Here are some photos of the clothing distribution, as you can see all the clothing was delivered. At the time of delivery we had six families here ready to help, by then of the day there were as much ad 120 families who have wiped out the clothing, It was a nice day when the clothing arrived so the distribution has taken place out doors, this is usually what we do because we have air conditioning and our building is quite small, but all the clothing was given out the the families.
A big thanks to Indian Support Association for your support.
