Mumbai Rains: When good samaritans kept city going providing free food and shelter

Similarly, Church of Our Lady of Good Counsel at Sion provided water, food, shelter and medicines to about 500 people. Among them was a three-day-old and her parents. Sujeet Sharma and his wife Anita, daily wagers, were returning home with their new-born when they were caught in the deluge. Anita was still bleeding when she was brought to the church. According to her, the doctors had discharged her although her condition wasn't good. The church arranged medicines and summoned a nurse to look after Anita.

The couple complained that they had no money and nowhere to look to for help. Nolan, Valentina and Rochella were among the volunteers who helped the people in their hour of need.


​​Back to school: The management of Our Lady of Good Counsel High School opened its doors to over 500 commuters who had waited ​for hours at Sion station. The school is about 500 metres from the station, where an announcement for night accommodation was made. ​

​We congratulate our brothers in Sion for their service towards these people in need.
