A one week camp which ended August 29 was a satisfying experience.  The leaders said " Our hearts moved with compassion for those people who were in distress and had lost dear ones, properties and left homeless after the disaster. 


The people have been battling with the consequences of this natural calamity. We responded to the suggestions  of our Superior General Sr Rose Celine and her team, to share our spiritual wealth and human resource by coming out of our comfort and secure zones,"

They generally felt deeply the  heart breaking sight to see how the people were subjected to this natural calamity, lost everything and left with absolutely nothing. Their  presence with love, care and compassion set off in them a ray of hope to make a new start and enthusiastically  engaged themselves in cleaning and clearing of their houses and areas.


They cleaned two large areas a home for the aged and several houses in the area they were allotted. The experience has made a remarkable impact on all the participants and local helpers and the lives of the suffering people were given a hope. food items, necessities and so on were also distributed to the victims. It was an experience they said would remain with them for long and change their life too by being considerate of the needs around them, with physical service and the care of nature and the environment.
