Service unto mankind and devotion unto God
In natural calamities, YDS volunteers are among the first to arrive and the last to leave. YDS have rendered dedicated relief services during times of domestic and international disasters to help people devastated in natural catastrophes. The following services have been provided by YDS centers all over the world in an effort to provide relief towards disaster-afflicted regions:
Provision of necessary Emergency medicines, supplies
Clothes, shoes for family and orphans
Continuous supply of pure drinkable water
2,000 tents for families and orphans
YDS volunteers have worked round-the-clock, for days on end to serve during Hurricane Katrina, the earthquake in Haiti and Kutch (Gujarat, India), Tsunami relief, and other catastrophes. These services provided free meals, clothing, medical supplies, relocating refugees, and the general rehabilitation of people affected by natural disasters.
‘VATSALYADHAM’ – a home to more than 200 orphans that were devastated in the Kutch (Gujarat) earthquake of January 2001. In this abode of love children found divine parents in the form of saints and where they were once depressed, they are now optimistic about their future.
