Mumbai, Apr. 3. The Social Service wing of the Don Bosco Society, Guwahati Province, known as 'Bosco Reach Out' headquartered at Ulubari, Guwahati has been providing food and relief materials to 3500 poor daily wagers and migrant families who are suffering due to the 21-day lockdown after the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. Currently Bosco Reach Out is distributing essentials kit which consists of Rice, Dal, Oil, Soya Nuggets, Soap, Hand Sanitizer and most important is Mask. We have planned to reach out 3500 families in Assam and Meghalaya. Till now we have provided immediate need of 263 families in urban slum of Guwahati city at Boothnath and Manipuri Basti.  
The COVID-19 Crisis relief program for Boothnath and Manipuri Basti was organized on 31 March with the help of Assam Police. In Boothnath Slum a total of 172 families and in Manipuri Basti 91 families were found to be affected due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Most of the families are daily wage earners, servants, construction workers, daily labourers, Rickshaw-pullers, Balloon sellers, and so on, who have no means of income to feed their families for the next few weeks, due to lockdown. Bosco Reach Out gave them essential kit so they can sustain their family for 10 days.  

Bosco Reach Out is grateful to the Assam Police personnel, volunteers and the staff of Bosco Reach Out, Guwahati for assisting them to distribute the provisions at this critical time.
