The distribution program was organized to help the poor and needy families who have been affected due to the second wave of Covid-19 and are facing a shortage of food items.
The priests and parish members visited the needy families and distributed relief packets to them, following the Covid-19 protocol. Each family received a week’s worth of dry ration kit consisting of 3 kg rice, 1 kg pulses, 1 kg potatoes, 1 bottle of mustard oil, and a mask.
Sajal Basumatary, a recipient, shared about the problems that his family has been going through during the lockdown. He goes to a river to catch fish, which he sells and earns income to meet the needs of his family. He said that the relief team was God-sent, who have saved his family from starving. He extended his heartfelt thanks to the Believers Eastern Church priests and believers for their love and concern towards his family.
“I am a daily wage laborer and used to work hard every day to feed my family, but due to this pandemic there is no work available for me now. So I and my family were really having a difficult time. Receiving these dry rations is a great help for us”, said another villager by name Sudhon Boshumatary.
