What we do
At Seva we support projects and acts of love, care and compassion that help people in need from Los Angeles to South Africa to India and Tibet. These projects including bringing food and medical care to Tibetan orphans in the Himalayas; caring for children who are suffering from HIV and AIDS in South Africa; organizing food, blankets or ten thousand pairs of socks for the homeless in Los Angeles; and teaching yoga and meditation to at risk teenagers.
Seva projects are started by individuals who are inspired to serve by something they have experienced, witnessed or read about and by a desire to serve. Often they begin as small scale projects with low overhead – where the dollars, resources and service go directly to those in need. They are run by volunteers with a passion to do Seva and make an impact in the world that grows out of their own spiritual or religious practice, yoga or meditation – knowing that the greatest gift of all goes to those who perform Seva.

FREE FOOD KITCHEN
- September, 2020
- South Africa
Free Food Kitchen is a Project to help the most destitute Communities in the Settlements outside of Cape Town, South Africa, in the middle of Winter there, who are without food or the means to procure food since there is not any work available due to the pandemic. We are providing food for the local women to cook and to share with the Community, especially with the children and the elders. At this time we have funding for only three meals a week. In addition to these three weekly meals, we’re really not sure where else they are able to eat anything. Any contribution will be so helpful. These Communities live at less than a subsistent level without running water and without any plumbing. Please visit their website to see the work that is unfolding. Gardens are being planted so that they might grow their own vegetables, and become self-sustaining. These people are loving, high-spirited people who are good workers. Right now they just need our help.
