Life-giving Rice and Sambar

Fr. Varghese and his people distributed packets of rice and sambar (vegetable stew) to hungry storm victims for nearly a week. Rains are continuing today, but home cooked food is putting smiles on the faces of those who have lost homes and belongings in this week's vicious storms.

"We just supplied food for 50 people!" rejoiced Fr. Varghese, when he returned to his mission after a mid-day run, bringing the comforting rice and sambar packets to hungry townspeople and to those staying at the local government aid shelter. He was happy, wrote the priest, 
to "make sure our people get proper food."
To those who helped provide, cook and distribute the packets, the missionary gave his thanks and prayers: "Because of you they are fed today."

People congregate at the government aid shelter
in Kakinada, where Fr. Varghese distributed
food packets today. Many people lost their huts
when storm rains swept them away.
