"I am glad to learn that Sahrudaya, the arm of the Archdiocese of Ernakulam-Angamaly for social work, has taken braving steps to address the challenges posed by Covid-19 pandemic. Our commitment to reaching out to the people in distress situation is visible through the multifaceted programmes undertaken under the leadership of Sahrudaya. Many philanthropic individuals, parishes, institutions have come forward to extend care and support to the people who faced difficulties and struggles because of the corona virus.

Sahrudaya has coordinated the relief services and reached out to the needy. I congratulate team Sahrudaya and hundreds of volunteers associated with them for this invaluable mission they have carried out at this time of crisis."
