Fund raising for flood victims

In January 2005 Guyana experienced the worst flood in living memory. Thousands of people were displaced and lost their livelihoods.
Maha Lakshmi Vidya Bhavan responded by holding a fund raising concert to raise money for the flood disaster victims. The event took place in the presence of the First Lady of Guyana, Mrs. Varshanie Jagdeo and His Excellency, the High Commissioner of Guyana, Shri Laleshwar Singh.
Over £2800 in cash was raised on the evening of the concert. Additionally, hundreds of pounds worth of disposable masks, gloves, aprons, 10,000 paracetomol tablets, 20 fogging machines and substantial amounts of food, clothes and medical supplies were collected and sent though the help of Kids First Fund.
In March 2005, Mrs. Jagdeo paid another visit to our Mandir and expressed her gratitude to the devotees of MLVB, for their hard work and efforts towards the flood disaster relief effort. MLVB continues to pledge their support to aid the relief effort and also to support Kids First Fund.
Kids First Fund is a charity founded by Guyana's First Lady. Its aim is to provide emergency medical care and support such as wheelchairs, x-rays, surgery and arranging flights to and from Guyana for the benefit of sick and underprivileged children in Guyana.
