Mangalore: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” — Margaret Mead
Mission K2K was started by the central council members of ICYM Mangalore Diocese with the thought of arranging Boiled rice to the flood victims in Kerala on 16th August 2018 and now has become a popular channel to the people of goodwill to extend their helping hands to the struggling flood victims. “Boiled rice, biscuits, groceries, tetra packed milk, clothes, sanitary pads, diapers and other non-perishable goods are flowing in to the ICYM Central Council office at Jeppu in a faster pace. To add to this list, there are items collected by the ICYM members throughout the Diocesan churches which will be brought to the ICYM Diocesan office at Jeppu by the noon of 20th August and then will be sent through Caritas India to the flood victims of Kerala and Kodagu” says Rev. Fr Ronald Prakash Dsouza, the Diocesan ICYM Director.
With no much pomp, as these ICYM initiatives are turning to be a blessing to the society, our help in their ventures is always needed to them to accomplish their humanitarian mission because as quoted by Franklin D. Roosevelt, “We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future”.
Anyone who wishes to contribute towards Mission K2K are requested to drop the items (preferably Soaps, Sanitary Pads, Bath towels, Water bottles, Cereals, Tea Bags, Tetra Packed Milk, any other non-perishable items) at the ICYM Diocesan office, Yuvajyothi, Olivet House, near St Antony Ashram, Jeppu, Mangalore by 20th August, 3pm. For any queries you may contact ICYM Director Rev. Fr. Ronald P. Dsouza (9845585031) or ICYM President Jaison Pereira (9901936789).
