FOOD BANK FOR THE POOR, SANGOLDA, GOA has been feeding hundreds if not a few thousand families, dry ration during this 2nd wave .
We will be presenting you our different, trusted and hardworking volunteers who have been working quietly for last many years and more specifically in the last 2 months.
Today we write about Sr Fatima & 500 kits of dry ration given out for June 21 by Sr.
♡♡ Sr Fatima , Superior General , FMCK.
Based in Old Goa .
We as the food bank have been associated with her in Old Goa from early 2018.
I approached Sr and requested her to provide dry ration to poor and needy families in and around old goa.
Basically , Sr has the Space to repack and the man power in the form of Nuns .
Besides she has been feeding quite a no of poor people through our fridge which is installed in her home in old goa
pre pandemic March 2020.
She agreed and she started listing down the poorest of the poor.
Her 2 min video is attached which explains it all.👇
Like bees to honey , so also the poor and needy reached Sr Fatima.
She identified both in equal ratio , Goans & migrants as our major benefactor had requested that dry ration during the pandemic should go to both.
Sr & her team listed down names, addresses and other details and sent us.
We did a random background checking and most were verified to be poor.
For the month of May 2021, we provided ration which amounted to 313 kits being distributed by Sr Fatina to 313 families.
Seeing their commitment, service and paperwork, for June 2021 , we sent to
Sr Fatima at old Goa, dry ration for 500 families as by now word spread and more poor people were at their door step.
Sr Fatima and her team , took the challenge and repacked within 3 days all these 500 kits and with proper care, distrusted most of these kits in their convent at old Goa.
Both months, May & June 2021, Sr Fatima also sent few kits to Pompurba where the Fmck nuns run their school and Panjim , Pinedade Institute, where Fmck nuns are based.
Both places again poor & needy were identified, listed down , we verified and ration was given.
It's amazing feeling , we as the base along our volunteer, ie Sr Fatima and her team have reached out so many poor , homeless, hungry families during these 2 months.
No chest thumping, no sensational promotion, no self glorification , no media coverage but only hard work and commitment to reach out to the poorest of the poor.
You must watch the 2 min video
We thank Sr Fatima & her nuns @ Old Goa for all the support given to serve the poor in the form of dry ration for May & June 21.
Not an easy task, believe me .
For 4 years I have been packing and repacking ration and its very tiring and difficult.
