SJRS:Nepal Earthquake Relief Work

Last Saturday Nepal was hit by its worst earthquake in many years and thousands have died and many more displaced.

The Nepal Consulate has appointed a local logistics company to collect items and then deliver it to Nepal.

SJRS is facilitating its members to contribute towards the relief work by setting up a collection center at the Sthanak on Friday 1 May from 10am to 1130 am. One of the items that has been identified in urgent need is ready to eat vegetarian canned food such as soups, baked beans and others. Members can drop off canned food or cash to the Sthanak and our volunteers will then purchase and deliver the items to the logistics company.

Please take note that we are only collecting canned food or cash, kindly refrain from contributing other items.

For those who wish to contribute directly can contact Astrans (S) Pte Ltd – Mr Edmund Chew Mobile: 96317749/96823120. You may also reach directly to Singapore Red Cross online at and support their effort.

For further information please call Commit Member Sandeep Kothari at 9789 1635.

Local Workshop Event (Feb 19-21, 2015)

SJRS Circular Jan2015

“I adore so greatly the principles of the Jain religion, that if there is reincarnation, it is my earnest wish that I be born in a Jain Family.”                    – George Bernard Shaw (Irish playwright)

Out of the prevailing hundreds of religions, why did Shaw talk about being born as a Jain? The Management Committee has planned a 3-days (19-21 Feb 2015) Local Workshop with a theme, ”Jainism for a Better Tomorrow”, during Chinese New Year holidays. This year with a primary intent to enable maximum participation, the Workshop is planned in Singapore with a fresh line-up of distinguished workshop leaders from Mumbai and Dubai.

The program will be catered to each age group of adult, youth and children led by the workshop delegates. It will involve interactive activities in the form of Audio/Visuals, Quiz, and Performances and cover the entire day with breakfast, lunch and high tea. These varieties of interactive sessions promises a spiritual uplifting experience not to be missed.

What is so exciting about the Jain Religion and why should we, who are fortunate to be born as Jains, strive to imbibe it’s teachings to better our lives and give the best of what we have to the world? Join the workshop to know more.

To register please click on the link to enter participant details or call any of our MC members.
