Vadodara, May-2020: The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS) launched the second phase of relief work in the slums of Vadodara; mostly reaching to the families of adolescent girls and young women. Through the distribution of relief kits containing ration for a month, toiletries and hygiene kits this second phase will benefit more than 2,000 people. This relief work is financially supported by Mix for Kids, Germany.

On the first day 100 relief kits were distributed to people from the areas of Vishwamitri, Pradeep Chawl and Subhash Nagar. After seeking prior permission from the government Social Defence Officer (SDO), it was suggested that the distribution be held at the main entrance of Don Bosco Snehalaya while providing stipulated time slots to the beneficiaries.
