Sadhu Vaswani Mission serves to 1050 needy Muslim families on May 24, 2020
Pune: as the crescent moon appeared in the peaceful night sky and spread its silvery, cool moonlight, and announced the auspicious festival of our Muslim brethren — Eid-Ul-Fitr, millions of hearts joined in prayer.
Joining in the festivities was Sadhu Vaswani Mission.
Volunteers at the Mission headed out with love to make the evening special for over 1050 Muslim families. Dates, bananas and rose milk were distributed with a warm ‘Eid Mubarak’ on their lips.
“The police officials informed us of 930 needy Muslim families at Tadiwala Road who were looking at a bleak Eid. But God willed otherwise; He wanted to make it special, He wanted to make them feel loved,” said an official. “We started the packaging immediately. To make it significant and customized, we included a 1ltr bottle of Rooh Afza Sherbat, 1ltr milk, sevaiya, sugar, dates, and 6 bananas in each plus addition of 3kg rice, 1 kg dal and 1ltr cooking oil,” he added.
“The distribution was completed in 3 hours. Starting at 5:00 pm we were done by 8:00 pm. Also the area being a containment zone, our vehicles stood at the entrance while the lane in-charges under the supervision of police authorities collected the items from us. 50 volunteers were engaged in the seva and about 7 vehicles handled the logistics. Although we had a list of 930 families, we ended up distributing kits to 1050 families” he added.
“Their joy knew no bounds! They were thrilled and overwhelmed at the gesture,” said a volunteer.
“In pandemic times, this festival brings in a ray of hope; it spread the much-needed positivity. We were all smiles!” remarked another volunteer.
When times demand social distancing, hearts were closer than ever before!
Religion, let us talk of it less and practice more
