Prem Rawat Foundation Providing Humanitarian Aid for Flood Victims in Brazil & Kenya

Thanks to the generous support of donors from across the world, The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF) has been able to provide $50,000 in humanitarian aid for flood victims in Kenya and Brazil.

In Brazil, torrential rain has been falling across the southern state of Rio Grande do Sul, causing one of the worst floods in the history of the country. Unusually heavy rain has also recently fallen across Kenya, causing devastating floods in several major cities, including the capital of Nairobi. As a result, millions of people across the two countries are struggling with displacement and other emergencies.

TPRF is helping by giving $50,000 in grants to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) to provide vulnerable people with food, drinking water, sanitation, hygiene kits, clothing, medical supplies, medical care and mental health support. The humanitarian aid will be evenly divided to help people in both countries who need it the most. In Brazil, the aid will focus on supporting indigenous populations.

“We deeply appreciate The Prem Rawat Foundation’s grants towards MSF’s response to the floods in Kenya and our activities in Brazil. This support helps our teams deliver critical medical and humanitarian aid, such as running mobile clinics, offering consultations, and mental health activities to communities impacted by the floods and to those otherwise unable to access medical care. We are grateful to The Prem Rawat Foundation community for standing with MSF and for their trust and commitment to our work,” says Alexa Adam, MSF Director of Foundations and Corporate Partnerships.

The aid is possible due to the support of TPRF donors from across the globe.

“Thanks to each of you who donate to make humanitarian aid like this possible,” says Linda Pascotto, TPRF Board Chair.  “Your kindness is going to make a real difference for people and provide a ray of hope. Your generosity is always much appreciated.”

Addressing Human Needs Beyond the Floods

Since Prem Rawat founded TPRF in 2001, it has given over 180 grants totaling over $6.3 million to a variety of partner NGOs in 47 countries to help victims of natural disasters, disease, war and other tragedies.

The humanitarian grants are just one of the ways that TPRF fulfills its mission of addressing fundamental human needs and advancing dignity, peace and prosperity across the globe.

TPRF’s Food for People program has provided over 6.3 million nutritious meals, clean water and educational opportunities to underserved children and elderly adults in India, Nepal and Ghana.

TPRF also offers the Peace Education Program, an innovative series of video-based workshops that have helped over 400,000 people in 80 countries discover their own inner strength, hope and peace.

Registered as a U.S.-based 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization, TPRF earns the highest rankings from independent evaluators such as Candid (Guidestar) and Charity Navigator for financial responsibility, transparency and accountability.
