Don Bosco Solidarity COVID 19 Outreach
by AIDA, Dimapur
The Northeastern region of India does not receive adequate media attention. Remote as the region is from mainland India, the second wave arrived later than in the rest of India, making people more exposed to the virus.
Amidst the pandemic, millions of people have lost their livelihood and hence their only source of food. To provide solidarity to the people of Dimapur, AIDA, the Planning and Development Office of IND, distributed groceries to 170 neediest families in 5 villages of Dimapur District.
The Don Bosco Network in India comprises of 11 Planning and Development Organisations (PDOs), each dedicated to the development of the Salesian provinces they serve. The Don Bosco network is spread across 29 states and 354 NGOs, reaching more than 10 lakh people.
