Blankets and Hygiene Kits Offered to Inmates of Ganeshpuri Ashram Shelter, Ganeshpuri

Team SSM Mumbai set off on 3rd December 2022 to the Ganeshpuri Ashram Shelter which is situated in Ganeshpuri, about 60 kms from Mumbai, to meet the inmates most of whom are aged or ailing and have been abandoned by their family members.

About 30 members of this marginalized community have been supported with a daily meal since August 2022. Their shelter is cleaned once a week and the inmates are sensitized to take care of their personal hygiene.

However, with the onset of winter and the lack of access to hygiene essentials, the team members decided to offer 50 blankets and hygiene kits comprising toothpaste, toothbrushes, soaps, shampoo sachets, and detergent bars to the inmates, the less privileged and a few children who live in the padas or local colonies near the shelter.

The team members were filled with immense gratitude and humility as the inmates showered them with joyous smiles and loving blessings.
