New Delhi, May. 19. In the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic catastrophe, Bosconet - Don Bosco Network South Asia has managed a massive quantum of solidarity relief. Finding innovative ways to help the vulnerable marginalized, especially migrants cope with long-term challenges, the Don Bosco Network through its 354 institutions, registered as NGOs across India,has  fed the penniless poor, sheltered the stranded, with reassurance and preventive education.  .
With its immense reach, the Don Bosco Network has fed 10,82,446 people either through cooked food or grocery kits till date. The production and distribution of 41,0375 masks to people who otherwise have no access, has also been implemented. With vast learnt-experience of ground realities over decades, the most impacted were reached swiftly. Now it is a great challenge to make the hungry, cashless millions of homebound migrants reach their destinations.

Don Bosco Solidarity provided food, ration kits, hygiene kits, shelter and transport where possible to stranded migrants and daily wage workers people. It also provided medical aid with health tests and psychological services wherever needed. Reaching out to refugees and people in slums and on the streets, The Network provided food-rations creating awareness about COVID-19. The Network has also supported the government infrastructure through funds and by supplying heath workers, the police force and other government personnel with protective face masks. Don Bosco NGOs have partnered brilliantly with the local administration in many places to coordinate relief work to benefit the maximum deprived.

As economic uncertainty clouds the world's horizon and jobs disappear, NGOs such as the BOSCONET - Don Bosco Network South Asia are discovering and innovating ways to help the most impoverished needy, already-marginalized, such as daily wage earners and migrant labourers.
