Sangha Supporting Rishikesh

Our beloved community in India is facing a great challenge and needs our support.  We are being called now to come together to support our brothers and sisters in this time of great need.

The funds we raise here will go through Sattva Yoga America, Inc.* to provide resources to the local community of Rishikesh in the form of medical supplies and care, food, clothing, etc. SYA, Inc. will work in collaboration with the Khushi Charitable Society  to ensure these resources will support those with the greatest need. 

Our first initiative is to purchase and ship several oxygen concentrators directly to Laxman Jhoola. This is an urgent need. Once there, they will be managed and distributed to the community as needed by Master Rishi Anand Mehrotra.

{UPDATE 5/6: Our next initiative is to provide support to these local villages in the form of food, herbs, medicine, medical care, etc. Please look under updates for more details}


CALL TO ACTION: Ways you can support

- Donate directly here.

- Gather a group of friends and set a goal to donate the full amount for one
 oxygen concentrator.

- Share this page and our mission with your family, friends, and colleagues. 

- Host your own mini-fundraiser: teach a class, offer a service, work an extra shift, etc. with the intention of donating the proceeds. Send Pennie the details and we will include it on our community page so our global sangha may participate.
