The government has created a separate section for Hindu Priests in Manik Farm, where thousands of families have moved into temporary shelters. There are currently about one hundred Hindu priests in this special section.
When they left the war zone a few weeks ago they left all of their prior belongings behind. Most of them came with only the clothes they were wearing. We were very happy to provide seventy-five priests with the robes that they wear to perform Puja or religious ceremonies. Sometimes it is these small simple deeds that bring the smiles of gratitude.
