HSS Serving Katrina Victims

Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS) expresses heartfelt sympathy for the
victims of hurricane Katrina, one of the worst natural disasters in
the USA. HSS urges all Hindus in America to rise to the occasion by
addressing needs of the people suffered by hurricane Katrina.

HSS has appealed its hundreds of volunteers in all 90 chapters of HSS
to help through collecting donations, canned foods, cookies, crackers,
bottled water, juices, medical supplies and blankets. HSS requests all
monetary contributions directed to Sewa International or American Red
Cross. Dozens of volunteers from Houston, including children attending
several Balagokulams, have already started the collection. The HSS
office at Keshav Smrithi, 4018 Westhollow Pkwy, Houston, TX 77082 has
been designated as the contact point for all relief efforts.

HSS is working with authorities in Houston in meeting the immediate
needs of the displaced people arriving from New Orleans. The
government officials and American Red Cross have opened various
shelters in Houston. HSS volunteers will serve in these local Red
Cross shelters in Houston and other area. Volunteers are also
coordinating with other shelters and motels, which have become
temporary homes for victims. Volunteers are also contacting
physicians, asking them to contribute their time and medical supplies
and businesses to provide material help.
