses and resumptions. TPRF has also been working with local partner NGOs to provide additional aid, including masks, knitting classes, and home supply deliveries to the handicapped and elderly. In addition to Food for People, TPRF is providing grants to new partners to feed those in need in other parts of India as well other countries including the U.S., Ecuador, and South Africa.
Thank you to everyone who is supporting these humanitarian efforts.
