In 2013, Maharashtra was affected by a severe drought, considered as the region’s worst in 50 years. The situation had been so bad that only a litre of water would be available for usage for a person each day, for all activities.
We were alert to the worsening situation in these drought-hit areas and responded swiftly to the need for relief and care. We adopted the village of Bavi in Beed district of Maharashtra and undertook water storage projects aimed at developing sustainable irrigation and drinking water sources such as man-made lakes, which would provide a source of drinking water for the entire village and for future generations to use. We also banned fishing in these lakes, so as to preserve the life of fish.
“It was an immense pleasure to have the volunteers from Shrimad Rajchandra Love and Care for this Shramyajna. They helped improve the morale of all of us. The seva that was done by the group was unique. Most of the groups that come would work for 5 - 10 minutes and then take rest, unlike the SRLC volunteers who would work for almost 2 hours without thinking of their physical condition. It was so nice to see their dedication at work. The volunteers were very responsive to the problems of the people and also played a role in inculcating moral values in them. I am grateful to Pujya Gurudevshri for His compassion and sending His team of volunteers for the cause.”
Celebrating the 25th Anniversary Year of the Shrimad Rajchandra Mission Dharampur, SRLC launched the Shrimad Rajchandra Grow Green Drive 2018, an initiative to plant 5000 trees at the Ashram during this glorious year. The first phase of the drive was flagged off by Pujya Gurudevshri on the auspicious occasion of Guru Purnima amidst a euphoric gathering of devotees. A variety of evergreen, flowering, fruit bearing and shade providing were planted. The culmination of this 3 day drive was the planting of 108 majestic ‘Gratitude Trees’ along the road leading to the amphitheatre. These trees shall adorn the Ashram, making the ambience more serene, the climate cooler and the landscapes greener.
