I've been a supporter of the M. A. Math for several years because of the wide range of wonderful work they do. There are very few, if any, organizations that bring help to people in so many different ways. There are the dramatic forms of assistance that get our attention - such as huge efforts of Disaster Relief in response to major catastrophes like the Gujurat earthquake, the Asian Tsumnami, and Hurricane Katrina here in the US. But there are many, many less noticed, less dramatic programs in India that are going on continually: AIMS Hospital which provides state of the art medical care to people who cannot afford it; Mobile Medical Outreach programs that bring medical care to people in rural areas; Home Building programs to provide thousands of homes to people who would not otherwise have them; Free Food programs to feed the poor; Orphanages that give children a wholesome uplifting environment, practiical education, and pride in their culture; Elder Care homes and Hospices for the elderly; Pension programs for destitute women and widows who have no other source of income; Farmer Relief programs to prevent the rise of suicide among farmers whose farms can no longer support their families; Youth Education programs; Technical and Vocational schools; Environmental Awareness and Tree Planting programs - the list goes on and on. These are just some, but not all, of the things M.A. Math is doing. M.A. Math is reaching and helping many, many thousands of people.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
people who were selflessly devoting themselves to the betterment of others.
