BIS #5951DON BOSCO SNEHALAYA REACHES OUT DURING COVID-19
by Father Sunil Pinto for BISMumbai
The community of Don Bosco Snehalaya reached out to around 55 families/households, approximately 275 persons on 07 May 2020, distributing groceries & toiletries as part of the relief kits. Some of the senior boys of the house helped in the packing and distribution. Most of these families were from slums in and around the Snehalaya campus vicinity. The poor families were identified and coupons distributed with the specific day/date. The venue for distribution was at the Snehalaya main gate. This was entirely an initiative of the community.
Previously the Salesians at Snehalaya had reached out to 400 households in the slums of Vishwamitri. This was through the initiative of the Don Bosco Development Society Mumbai [DBDS], Mumbai.
