AMURT (Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team) is an international organisation for disaster relief, rehabilitation and development cooperation. Our guiding principle is the belief that a team of highly motivated and dedicated staff can make an important difference to the lives of countless individuals living in extreme poverty. The success of this principle has inspired thousands of people in many countries all over the world to work tirelessly together in order to alleviate the suffering and ameliorate the living conditions of such individuals.

            Realizing the necessity of rendering relief, rescue and rehabilitation during natural or man-made disasters, Shrii Prabhat Rainjan Sarkar founded a global body called the Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team (AMURT) in India and speeded all over the world. It is also registered in Nepal as charity no. 931/054-055  and dedicated the service to the humanity of our planet. Since then  it has been working hard and has earned tremendous goodwill in the society. It has been recognized as a unique disaster relief agency in the world for its non-discriminating approach to service of the people and its quick response in organizing the relief operations in the farthest corners of the world.

 

           AMURT's social service programmes include: disaster relief, free education, welfare project for the rehabilitation of children and women, medical and health care and long-term multi-purpose, self-sustainable development projects.

 

          AMURT is a non-sectarian organization and does not discriminate people on the grounds of gender, race, color, age, religion or origin. During disaster AMURT renders immediate medical care, food and clothing, rehabilitation and long term development including shelter, education, stress management, community services, etc. AMURT depends primarily on voluntary help both full and part-time and has a large volunteer base to draw. AMURT provides and encourages disaster service training in collaboration with other relief agencies. AMURT also provides long-term development assistance and sustainable economic programs to help underprivileged and disaster affected people.

 

          AMURT is dedicated to improve the quality of life of the poor and the underprivileged people of the world. To serve in times of calamities and provide relief and rehabilitation to the victims of natural and man-made disasters, is its Pra'n'a Dharma (Credo).

 

         AMURT believes that the best assistance is to encourage and enable people to restore faith in them and to help them their lives in a better way. Hence, AMURT helps individuals harness their innate potentialities and utilize their own resources for securing the basic necessities of life and gaining greater economic, social and spiritual fulfillment.
