In response to the devastating earthquake in Pakistan and Kashmir in October 2005, Amma sent two of her disciples, Bri. Rasamrita Chaitanya and Br. Abhayamrita Chaitanya, along with volunteers from the Delhi Ashram, to the region to console victims, distribute food and relief materials, and provide other assistance. Hundreds of blankets sent from Amritapuri were also distributed.
Bri. Rasamrita and the volunteers organized games, painting contests, and other cultural programs to help keep the children active and to focus their minds away from their recent traumatic experience.
Br. Abhaymarita also visited four villages in the region, met with government officials of Kashmir, and expressed the Ashram’s desire to adopt two or three villages.
