BASIC NEEDS FOR MARGINALISED PEOPLE India

$50.00

The pandemic has severely hit the marginalised people in India. Many are forced to migrate from their villages to towns in search of jobs in order to survive. The RNDM Sisters have identified 40 families in great need, living in two villages – a few kilometres away from Shillong, North East India. Many of them are single mothers with children as well as orphans. Some work on an hourly basis helping as house-maids, street vendors or with sick people who are confined to bed without appropriate care and support.

Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions Australia thank you for visiting our online store. All money collected from purchases go directly to our missions. Your contribution means a lot and will be put to good use.
