Rev Fr. Wisdom-Bhakita Y.B Anane, the President of the foundation emphasized the need for education has become essential as everyone needs education on Covid-19.

“We don’t own anything in this world and what we are given are not for us but to be shared. That has been why I ask from those who are capable to help support this noble course,” he said.
Some of the underprivileged people who benefited from the donation expressed their gratitude to the foundation adding that “we know we needed the nose masks to protect ourselves against the coronavirus but most of us cannot afford it since our financial standings does not permit us”.
They asked from other organizations to add more PPEs and also support them to have a good living standard in these hard times.
