Here at Profugo, we believe that overcoming obstacles cannot be accomplished outside of community. This year has been an exceptionally difficult year for many of us as we’ve faced restrictions and changes to our daily norms due to the global Covid-19 pandemic. Even so, families in rural communities, face challenges on a completely different scale without stable sources of food, reliable utilities, education, income, and with strict restrictions on mobility. Information is not always readily available, creating confusion and stress. In addition to this, the months of June through August bring intense wind, rain, and flooding, due to the Monsoon season.
During calamities and hardships, the human spirit is tested. Some people respond by becoming protective of their resources and others who share their often, limited supplies with others. Acts of kindness are the powerful rays of hope that push the storm clouds away. I have personally witnessed so many examples of selflessness and care during the past 6 months stateside, as well as in rural communities like Wayanad, India. Caring for the needs of others is reciprocal as well as infectious!
This October, help Profugo continue our mission of resourcing and empowering communities! Your financial contribution will allow Profugo to continue our important work in sustainable community development, with programs in youth development, social enterprise development, natural resource management, sustainable agriculture, and health & wellness. In 2021, Profugo is looking to increase our capabilities in Wayanad, while also scouting for a location for additional Centers of Development. To achieve these goals and advance change, we depend on the action by partners like you. Please consider making a commitment to rise for and rise with Profugo. Join us as a global neighbor in furthering a better quality of life for all.
