Mangaluru, Sep 16 : The Environment Commission in collaboration with Indian Catholic Youth Movement (ICYM) of the Diocese of Mangalore organized SAADI-DAAN – a Saree Donation Drive throughout the diocese on the occasion of Nativity of Blessed Virgin Mary.

Monthi feast is considered as a family feast, and it is celebrated with a lot of pomp and joy by the Catholics of coastal Karnataka especially in Mangalore. This feast is a celebration of the birth of our heavenly Mother, along with the gift of Mother Nature, that of family and of the gift of the girl child to humanity. Our country is known for respecting women by worshiping her. Mother Mary, Mother nature and our Earthly mother deserves all our respect and honour.

This feast therefore seems the right time to start a new project of sharing things among the needy and the less privileged. The youth and the environmental commission came up with a unique concept called SAADI-DAAN (Saree Donation Drive). Just as our little innocent children offer flowers to Mother Mary, this drive calls for a cause in which women get an opportunity to show their concern towards other needy women by donating reusable sarees. Around 20,000 sarees were collected throughout the diocese with the help of youth.

The work of all the ICYM unit Directors and Animators needs to be appreciated for motivating and encouraging the youth and making this drive successful.
