|I received this letter from a friend.
“Hare Krishna Food for Life Global has established our first base in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic with the help of Ekendra Prabhu and the Hungarian team led by Koda Nitai. Many volunteers will come to the Food for LifeSanto Domingo headquarters in next days.
On Saturday evening we distributed 100 portions of hot meals in the local hospital, organized by Ekendra and local devotees. There are a lot of Haitian refugees here in Santa Domingo and local hospitals and humanitarian aid agencies can not take care of everyone, so Food for Life is providing tasty prasadam (sanctified vegetarian food) for some of them.
Food for Life Global is continuing to receive volunteer applications and donations from all over the world to support our efforts. A new web site will soon be created to fully document the progress of our team.
Your donations are still crucial at this stage of the development and we sincerely thank all who have already come forward to support FFLG. Please continue to give whatever you can and remember: FFL can serve more than 100 meals in a crisis like this for as little as $25. So your dollars will go a long way.
We are also appealing to the public to supply our team with the best quality produce. If you are able to donate bulk organic produce or grains, please contact our office now because we have a plane standing by in Florida ready to fly over supplies.
