Covid Care Diary: Loyola School Children Receive the Last but Large Stock

MSJ Bangalore: 22nd May 2020
Yes, we have done it! We are closing our shop!! In fact, on 21st May 2020 we concluded our Covid care kit relief work. We finished with our supplies. Since 28th March 2020, we have been doing this work of reaching the most vulnerable, deserving and needy daily wage earners and migrant labourers and their families during this Covid lockdown.

On Thursday, 21st May, was indeed a big day for all the children of Loyola School. They had come to the school with their parents not to attend classes but take home something very special which they and their families need at this hour: The Covid care kit relief supplies. In fact, they had come with their small bags. But for their surprise they had either 25 kilos of rice or ragi (Finger Millet),  4 kilos of potato, 3 kilos of dal/lentils, 4 pieces of bathing soap, 2 kilos each of brinjal, cabbage, carrot, pumpkin and radish, 1 kilo each sugar, salt, and half a kilo each of Masala powder and tindi powder,  2 litters of oil and other stuff to carry home. In total 1500 large food kits were distributed. It was such a joy to see on their faces while carrying those big bags with large amount of stuff to keep them free from worries and stress for some more days.

"A gift that touches hearts ignites the soul with flames of passion." "The greatest happiness in the world is in helping the people you don't know and seeing them happy." Yes dear fathers,I have come to place a humble words of gratitude to you
all being the reason for someone's smile and serving the less fortunate with an untiring efforts.YOU our dear fathers are Christ like in your service to the people and you are courageous and conscientious enough to venture into the real actions instead of meekly hoping and praying for an illusory Divine intervention.If everyone has the madness for doing good like you then I am sure there wouldn't be any misery in the world.My special thanks to Fr.Olvin for playing the role of an Angel for bringing the good tidings of your wonderful service to the crazy world that needs transformation to form a good human society.
