Govindas Swansea, was smashed up and ransacked on Thursday night, 19th November.
Burglers broke a hole in the roof to get in, then they went through the whole building, smashing up anything of value on their way, and stealing cash and valuables, which were used in the worship there.
Govindas is home to a vegetarian cafe, and is the local Temple for the Hare Krishnas. They are well known and liked in the area, being in this location for the last 15 years. I personally have very fond memories of my time there 15 years ago. The community of devotees is a wonderful, selfless community, and aswell as being generous of heart, also have a great sense of humour and compassion.
It is heartbreaking to think that such a wonderful group of individuals, who give so much, have fallen victim to such a heartless, selfish and violent act.
Please show your solidarity and support for this community, by donating according to your ability. I know that they will be so grateful for your support, and our support will also alleviate their shock and disturbance at this time.
All funds will go towards repairing the roof, fixing the broken window used as an escape route, repairing many other items, and replacing the crowns and other jewellery for the Pancha Tattva Deities in the Temple.
Thank you, but more importantly, They will be so grateful, and this will really help restore the community's spirits, as well as their home.
