On Friday, 21st October, 2016 the members of Mazzarello House, Home Science Club, H.C.Vasant Vihar, New Delhi took the initiative to visit Jeevan Deep Kusht Ashram, R.K.Puram to distribute food to the inmates of the leprosy centre run by the Government. It was to mark the World Food Day and the Jubilee year of Mercy. Sr. Maria Pettayil, three teachers in charge of Mazzarello house and seven students from Class XI representing the students had the privilege of visiting the centre.
The students expressed that it was a touching experience especially when they listened to the lepers of their stories of diseases, the way they were recovering with the facilities provided to them by the Government and their life style. They also carried home the message of saving and sharing food with the poor and needy brothers and sisters of the society and they are convinced that this is an event to remember in all the days to come.
This initiative was yet another step in upholding the Mazzarello House motto: “Serve With Joy”.
