All donations support poor children in India through ShantipuriFriends.org
Shantipuri Friends Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit public charity established in 2009 to support the charitable works of Swami Nirvanananda Saraswati in and around the holy city of Puri, Odisha, India. Situated on the shore of the Bay of Bengal, Puri has long been a major pilgrimage destination for India’s devout Hindus. It was in Puri that Swami Nirvanananda — an Italian by birth — took his final vows of renunciation and joined the ancient swami order of monks. Since that time, he has dedicated his life to serving the poor, focusing especially on helping the children of the Mercy Village Leper Colony in Puri. To that end, he has created several projects and around Puri to profoundly impact the lives of those most in need.
All donations to Shantipuri Friends Foundation are tax-deductible in the United States, and directly benefit our various projects in and around Puri.
