Below are some pictures of a recent food distribution at the “Urban Deprived Residential Hostel” in Vizianagaram, as well as at a high school in the city. We had been requested by the staff of the hostel and the high school to distribute food for their students.
We arrived at their premises and were greeted by the children and staff, who were very glad to see us. We served them vegetable biryani, kurma, fried chips, etc., and all were
very happy. The staff member in charge for their mid-day meal program asked us if we could do regular mid-day meal program for the school, giving the children clean and nutritious food every day. At present we had to tell him that we could not do the program daily as we did not have enough man power, but would try to increase our visits.
The joy on the faces of the children when they see us coming with the prasadam and the enthusiasm with which they eagerly await their turn for the next program encourages the devotees to go on, inspite of the hard work involved.
I WISH MORE AND MORE SUCH ORGANIZATIONS OFFER SUCH SERVICES TO THE POOR, NEEDY AND THE LESS FORTUNATE; THUS ELIMINATIG HARDSHIP OF THESE PEOPLE AND GIVE THEM TIME TO GO FOR EDUCATION AND BETTER THEIR FUTURE LIVES.
“Annadanam” is considered as one of the most sacred action according to Hindu belief. The quantity of food wasted /excess prepared during marriages is alarming. Can anybody think of providing a part of luxurious spending on such functions to such poor people?
Absolutely agree with this comment. Waste not want not.
Annam Parabrahma swaroopam.
This is just divine work.!!! Continue till u can. But always remember to take permission from authorities…..Because this is Kaliyuga…whatever good done, there will be some always opposing.Let God bless you all behind..
It makes me feel proud that we have charitable organisations helping the less fortunate in our society. I would like to see more ordinary people like me follow the teachings of our religion and be a little more generous, kind and sensitive to the needs of our less fortunate brothers and sisters. God bless.
Food is the basic need of life.Various schemes of child -protections are running in the World. Say, ICDS&ICPS are different schemes exclusively working to the welfare of children. Food Relief organizations & NGOs are doing good efforts. Please keep it up…..Shakuntla
