Natural disaster relief
People get so helpless when they lose everything in a natural disaster. As all of them are victims no one is there to help people in such situations. According to the teachings of the Gauthama Buddha, this is a perfect time to help people.
Our past projects

In April, 2020 we organized a fundraising to help the low-income people in Sri Lanka during lockdown period of covid-19 pandemic. Generous donors donated CAD $ 4000 (SRL 540,769). All the donations were used to buy fresh vegetables from village-farmers across the Island. Then they were placed in bags by the volunteers of Shraddha Charity Organization and vegetable bags were distributed among low-income people around the country. A group of generous people brought their vehicles to helped SCO to distribute vegetable bags to the hand of those who were in need. Many village-farmers and many innocent people were much relieved!
