Amma’s boundless compassion has taken the form of a growing network of humanitarian initiatives known collectively as Embracing the World.
Embracing the World was conceived by the Mata Amritanandamayi Math (MAM), Amma's India-based humanitarian organization. MAM has been awarded Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council for its efforts to serve the poor and suffering, regardless of their ethnicity, social status, or religion.
They now encompass a vast array of charity projects including a multi-speciality hospital providing free healthcare for the poor, highly regarded and cutting edge educational institutions, vocational training centres, an orphanage, hospices, and evergrowing community welfare services such as the provision of 125,000 free homes for the homeless, 50,000 free meals a month for the poor, monthly pensions for destitute women, free medical clinics, and large scale ongoing disaster relief response including Tsunami relief and aid for hurricane Katrina. Through the example of her own life, Amma has inspired people from all over the world to walk in the path of selfless service and compassion towards all beings.
