The SN OM Trust’s unstinting support to Sankara Nethralaya has been acknowledged yet again! The Human Services Committee of the Shiva Vishnu temple at California have awarded the SN OM Trust a grant-in-aid of $1,000 for providing free ophthalmic treatment to poor patients at Sankara Nethralaya, Chennai, India.
This is the fourth time in a row that the Trust is receiving the grant in recognition for the support it renders to Sankara Nethralaya. The Trust was awarded a similar grant in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Every year, the Shiva Vishnu temple selects a few social service organisations and awards them a grant to support their cause. Varsha Upadhye, SN OM Trustee, California, represented the Trust and received the grant at a function on May 15, 2010.
