In mid-August, the Conwy Branch of the TS in Wales, supported by members from Bangor Lodge, Chester, Portmadog and Holyhead, held a TS Awareness Day. Over 40 non-members turned up to find out about Theosophy. A table was loaded with lots of items for sale with funds going to TOS projects. Bravo!

TOS in Delhi, India

 

TOS Deepti Group, Noida, Delhi NCR, India has launched a fully fledged Dental Care Unit for the rural and economically disadvantaged children of Noida and surrounding rural areas. The unit, probably the first of its kind, was inaugurated by Brother Birendra Bhattacharyya, National Director of TOS in India on 25 July 2009. Scores of children in the neighborhood who have no access to dental care will benefit immensely. A full time doctor will also be organising ‘free dental inspection camps’ in the schools for economically disadvantaged children, supported by the TOS Delhi Region.

Members of the Western Australian TOS group based in Perth are having an energetic year supporting a number of projects while promoting the First Object of the Theosophical Society. Their service work is also building their group’s sense of fellowship and unity.

Once again they’ve been raising funds for the TOS Pakistan Home School Project and the Golden Link College in the Philippines. They have also been raising funds to supply birthing kits to women in Afghanistan. It is amazing that such a simple kit saves lives, but the statistics show that 2,000 birthing kits will save approximately 130 mothers’ lives. In this activity they have been partnering with SAWA (Support Association for the Women in Afghanistan).

Another of their projects is focused on a local Aboriginal women’s refuge. On Theosophical Society meeting nights, volunteers busily knit squares to make beautiful blankets for the women.
