"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

The January 26th, 2001 earthquake prompted Manav Sadhna to work on rehabilitation in Kutch. After visiting about a dozen villages Manav Sadhna selected Ludiya, a village in the Kutch district, as it is inhabited by a downtrodden and backward community of 2,300 people. They applied for funds for construction of 100 Bhungas with toilet facilities each costing Rs. 26,000, at the total cost of Rs.2,600,000. AID-Maryland and AID-MN discussed this project in their respective groups and approved funding for building 50 Bhungas and toilet facilities.
