Shalom Karunalaya Bhavan in Mallappally, Kerala, the home for 200 elderly residents, is in need of immediate assistance. This facility runs on charity and the COVID situation in Kerala and lockdowns have affected the funds it used to receive from generous people and caterers. This community is struggling to meet the day-to-day needs for food, clothing, medicine and other essentials for its residents. All residents at Shalom Karunalaya Bhavan are elderly who are homeless or abandoned by their families. They had been living in deplorable conditions on the streets with no one to care for them. Shalom Karunalaya Bhavan offered these people a roof over their head, clean clothing, medical support and food for survival.

The organizers are struggling to get food and necessities for these old and sick residents. The approximate daily expenses is Rs. 35,000. Presently they cannot even afford to give tea with milk in it. It is time for us to come together to help, support and let these residents live. This is a second opportunity for these people.

Dear All, FOMAA is teaming up with its member associations to help the handloom weaver families of Balaramapuramalong along with Pathanapuram Gandhibhavan residents. The handloom weavers of Balaramapuram are facing an existential crisis. The pandemic, which imposed a significant toll on many industries, has thwarted the handloom weaving economy to the precipice of calamity. This age-old industry, an integral part of our cultural and geographical heritage, is now at risk of being lost to history as The Shali Clan of Balaramapuram struggles to maintain its footing amidst these trying times. Their inventory of hand-loom apparel and accessories remains unsold due to the resurgence of COVID-19 in the form of the Delta variant which has caused new travel restrictions across India and abroad. Hundreds of families' livelihoods are dependent on the sale of these accumulated inventories of handloom woven goods from the past 2 seasons to begin production for the upcoming year and sustain themselves financially. Members of this community have earned wages and practiced the trade of handloom weaving generation after generation; foregoing new skills to uphold tradition and heritage. Due to the present situation, FOMAA is teaming up with member associations to help purchase or sell these remaining inventories. The entire stock of goods that FOMAA is acquiring will be gifted to the residents of Pathanapuram Gandhibhavan. Pathanapuram Gandhibahavan provides housing and cares for both children who have lost their parents and the elderly. This organization is lead by the kindhearted Dr. Punalur Somarajan. FOMAA has decided to help both the Balaramapuram Weavers Society as well as the residents of Pathanapuram Gandhibhavan by gifting Onakodi (new clothes gifted for Onam) and Onasadhya (feast given during the Onam festival). This effort is intended to provide some relief for both organizations and their members. However, FOMAA believes it is the duty of anyone who can help others to do so wholeheartedly. FOMAA is looking forward to your generous donations to help both groups of people who have been severely affected by present circumstances. We all have lost someone in our life due to illness, accident, natural causes, or COVID-19. We struggle daily to find closure from having lost them whether parents, family members, or friends. We kindly request that you donate an article of clothing to assist in reaching our goals. Collectively, we can quickly provide 1200 residents with Balaramapura weaved attire as Onakodi and an Onasadhya by donating just one article each.
