Congressmen Gerry Connolly and Raja Krishnamoorthi Applaud Sewa International’s Work
Congressman Gerry Connolly
Congressmen Gerald (Gerry) Connolly of Virginia and Raja Krishnamoorthi of Illinois have recognized, on the floor of the US Congress, Sewa International for its service to underserved communities and for coordinating development projects around the world.

Speaking at the recently concluded session of the 117th Congress, Representative Connolly of Virginia’s 11th District said that “Sewa workers take inspiration from the Hindu principles of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam -- meaning ‘the whole world is one family’ -- and Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah – meaning ‘may all be happy’. These complementary outlooks have driven volunteers to serve humanity in times of distress.”

“Ever since I decided to visit the hospital, I was struck by the enthusiasm of the physicians and the staff. Dr Suresh Jain from Boston accompanied me on this visit. We were received at the airport by two young enthusiastic Sevankur physician coordinators. Enroute to the hospital, we were apprised of the Sevankur Bharat program, the hospital activities, and the social outreach programs, unrelated to healthcare.
