Dear Friends,

 

In the 3 months following the impact of Cyclone Thane, Auroville has received an incredible outpouring of support in many forms from all around the world. We would like to express our deep gratitude for the good will, material/financial contributions and touching personal concerns, thoughts and prayers that have helped us in our efforts towards restoration in and around Auroville.

Please keep in mind that these figures are dynamic and are changing every day. In addition to the above amounts, many individuals, units and communities have contributed directly towards Cyclone Relief in various ways such as money spent to help a worker repair his/her home, donations from units or individuals to help a specific Aurovilian, or other financial assistance that was not requested from the common Auroville pot. We are still in the process of gathering information about this category of contribution. We trust that the needs and available resources will continue to keep pace with each other, as they have done so far.

 

Thank you all, wherever you are, for your efforts, patience, understanding and continued support!

 
With love and gratitude,
Auroville’s Cyclone Response Team
