The Eparchy is trying to extend its care mainly to the Shivamogga and Chikmagalur districts of Karnataka state through MSSS. Realizing the emergency, 147 selected families were given ration and hygiene kits last week. MSSS arranged a Covid-19 information centre with a team of volunteers working round the clock to provide telephonic assistance. His excellency Mar Joseph Arumachadath together with Rev. Fr. Abraham Areeparambil, the director of MSSS is monitoring and assisting this venture. More financial assistance is solicited as Covid -19 Solidarity Response Fund to provide sufficient ration and hygiene kits.
