On 12 July 2021, after hearing the plight of a family in dire straits, IWC AS quickly sought donations to contribute one month’s supply of provisions to them. During the visit to the family, members learnt that everyone in the household huddle up on a fraying mat to sleep at night, with little else for comfort against the heat or cold.

 

Their plight touched the heart of one member, specifically, and Dr. Nesa generously donated mattresses, sheets, blankets, pillows, medicines, food stuff and other such essentials, which Secretary Shantha delivered to them on 22 July.

 

It was lunch time when the donation was made and the family was gathered around a mat, enjoying a simple meal of plain curry and baked beans. What was so humbling was that the family insisted the Shantha join them to share the little they had. Such graciousness from this severely disadvantaged family.

 

IWC AS has resolved to help them further with tables and chairs so that they can sit down more comfortably for their meals.
