THEOSOPHICAL ORDER OF SERVICE
The Theosophical Society in Scotland and the Glasgow and Dundee Lodges would like to express their deep gratitude and appreciation to members, for their charitable donations to support the education of children in Nepal.
On the night of the Winter Solstice, 21st Dec 2020, Fotoula Adrimi, long-term member and secretary of the Glasgow lodge, facilitated a beautiful shamanic ceremony online, in celebration of the winter solstice. The ceremony was organised by the Glasgow Lodge but many members throughout Scotland attended. Participants donated to a fund that pays for orphan children and those unable to afford the fees, to attend school, including school uniforms, books and shoes for these kids, as without these they cannot attend school. Last year 14 children were supported. The Glasgow Lodge has been supporting this initiative since 2015, mainly from its own funds, following the earthquake in Nepal, when the school buildings themselves were damaged and many families were severely affected.
All donations are transferred directly to the Shree Saraswotih.s. School. There are no intermediary organisations, and all the money is spent on poor and orphan children. We are incredibly grateful for everyone’s kindness, love, and generosity. The total amount received was £1,580.00 which is wonderful. The School, the children, the Glasgow Lodge consider this to be a miracle.
Thank you to everyone for your heartfelt support.
With gratitude and love.
