ISKCON PUERTO RICO TEMPLE BASHED BY HURRICANE MARIA. WE NEED YOUR HELP, PLEASE DONATE!

ISKCON Puerto Rico Gurabo - New Govardhana Hill


Hurricane Maria broke most of the roof and caused severe structural and internal damage (see photos).  The temple grounds, trees and landscaping were totally destroyed. 

We need to rebuild the temple for Sri Sri Radha Krishna.  The building is old and the structure is not solid, not able to withstand the heavy winds, much less a permanent roof, which is essential in a hurricane alley.  The value of rebuilding the place with electricity, plumbing, etc. could be anywhere from USD 150,000 to USD 350.000. We are awaiting for a professional appraisal, and will post it here. The  devotees of Puerto Rico need your help to continue preaching  Krishna consciousness in Puerto Rico. Fixing the structural damage is one urgent and important aspect. However, the situation in the country is extremely difficult. Food is scarce and gas lines are 80-100 cars long. Very few places, if any, have electricity.

Iskcon Rio Piedras Preaching Centre Iskcon Rio Piedras  - San Juan PR


The preaching center was flooded with 1 meter of water, damaging all the drywalls, doors, interior and electrical, etc. Most of the interior will have to be replaced. The local congregation is not wealthy, and is challenged by their own expenses for reparation of personal property. We humbly appeal to the greater devotee community, our friends, members and supporters, to help in this moment of dire need.

Hare Krishna,
My name is Adhira Devy Dasi (Olga M Santafé) secretary of Iskcon Mission Society and disciple of Guru Prasad Swami.
First of all, thank you very much to all the devotees and friends who have donated or collaborated for this wonderful cause to rebuild the temple of Radha Krishna of Iskcon Puerto Rico.
Through me, I will receive the funds from Gofundme and transfer them directly to Iskcon Puerto Rico, where Srila Virabahu Maharaja, together with President Arisudana Prabhu, will begin to coordinate the reconstruction of the temple in the coming weeks.
We will update the images of progress in the near future.

Your servant
Adhira Devy Dasi
