The Mata Amritanandamayi Math on Wednesday announced a financial aid of Rs one lakh each to the families of Idukki landslide victims.

The announcement was made by Swami Jnanamritananda Puri, who spearheads Math’s activities in Idukki district, in connection with the 60th birthday celebrations of Mata Amritanandamayi.

The families will receive the money on September 27, during Amritavarsham 60, the three-day birthday celebration starting September 25.

On the same day, the Math will also officially launch its Rs 50-crore relief-and-rehabilitation programme for Uttarakhand, through which the Math plans to rebuild 500 homes destroyed in 42 villages in the Himalayan region’s June 2013 flash-floods.

Mata Amritanandamayi Math will also adopt 101 villages across the country in order to make them self-reliant.

Last year during the 59th birthday celebrations of Mata, the Math had provided similar financial aid to victims of the 2012 fireworks-factory explosion in Sivakasi, Tamil Nadu, and the 2012 LPG-tanker explosion in Kannur.

The Math also provides lifetime pension to 59,000 widows and disabled people across the country and scholarships to 41,000 children from impoverished families.

Jnanamritananda said that Mata wanted to reach out to the people of Idukki and show them that the Math was with them during difficult times.
