Mangaluru: Luciana Residency inaugurated - 24 needy families get homes


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SB)

Mangaluru, Apr 15: 'Luciana Residency', a noble initiative providing 24 homes to those in need at Gurupur Ganjimutt industrial estate, was inaugurated on Monday, April 15.

The housing project, 'Luciana Residency', was completely donated by Vincent Rodricks and Mable Rodricks, a philanthropist couple residing in the UAE. The Rodricks couple handed over the flat to Nakshetra Mary, the first occupant.

Fr Cyprian D'Souza, OFM, provincial councilor of the Capuchin Fathers, Fr Melwin Pinto SJ, rector of St Aloysius Deemed-to-be-University, and Fr Harry D'Souza blessed the residential project.

Applauding Vincent Rodricks' gesture,Fr Melwin Pinto SJ said, "Donating homes for the needy embodies the spirit of generosity and solidarity, offering a tangible solution to the complex issue of homelessness and poverty while restoring dignity and hope to those in need. Today, Vincent not only provided shelter but also offered a pathway to a brighter future for those who have been struggling to find a place to call home. His kindness has touched the lives of countless people, bringing comfort, security, and the opportunity for a fresh start."

 

Meena Rebimbus, Ivan Sequeira, and Vishwas Rebimbus, along with their troupe, enthralled the gathering with their melodious singing.

The project comprises three blocks named Akaash, Bhoomi, and Chandra, totaling 24 single BHK flats equipped with basic amenities such as fans, lighting, toilet and bathroom fittings, and kitchen with a sink. Additionally, each apartment is thoughtfully designed with amenities such as water recycling and rainwater harvesting, aiming not only to provide comfort and sustainability but also to nurture a sense of stewardship for the environment. The eco-friendly features serve as a reminder of our collective responsibility to safeguard the environment and natural resources. Various trees and plantations have also been cultivated to nurture greenery and safeguard the environment.

The entire construction work was undertaken by Roy Rodrigues.

Family members and well-wishers of Vincent and Mabel Rodricks were present in large numbers. Marissa hosted the programme. As part of the celebrations, a fellowship lunch was served by M D'Souza Caterers.

    This is what actually Jesus Christ preached. Everyone should follow.. Every church should cater to the needs of poor in their community rather than beautifying the church buildings. God Bless you Sir....
