                   Subject:  FW: AFTER EARTH QUAKE


                   JSCA TO ALL MAHATMA

                   HAVE VISITED MANY AFFECTED VILLAGES IN SAURASHTRA AND KUTCH. SUPPLIED
                   BLANKETS, FOOD, CLOTH, TENT CLOTH, MEDICINES ETC. ANUPBHAI HAS ALREADY
                   STARTED WORKING IN ANJAR, KUTCH.  A SEPARATE TEAM OF APTAPUTRAS AND MAHATMAS
                   R GOING ALL AROUND  TO SUPPLY BASIC MATERIALS AND MOST IMPORTANTLY TO ASSESS
                   THE SITUATION AND FIND OUT THE BEST WAY TO HELP.

                   SCENERIO IN CITY IS SUCH THAT EVEN RICH FAMILY R NOT STAYING IN THEIR HOUSE
                   AS THEY FEAR FRESH TREMOR MIGHT COME IN NIGHT AND BLDG MAY NOT WITHSTAND
                   MORE TREMORS. SINCE 26 JAN MOST OF THE PEOPLE  SLEEP OUTSIDE IN OPEN GROUND.
                   SO THEY WANT TENT CLOTH, BLANKET IMMEDIATELY TO SLEEP OUTSIDE COMFORTABLY.
                   WHILE FOOD, MEDICINES AND OTHER THINGS R ALREADY BENG TAKEN CARE BY MANY
                   CHARITABLE INSTITUTION V R SENDING EVERYDAY BLANKETS AND TENT MATERIAL.

                   SCENERIO IN MANY VILLAGES R SUCH THAT  BASIC THINGS R ABUNDUNT IN SUPPLY.
                   THEY R BEING OFFERED MORE THAN WHAT THEY NEED. MOREOVER THEY R FROM GOOD
                   FAMILY SO IF V GIVE THEM USED CLOTHS OR FOOD THEY WILL NOT ACCEPT. THEY R
                   MORE CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR HOUSES, AS MANY OF THEM NEEDS COMPLETE REBUILDING
                   WHILE SOME NEEDS REPAIRING. BECAUSE OF BAD MONSOON FOR THE LAST 2 YRS THEY
                   DON'T HAVE ENOUGH SAVING TO USE FOR THEIR HOUSES.

                   INSTEAD OF TAKING CARE OF TEMPORARY NEEDS V THINK THAT V WILL DO A GOOD
                   SERVICE TO HUMANITY IF V TAKE CARE OF THEIR HOUSING NEEDS WHICH WILL GO LONG
                   WAY IN GIVING THEM COMFORTABLE LIFE AND THIS MAY ALSO BRING THEM TO DADA
                   GNAN.

                   SO V HAVE DECIDED TO ADOPT 1 OR 2 VILLAGES OR MORE DEPENDING UPON
                   AVAILIBILITY OF FUNDS. DETAIL R

                   RAJPAR:
                   A VILLAGE NR. MORBI CONSISTING 450 HOUSES. 150 NEEDS COMPLETE REBUILDING
                   WHILE 300 NEEDS MINOR TO MAJOR REPAIRING. 30-40 HOUSES R OF MAHATMAS.
                   DEPENDING UPON FUND AVAILIBILITY V CAN THINK OF EITHER ADOPTING WHOLE
                   VILLAGE OR JUST TAKING CARE OF MAHATMAS HOUSES.

                   KHERALA:
                    A VILLAGE NR. MORBI CONSISTING OF 150 HOUSES, ALL NEEDS REBUILDING FROM
                   SCRATCH. THEY R READY TO START FRESH ON NEARBY NEW LAND AND V CAN DEFINITELY
                   THINK ABOUT ADOPTING THIS VILLAGE.

                   LOANS TO REPAIR HOUSES:  
                   SOME MIDDLE CLASS MAHATMAS WILL ALSO NEED LOAN TO REPAIR THEIR HOUSES.
                   GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE:
                   AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT HAS BEEN MADE TODAY THAT ANY DONATIONS GIVEN TO
                   CHARITABLE INSTITUTION REGISTERED UNDER INCOME TAX ACT WILL BE 100% TAX
                   FREE. THIS IS VERY IMP ANNOUNCEMENT, NOW WHOEVER WANT TO GIVE DONATION IN
                   WHITE MONEY THEY WILL BE ABLE TO GIVE IT TO OUR INSTITUTION.
                   V R ALSO REGISTERING OUR INSTITUTION WITH GOVERNMENT FOR QUAKE RELIEF SO V
                   CAN GET EXEMPTION FROM VARIOUS TAXES WHICH R LEVIED WHILE V BUY BLDG.
                   MATERIALS.

                   AT PRESENT V R ALREADY SUPPLYING BASIC MATERIALS TO ALL NEEDY PEOPLE IN MANY
                   VILLAGES, BUT OUR THRUST WILL BE ON REBUILDING HOUSES IN AS MANY VILLAGES AS
                   POSSIBLE.

                   AGAIN GOING TOMMORROW TO MORBI TO OVERSEE CORRECT DISTRIBUTION OF CLOTHS,
                   FOOD, BLANKETS, TENT CLOTH ETC.
