by Father Cedrick Sankul for BISMumbai

The Don Bosco Shaikshnik Samajik Kendra Alirajpur reached out to 150 poor tribal families in the forests and hills of Alirajpur District, thanks to the Don Bosco Development Society [DBDS] Mumbai. The DBDS [MumbaiSalesians' Province Planning and Development Office] procured and sent the essential survival provision-commodities containing ration, hygiene kits and toiletries to Alirajpur, as part of the relief-project funded by the Association of Auxilium India based at Seregno-Italy.

In Alirajpur, the Salesians of Don Bosco assisted by the Sister Disciples [bhenjis], and the Village Education Project [VEP] teachers ensured that these provisions, toiletries and hygiene kits were distributed to the most deserving marginalised tribal families in Alirajpur. Some of these relief-kits were distributed to the most needy families in the Don Bosco Campus itself.

Each 15kg provision-kit included sugar, rice, tea-powder, flour, cereals, and biscuits, and is expected to help sustain the families anywhere between one week to a fortnight.
