The MA Math is an amazing organization with a membership that spans scores of countries around the world. 100s or 1000s of volunteers from around the world take part in numerous humanitarian projects/activities that include free housing, free education, free medical/hospital facilities for poor/needy people affected by natural and various other calamities and other nature-friendly projects. People with all kinds of background, from all cultures work together, forgetting their differences and truly attracted ONLY by their love for mankind and nature.

Mata Amritanandamayi, the founder and cornerstone for MA Math is truly a living saint. Her foundation is involved with every aspect of humanitarianism needed in India and the World today. She has founded hospitals, schools, orphanages, built homes for the homeless and feeds the hungry every day. She helps widows and other poor women to make a living for themselves and their children. She has also started a program to help the families of farmer-suicide and suicide prevention. They are involved in disaster relief of all kinds, most famously after the Tsunami in Southern India. It is impossible to do justice to this invaluable organization in this short story. I personally have given many hours of my time here the US to sorting donated medical supplies to ship to India for her hospitals and clinics and for disaster relief. Working with them is a wonderful feeling, full of love and devotion to helping our fellow 'man'. Mata Amritanandamyi herself is pure love and it pervades every aspect of the organization. Peace!

The Mata Amritanandamayi Math (MA Math) is easily one of the most dedicated non-profit organizations that is bringing hope and change to the most unfortunate all over India. Their humanitarian efforts are extremely diverse - ranging from disaster relief, free medical treatment, schools in rural areas, orphanages, pension for widows, training for the handicapped and much much more. The MA Math has constructed more than 40,000 homes for the poor all over India. The most notable attribute of the MA Math is that it is run entirely by volunteers. Hence most of the 100 paise of every Rupee donated goes directly to the needy. This is in contrast to a number of other NGOs that have a high overhead. A key differentiating quality of the MA Math is that it has continued to support the communities affected by disasters (like the 2003 Tsunami in my home state of Kerala) long after other government and NGO organizations have stopped. Through education, vocational training, medical camps, reconstruction work, sponsored weddings, financial aid, the MA Math has help rebuid entire communities. The MA Math continues to be my favorite for any donations I make. I am assured that my donations will be put to the best possible use.

.. truly phenomenal. None are paid any remuneration. Infact they spend their own money to travel to and provide relief to the disaster areas. It is amazing to see volunteers from all ages, professions, languages, castes together embodying true "Seva"

Since me an my husband have become devotees of Amma,all the hurdles in our life big or small have been overcome without any troubles. We never went to Amma with any expectation but it seemed that Amma took care of all our needs without being asked. Seeing Amma's humanitarian activities and her dedication towards serving all human beings has motivated us also to engage in selfless service which gives us immense satisfaction and peace of mind.

Volunteering at Amma's Mother's Kitchen in collaboration with our church for over 7 years has been a life changing experience. The homeless are no longer invisible - we see ourselves reflected in them - and we can be change we want to occur in the world in the world one meal at a time. Amma's message is to serve each meal with love. We are a kitchen, we are a community of diverse faiths spanning the generations all called to answer the voice of hunger.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the sense of family and community that we invite into the kitchen when we come together each Friday to prepare and cook a meal. That family is then extended to the guests that we serve a meal.

It is amazing to offer selfless service under the auspices of Mata Amritanandamayi Math. While in India, I served by preparing vegetables for the western canteen which served people, free of charge, who were participating in MA Math activities. I also transcribe for publication from cassette tapes of satsangs by one of Amma's first and main swamis. I spent many hours in this service. The organization is efficient, comprehensive in their scope of services, carefully managed with direct oversight by Amma. There is a high level of accountability instilled in volunteers.

Amma's organization Mata Amritanandamayi Math has been giving a helping hand to millions across the world. Amma's compassion has won many hearts, wiped the tears of many people who are suffering. Still i recollect the sounds of tragedy during Tsunami, the efficacy of M.A.Math was undoubtedly proved during that time. I realized the importance of time, hardwork and selflessness after i got more and more involved with the organization. This organization is a living example of the saying 'Hands that help are holier than lips that pray!' . The volunteers in this organization not only pray for the world peace but put them in action by selflessly serving others. I just feel, i am so blessed to be part of this organization and what more..my life is to serve amma and her charitable works.

Amma's humanitarian efforts are so far flung I find it a challenge to do them all justice. Amma is my teacher. She has taught me about unconditional love and selfless service to others. Her disaster relief efforts have aided people in the United States (Katrina victims), as well as tsunami victims in India. Her undying support to starving farmers in India who feel that their only resort is suicide is inspirational in how she holds hope out for others who have given up. Her work with poverty stricken children all over the world moves me to tears. Her care homes for children, the orphanages, hospitals, homes and slum renovations truly show her commitment to making a better life for all beings. Her teachings are based in love and respect for all peoples which causes a huge ripple throughout the world.
