Mata Amritanandamayi Centre in America would be donating $1 million
in aid to help victims of Hurricane Katrina that devastated New
Orleans, Louisiana and coastal areas of Mississippi and Albama.

Amritanandamayi told reporters in Kollam, Kerala that the Math had
a number of centres in the United States, including one at
California.

There were also 200 'Satsang Samhitis' throughout the US comprising
supportive devotee volunteers.

Soon after the hurricane struck, Amritanandamayi had sent the head
of the centre in California, Bramhachari Dayamitra Chaitanya, to
the affected areas to assess the best ways for organisation to help
hurricane victims.

The main areas in which the Mata Amritanandamayi Centre there had
extended help were through provision of food, clothing and school
supplies as well as providing emotional support, the Mata said.
