The chief guests for the program were Mr. Anil Baba Mishra (Municipal Chairman) and Sahid Ali Sonu (District councilor). While addressing the audience, Mr. Anil Baba Mishra said, “Believers Church is playing a vital role in empowering the poor and the needy of our society. Through the Community Development Project of the church, the helpless and destitute get a chance to live a dignified life as well as earn a decent income. I’m truly honored to be a part of this event”.
The speech was followed by distribution of gift items. There were 172 recipients including widows from six different villages who received tin sheets, sewing machines and solar panel from the church. On the same occasion, 19 bicycles were also distributed to Bridge of Hope students following the successful completion of their studies.
Arti Patel, a recipient said, “I am so much thankful to the church for providing me with a new sewing machine. Ever since my husband died, I have been living a miserable life. I struggled to make ends meet. But, now that I have a sewing machine, I will stitch clothes and take care of my family well.”
