Give CLOTHES Get JOY, 9 April 2017


The Mid-Towners decided to put their weekly holiday on Sunday to good use by travelling to Codli, Sanguem Taluka, where the Wanarmare tribe has been settled for last 6 months. This nomadic tribe has been recently brought into mainstream society by joint efforts of social workers & Govt of Goa by issuing them Aadhar cards, bank accounts, etc. However due to social scenario of last few decades, the tribe continues to live in challenging conditions with lack of electricity, permanent jobs, etc. Hence Rotarians, Anns & Annets as part of community service collected used clothes & gifted them to the Wanamare families. The delighted community accepted the gifts with broad smiles on their face & gratitude in their hearts. The event was coordinated by Rtn Mahesh Patil.
