Our Current Situation
To help with the impacts of Covid-19 and the fires, people have kindly and generously made donations amounting to £4,786. This includes £752 raised through the Random Acts of Kindness initiative. Thank you to everyone who has generously given.
Gomde's operating income will be severely reduced in 2020 and our reserves significantly depleted due to lack of projected income from onsite retreats.
As a result, we will struggle to meet our basic operational costs (around £3,500 per month) let alone raise the funding needed to complete critical infrastructure investments and continue building the temple.
We have far less operational staff help due to depletion of funds and loss of income, as well as a reduction in volunteer support as a result of the health risks posed by COVID 19.
Following the fire, we now have additional costs to implement a proper ‘fire readiness’ plan, mitigate damage to the flora and fauna and efforts for regeneration, replace and repair land structures, such as tracks, fences, and gates.
The picture looks a little gloomy but as many of you have declared your love and support. Is there a magic key?
How do we make ourselves the drops that fill the bucket?
