Dear Friends in Iyengar Yoga,
Many of you want to know how to help our friends in India who are facing a dire situation with the COVID-19 pandemic right now.
We have reached out to the Iyengar family for guidance about where and how to give and they have expressed their genuine appreciation for our concern and care and noble intentions to help. Although the needs are diverse and it is tough to prioritize or choose, we have compiled a list of 7 organizations that you can donate to. We may be feeling powerlessness as we read the headlines, but we are not helpless.
Here are some ways to help: here is a LINK to the 6 top NGO’s in India providing assistance.

Additional Organizations to Consider Supporting
Fundraiser by the IYNAUS (Iyengar Yoga National Association of the United States)
The situation in India is dire due to COVID-19. When an IYNAUS member learned that we were planning to raise funds for UNICEF’s efforts to slow the spread of and help those affected by COVID-19 in India, they graciously agreed to match up to $7,500 in donations.
To kick start this effort, IYNAUS is donating $2,000 (50% of the general donations IYNAUS received from January to April 2021).
Help us raise the remaining $5,500 by May 31, 2021 by donating today. We will give every dollar raised directly to UNICEF. Let’s work together to generate $15,000 for India, a country that has given the worldwide Iyengar Yoga Community so much.
