Walter Nandalike said that although he had heard a lot and published many reports about White Doves and their good work during the past few years, he was here for the first time and was extremely pleased to see their activities in person. Mayor Vijaya Arun also appreciated the commendable work being done by the White Doves.
The live camp is being attended by over 100 participants, most of them being street children and negative issues of HIV +ve parents who are being shunned by the society. About 30 of them are being taken care by the White Doves and many among the rest are likely to stay back in the home for the sake of love and attention they would get.
