Amrita Australia’s new support initiative for the homeless started with two projects in conjunction with National Homelessness Week 2019 Australia (4th -10th August)
Project one: Distribution of food and comfort parcels to those sleeping rough in Melbourne city.
On Thursday 8th August, Amrita volunteers walked the streets of Melbourne bringing comfort to many on a very, very cold night. Nearly 80 packages of socks, beanies, gloves, hygiene products and snacks were handed out.
Project two: Non- perishable food items and hygiene product donations were sent to the Salvation Army Community Supermarket (a collection and distribution centre of free food and basic essentials for individuals and families in need) in Carrum, Victoria.
