Mangaluru, Apr 15: COVID-19 has derailed the lives of the people and fear has gripped every one concerning their safety. Most affected are those who are economically weak and unable to afford even the masks to protect themselves against the deadly virus. St Aloysius Institution is lending a helping hand by actively joining hands with the district administration in the fight against the pandemic. A beacon of light on the Light House Hill is indeed shining and trying to ward off the darkness of the pandemic.
Face masks are stitched at St Aloysius Industrial Institution with the active involvement of students and staff of Sewing Technology trade. The masks would be handed over to the district administration who would then distribute it to the needy.
