In observance of World Food Day on 16th October 2021, women’s fellowship teams in Believers Eastern Church Archdiocese of Delhi held food distributions at two places where they provided 200 poor and hungry people with nutritious meals.
The first distribution took place at a slum in Gurgaon district, Haryana. The residents of this slum are migrants from other states and they make a living collecting garbage from streets and landfills.
The diocesan women’s fellowship team along with Sisters of Compassion order visited this slum and distributed 100 food packets among the adults and children there. The recipients were so happy to receive the food packets. They thanked the team for the care and concern shown toward them.
Abdul Khan, an occupant of this slum, is a garbage collector. He said that he and his family felt honored and blessed as they received food packets, because people normally do not enter this slum saying this place is dirty and unhygienic. “I am thankful to you all for visiting us and bringing food for us”, he said.
On the same day, a women’s fellowship team from a local parish cooked fresh meals and served to 100 migrant workers and their families in Sohna district, Haryana. These migrant workers have come from different states to work in the construction sites in the area. They have been provided with temporary shelters to stay with their families. But, they do not have proper electricity facilities.
Previously, on the occasion of World Mosquito Day, the diocesan women’s fellowship team had also organized a mosquito net distribution program in this place.
