Pooja Khanna Medical Emergency Fund

We would like to extend heartfelt gratitude to Pooja Khanna who has set up a medical emergency fund for the poor at Food for Life Vrindavan. Pooja has given $2500 for any medical emergencies that may come our way, so that we are able to help people immediately, without waiting for the funds to be raised. Pooja has been a long time supporter of FFLV. She has a heart of gold and many times she has gone out of her way to help the people, especially the children of Vrindavan. No matter how busy she may be, or what corner of the world she may be, she always finds time to come to Vrindavan to meet the children personally. We really appreciate her help and send her best wishes.  Regards Team FFLV.
