This Covid 2nd wave has been really bad and sad. 
We saw poverty, sickness, hunger, desperation, etc as our volunteers went around distributing these 1650 kits to the same families last 3 months. 
We are proud to have supported these same 1650 families for the last 3 months. 
As I write this post, most volunteers are still packing dry ration for July 21 which will be delivered in a day or two .
Our strength lies in our VOLUNTEERS & I as a TRUSTEE am grateful and thankful to them for always supporting any new project I undertake.
This project has opened up my eyes and we are now coming with a VERY VERY BIG PROJECT targeting 50000 poor Goan individuals who are suffering due to some physical & mind issues 
Our NGO always requires Volunteers.
