This just came into the inbox. If everyone chips in a little then we can help them pay for medical costs.
If you want to use a credit card, or avoid costly international fees, you can make a donation into my PayPal account and, as Gopala is my witness, every penny will go to Braja and Jahnu (except for the small percentage PayPal takes as a transaction fee.)
Dear Friends of Braja Sevaki and Jahnudvipa Prabhus,
Hare Krishna. Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
For now the general news about Braja and Jahnu is good. As you may well know, Braja is back in Mayapur and, for the time being, recuperating at my house. She’s still very sore all over but her face is improving every day. And today she wanted cheese and tomato toast for breakfast so things are looking up :0)
Jahnu was moved to a private room yesterday and will have a 24 hour attendant with him as Braja is not able to be there. He still has one chest drain in and was sedated again because of agitation. The doctors say this is normal in these situations. But hopefully, being in a private room will be more peaceful for him and he can make speedy progress. He still needs many of your prayers.
The cost of the medical treatment so far has been upwards of $20,000 and Jahnu is not out of there yet. So it could be as much as $30,000 by the end. Many of you have enquired as to how you may offer some financial assistance for the medical expenses. After discussing it here and understanding that some of you may be concerned as to where the money might go, we decided it would be best for donors to send the money for Braja and Jahnu directly to Braja’s personal account.

Anybody sending a donation should let me know by email as to when and how much you have sent so we can keep track of it.
There will be separate information for donations to help the driver but I haven’t been given them yet. I’ll send them out as soon as I can.
Braja and Jahnu are so grateful for all the love being sent their way. They feel that their recoveries have been expedited by all your love and prayers. Thank you on their behalf.
