Gujarat, India-After an earthquake measuring 7.9 on the Richter scale
devastated this western state of India, humanitarian agencies in cooperation
with the Indian military undertook a massive cleanup, search, and rebuild
More than 20,000 people perished and hundreds of thousands were displaced
in India's biggest natural disaster in recent history.
Food for Life, an international vegan/vegetarian food relief, sent in
volunteers from nearby Baroda and Mumbai, including a team of fifty doctors
and nurses who set up a temporary hospital for the survivors.
In addition, they provided survival kits, fresh water, clothes and more
than one million freshly cooked vegetarian meals.
