The Oneness-Heart-Tears and Smiles is a heart-to-heart humanitarian service coordinated by the international Sri Chinmoy Centre, connecting the lives and hearts of people in over 150 nations.
Tears and smiles are common to us all. As we share the tears of our suffering human family, we strive together to transform these tears into smiles.
The Oneness-Heart-Tears and Smiles relies on the goodwill and heart-power of schoolchildren, families, community groups, service clubs, companies, hospitals and corporations for the resources needed for our programs. Emergency services focus on the supply of food, clothing, medical supplies and shelter. Ongoing programs provide equipment and supplies to schools, hospitals and community groups, and medical and educational training.
Each program is carefully tailored to suit local conditions. The service has no political, religious or corporate affiliation. All participants are volunteers who coordinate the donation, collection, storage, transport and distribution of essential supplies and services. There are no paid or full-time positions, with volunteers offering their hearts’ service for one reward - a broadening smile on the face of humanity.
From Australia The Oneness-Heart-Tears and Smiles is most active in the South Pacific, and has also coordinated large shipments of medical supplies into southern Africa and Asia.
