19 Feb 2019, Mysuru, Karnataka – Bharata Yatra 2019
Amma will give ₹ five lakh ($7,000 U.S.) to the families of each of the 40+ Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) soldiers killed in this week’s terror attack in Jammu-Kashmir’s Pulwama District.
“It is our dharma to support the families of these brave men who died while doing their dharma of protecting the nation,” said Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi. “My heart goes out to their families and loved ones. May we all pray for their peace and wellbeing.”
MAM volunteers will visit personally to each family of CRPF troopers martyred in Pulwama and hand over the cheque.
Amma announced the donation as she was travelling to Mysore, the first stop on the second leg of her 2019 Bharata Yatra.
