An update from the Elizabeth Ann Charity
The Report below gives some idea of the significant blessings our donations provide to the people of Burlavaripalem, many of whom have lost their total income through government measures to curb Covid. The pictures above show the items of food and the queues to get the life-sustaining supplies for hungry families. I am pleased that, unlike some of the food distribution in India which excludes Christians, the food distributed by EAC is given, with Christian love, to ALL needy people in the village. There are about 100 Rupees to the pound, so each needy village family gets about £4 of food regularly supplied by EAC, for as long as funds allow.
“This early morning at 2 o’clock we went to the market and got 6 kinds of vegetables. This time the vegetables were a bit expensive. We started the groceries distribution programme after the church service at 3.30. This time we removed dal and Sooji and instead added ginger and garlic.
These are the items
Onions. 15.00 rupees Garlic. 25.00 rupees
Ginger. 20 .00rupees Wheat powder. 38 .00rupees
Salt. 08 .00rupees Soap. 16.00 rupees
Chilli powder. 60. 00rupees Oil. 100.00 rupees
Eggs (6no.s). 20.00 rupees Biscuits. 05.00 rupees
Brinjal. 20.00 rupees Ladies fingers. 15.00 rupees
Cucumber. 10.00 rupees Chillies. 10.00 rupees
Tomatoes 10.00 rupees Beans. 10.00 rupees
Total. 382.00 rupees
Everything went on well. All were very happy. They all have asked us to convey their thanks to you.
We also thank you and specially our Lord Jesus for using us mightily in this noble work.
