“एक हाथ हमारा और हज़ार उसके… मन संतोष से भर जाता है जब भूखे व्यक्तियों को भोजन मिलता है।
धन्यवाद प्रभु हमें यह अवसर दिया ।” – अपर्णा जी
Anna Daan is an outreach initiative taken by Rejuvenation to contribute to Zero Hunger. Under this initiative, Rejuvenators aim at feeding the underprivileged by reaching out to various small dingy bastis, distant areas and jhuggi jhopries . There the food packets are distributed along with fruits and healthy cookies. Time to time, Rejuvenation goes to shelter homes or hospitals to donate food along with its other services. It also donate resources to organizations so that they continue to do the good work and contribute to Zero Hunger with us.
This year ( 2018), starting from mid October, Aparnaji has taken a new step to distribute free Guru Prashad in the form of complete meals, with which she aims to feed around 100 people per day . Rejuvenators have joined hands for this noble cause and since then a Bhandara is being organised every week at Shiv Mandir, Joppling Road, that serves around 700 people. In these Bhandaras cooked under the watchful guidance of Rejuvenators, with quality grains, oil and vegetables the food is distributed to all without the discretion of cast, creed or colour.
We, at Rejuvenation, are conscious about hygiene and quality and also work on “no plastic” awareness. So food is served only on “pattal” or in other eco friendly hygienic way. We take care of “no wastage and no littering” too.
Rejuvenation’s initiative fed over 10000 people last year and aim to reach over 36500 next year. This multifold development was possible by the help of people who offer their services in term of monetary help or seva and work hard both on and off the scene.
Anna Daan is taken as Mahadaan in Manav Dharm ( humanity ). Giving back to the society for fulfilling the basic needs of deprived humans is a big part of spirituality as good deeds helps in moral, social and spiritual advancement as well.
One can join in this Maha Yagya by contributing as minimum as 600rs per month, which is enough to fill around 30 bellies for the month ( one person per day ). Or they can give as much as they wish to. One can also donate ata, oil, daal (good quality products only) etc .
