Fr Joe brings Tears of Joy to under privleged Children at Bandra Fair

Come September every year, the suburb of Bandra dresses up in its Sunday best to stage the feast of our Lady of the Mount. It is indeed a sight to behold with people from different walks of life, who visit the mount to pay homage to Our Lady and thereafter proceed to the fair with family and loved ones.

Rev. Fr. Joe and Kripa Foundation organized a fun-filled day for more than 600 underprivileged children from various orphanages, special homes and NGOs, on Thursday, the 17th of September this year.

The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves along with the boys in treatment in Kripa Foundation. They danced along with cartoon characters, accompanied by music played by a DJ, singing along with the music led by a compare. A tattoo artist was also present and she painted designs on the hands of the children. The children were also given joy rides which were sponsored by Mr. Zubher. Snacks and soft drink were served to all the children followed by a sumptuous lunch

This has become an annual event for the children. The event management team comprised of Neil, Ryan, Milton and Royston, and was supported by the patients and staff of Kripa Bandra.
