On April 27, multiple devastating tornadoes hit the Southeastern United States with Alabama being the hardest hit. In the Alabaman cities of Tuscaloosa and Birmingham, multiple lives were lost and hundreds of families were affected. Since electrical grids were damaged and potable water was difficult to find, relief efforts were hampered. It was in this time of need that the volunteers of BAPS Charities provided help to the victims of these powerful and deadly tornadoes.

Based on the relief and rehabilitation experience of previous disasters, Hurricane Ike (2008), Hurricane Katrina (2005), South Asian Tsunami (2004-5) and the Gujarat, India earthquake (2001), volunteers from Birmingham, Atlanta and surrounding centers marshaled into action to provide food, fresh drinking water and shelter to the affected people.

BAPS Charities served freshly prepared hot meals from Monday, May 2 through Friday, May 6. In this time frame of five days, BAPS Charities’ was able to reach out and serve over 2,500 people. Meals were being served at four relief centers around the City of Tuscaloosa.

In recognition and appreciation of the effort, hard work, kindness, and compassion shown by the volunteers of BAPS Charities, the Mayor of the city of Tuscaloosa, Mr. Walt Maddox, commented, “I would like to acknowledge BAPS Charities for their remarkable efforts here in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. They have given so much time and energy to the communities in need in the aftermath of the tornadoes of April 27. I cannot thank this organization enough for its support and generosity.”

Most recently, BAPS Charities raised funds for the Japan Earthquake and Disaster. In 2010, BAPS Charities raised and donated $63,000 to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in support of the Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund. BAPS Charities has engaged in natural disaster relief work in the US, parts of Africa, Europe, and South Asia.

It’s a lovely book. It feels energetically clear and light. It’s easy to read, dip in and out and most importantly it offers information without fluff! Blessings on this project.
