Jai Jinendra:

http://www.thaindian.com/newsportal/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/2dee80d615.jpgNews reports on TV and in newspapers have provided us detailed pictures of death, devastation and misery visited upon the poor nation of Haiti. As steadfast believer in Jivdaya, we Jains have moral obligation to help out the survivors of this calamity. JAINA World Community Service is launching a fund drive for the unfortunate victims of this unfathomable tragedy and appeals all the Jains of North America to contribute to this fund which will be used for a humanitarian project we will select and carry out once the relief operations stop and rehabilitation work begins.

As in many instances in the past, JAINA World Community Service (WCS) always gets involved and provides a helping hand whenever a natural or man made disaster strikes in any corner of the earth. Our volunteers work directly in the affected area to deliver aid keeping in mind Jain traditions. Our efforts are always directed towards projects with long term benefits like building a school, hospital, housing or a rehabilitation center. JAINA’s administrative expenses in carrying out any project is limited to 3% of the funds raised compared to up to 40% cost experienced by many relief organizations. Please contribute generously in the spirit of Bhagwan Mahavir’s message of compassion - service to the sick and the poor is the true service to our Lord.

The Survivors urgently need basic necessities like Water, food, Clothes, shelter and Medical Supplies. We have already sent 5,000 hygienic kits with Fairfax County Rescue squads.

Please donate on-line or send your tax-deductible contribution (USA) payable to "JAINA” and mail to:
