Emmanuel, God with us. He is with us sharing our joys and pains…..
Sarva Seva Sangh, Mumbai organized a Christmas celebration with people living with HIV/AIDS along with their family members on 20th December 2004 at St. Arnold’s school hall, Andheri (E). Over a hundred people including their children gathered in the hall by 10 am. Mrs. Meera Barretto, Mrs. Sandra Cranston and team organized various fun games and entertained the gathering for nearly two hours. Everyone continued to enjoy dancing around for another thirty minutes or so until Fr. Mathew Korattiyil shared a short message of Christmas. Many SVD confreres walked in during the celebration to woo the people. Everyone went back home gladly with lots of gifts, lunch box and a supplementary nutrition kit. Many volunteers, St. Arnold’s school and the staff of Sarva Seva Sangh contributed generously towards the success of the celebration with these people who are often excluded by the society.
