Region 1 - The Spires: Swamis Love to the Homeless in Streatham

20th March 2016

3 centres/groups share the task of providing ingredients and sending volunteers to cook the curry on a monthly basis and also provide fruit on a fortnightly basis at Spires, a South London based Charity helping the homeless and disadvantaged, that provides support to anyone who is in a state of crisis.

The benefits are a hot vegetarian meal for those in need which is cooked with love, Healthy fruit for them to take away, a respite for Spires staff / volunteers who get a break from cooking, a fun-filled morning for us and a great sense of satisfaction for everyone participating.

Here is an account from 3 of our volunteers who participated for the very first time.

“First of all, we would like to thank you for giving us the opportunity to be a part of this seva activity at Spires. In one word, the experience was ‘Overwhelming’".

“It was one of the best spent afternoon for us this year so far. Since all 3 of us have neither been at this activity nor cooked for such a large number, we started with a mental prayer to Swami to help us through this without any hassle. It was a great learning experience with a lot of spiritual talks. As always, Swami ensured the required quantity was ready by the end of 3 hours”.
