Bringing Relief to Local Communities hit by Covid in Kerala

All around Kerala, Canossian communities are doing their best to cope with the new reality of Covid-19 pandemic, to console and comfort the poor in new ways. Living the Canossian culture of “more”, in fact, means taking daring steps to reach out to the poor. That’s why the Sisters were able to overcome the moment of pain and struggle and went beyond to care for the local communities.

The Canossian Sisters in Poonthura – a suburb of Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of the Kerala State – joined forces with the Sisters of St. Philomena Girls’ High School to help the needy during the pandemic Covid-19. In particular, they distributed provision kits for 100 families who suffer because of the lockdown. They also provided protection masks to the local police department.

Sr. Annice and Sr. Josmy, of the Pallithode community, took care of packing the free food kits sent by the government to help relief the poor.
