BIS #2398 ACT OF CHARITY

Patrick Corda 
BORIVILI, JUNE 4, 2011: We all know that receiving things makes you feel good, but giving out is not that easy. Fr Anthony Santarita always spoke to the students that it brings immense joy when you give. “What you have received from society should be given back to society,” he affirmed.

On June 3, 2011 twenty five girls of the Hotel Management visited Ashadeep, an orphanage in the vicinity. The students were happy to see nineteen children of the age group five to thirteen welcoming them all with a smile. These children are orphans and HIV infected. It was a time for entertainment where the children welcomed the girls with a song "Tare Zamin Par". The students then asked the children to form a human circle and they all started dancing to the song “Do the Hokey Porkie. The students taught the children Fr. Anthony’s favourite song, “When you’re happy and you know clap your hands".

The students had purchased some snacks which were given to the children. Later the students visited the children study and stay house in the building. The children had prepared some bags which were purchased by some of the students. After spending an hour it was time for us to return back to the institute. This day will be remembered by all the students for the work of charity they did.

Thanks to Fr. Anthony Santarita for organizing it and Dayanand Patil for making the arrangements to the orphanage.
