Mumbai, October 2020:
The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS) helped 200 migrant workers residing in Antop Hill; by distributing relief kits containing ration, hygiene kits and toiletries. A total number of 2,500 poor and needy in the city of Mumbai and in the state of Madhya Pradesh will be helped through this new relief-work project funded by the Association of Auxilium India (Seregno, Italy).

Fr Rolvin D’Mello (Executive Director – DBDS) thanked: the president and the board members, as well as the friends and supporters of this association in Italy for their financial support in this venture. Social distancing and other government compliances were strictly adhered to during this entire process. “These migrant workers chose to stay in the city in spite of the lockdown - but they had no jobs and hence no money to buy food for themselves and their little children. We have been supporting them for the last seven months,” said Fr Rolvin while speaking on the occasion.

Since April 2020 we have touched the lives of 6,32,683 poor and needy – providing for their basic needs during this challenging time of Covid-19 pandemic.
