The world is facing a very unprecedented problem due to COVID-19. About one crore people all over the world are affected and about 5 lakh people died. India is very seriously affected. Apart from the virus affected people and their relatives entire nation is in distress. Economic recession is in the highest Unemployment increased due to lock down, manufacturing activity is in standstill. Even we cannot go to churches to worship.
In this period of distress by the grace of God – Indian YMCA under took lot of relief activities and its projects were very active in relief activities. Supplying food packets to the needy, face masks, sanitizers etc were done through head office of NCYI and National Projects.
Many YMCAs also undertook many charitable programs in association with central, state, and local self governments. YMCA volunteers were in the forefront in relief activities throughout the nation. By Zoom Meetings YMCA members gave confidence to the people.
Several YMCAs Guest House were given for quarantine purpose. Yes we have done what Jesus taught us. As a Good Samaritan Indian YMCA did it best and doing it now.
I am thankful to all who cooperated with us in relief activities. I hope that vaccine will be invented soon to check this menace. Of course financial difficulties are now faced by NCYI but we have faith in God and soon things will become normal.
Let us pray to God to do wonders as nothing is impossible for Him. Again thanking everybody for the help rendered in the charitable activities in this period and with prayers I remain. May our lord and savior bless us all.
