St. Xavier’s College (Calcutta) Alumni Association distributed 300 pieces of PPEs to the doctors and health support providers of a city-based private charity hospital on Friday.
The principal of the college and president of the association Rev Fr. Dominic Savio, said, “We need to stand by the doctors and other frontline health service providers who are offering humanitarian service to people in the trying times. Our small effort will surely give a positive signal to the section of the society, which is trying to outcast these noble professionals.”
Members of the association look forward to distributing more PPEs to the health workers in the coming days to combat Covid-19 and they have appealed for contribution to go ahead with the social service.
The association members played an active role in the college’s contribution of Rs 40 lakh to chief minister’s special corona relief fund.
During the lockdown, they distributed ration to 500 needy people on Good Friday and Easter. They also distributed food packets to eight villages around the rural campus of the college at Raghabpur in South 24 Parganas.
The college identified 16 villages in South 24 Parganas and distributed essentials to 3,000 families. They will continue helping the hapless people till the pandemic is over.
