FoV distributes warm clothes and blankets among the poverty stricken people, widows and the women from the unprivileged section of the community. A total no. of 300 woollen clothes and blankets were distributed among the needy.
After the direct distribution of the warm clothes at the door steps of the needy people, a ceremonial distribution programme was organised at Friends of Vrindavan’s office campus. The blankets were distributed jointly by Acharya Shri Atul Krishna Goswami, Sevait of Shri Banke Bihari Temple, Pt. Bal Krishna Gautam and Pt. Bihari Lal Bashishtha from Akhil Bharatiya Brahmin Mahasabha.
Shri Atul Krishna Goswami said that Vrindavan is famous internationally for it being the pilgrimage town, where the poorest of poor can come and reside with comfort. Much care is given to the poor pilgrims and the widows by the people of Vrindavan. The selfless service being provided by the organisations like Friends of Vrindavan adds to Vrindavan’s glory.
Pt. Bal Krishna Gautam said that it is heartening to see FoV’s dedication to protect the environment of Vrindavan and he was impressed to see that this organisation is focussing on the welfare of the humans by distributing clothes, apart from the regular services to this Divine land.
Pt. Bihari Lal Bashishtha said that he was proud to be associated with the charities of Friends of Vrindavan. He recalled his long time association with this organisation and made an appeal to the locals, visitors and all the lovers of Vrindavan should extend all their support to FoV.
While convening the programme FoV’s Jagannath Poddar said the warm clothes and blanket distribution was sponsored by Shri Umesh Davda from U.K., who is an ardent devotee of Shri Dham Vrindavan.
