Mangalore: The Jammu Kashmir Flood relief fund drive was Launched at Milagres College campus here on September 24.
Mangalore South MLA J R Lobo Launched the relief fund drive along with other dignitaries.
Addressing the gathering Lobo said, “When a person is in trouble and need our support we have to help them. Humanity is very much important in every one’s life. Many a times, when a person meets with an accident, we don’t help him/her to reach him/her to the hospital, thinking that we will be a witness during police investigation. We need to inculcate the helping nature in our life. Helping the needy person is a Godly work. Milagres college is delivering value based education which led the students to think about the people in Jammu and Kashmir and started this relief fund drive”.
Lobo congratulated the college authority and NSS students for the unique drive in collecting funds to help the people in Jammu and Kashmir.
Mayor Mahabala Marla congratulated the Milagres college authority for the unique programme in collecting funds to help the people in Jammu and Kashmir. “This is a very good deed undertaken by the College and NSS students. Let’s hope that such situation will not occur again because many people have lost their lives in the flood in Jammu & Kashmir,” he added.
Parish Priest of Mialgres Church Fr Valerian speaking on the occasion congratulated Fr Gomes for his initiative in collecting funds for Jammu & Kashmir flood relief.
