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.
