Feeding the vulnerable, AIDA takes the initiative
The second wave of COVID arrived much later in the northeastern region of India, meaning it received inadequate resources than the rest of the nation, making people more exposed to the virus.
As a part of the Don Bosco Solidarity COVID-19 relief, AIDA, the partner of Don Bosco Network, distributed grocery kits to 213 households in Dimapur, Nagaland. The beneficiaries were essentially domestic workers, construction workers, and daily wage earners who lost their source of income because of the lockdown.
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.
