A village named Bhalivali near national Highway-8. This place is close to Virar.
Recently Leo’s & Lions club of Vasai Pearls, District 3231A3 visited many orphanages. Out of the same, it has been observed that one of the orphanages named Sai Aadhar having many small children. These children are very kind and poor that they need to travel almost 2 km by walking to attend their school. We found it very difficult for them to take such a long walk on a daily basis to attend school.
Looking at the condition of these small children we took a decision to run a drive to collect old/used bicycles for these small children. So they will get their own vehicle to travel through and from the school.
We initiated this process by creating a google form and shared the link form with everyone in the group on WhatsApp and they shared the same link in their own friend and business circle. After sharing this form we got a good response from the nearby area of Vasai & Virar. We have collected 25 bicycles from various donors who have willingly submitted the google form to donate their bicycle to such poor & needy people. We have visited their provided addresses and collected the bicycles from them and put them in a bicycle repair shop to make them usable.
Bicycle Distribution Day:
On 20th December 2020, we Leo & Lion’s Club of Vasai Pearls decided to distribute bicycles on this day. Our 4 to 5 Leo members and our Lion’s visited the Aashram and distributed the bicycles among these children. The joy on these children’s faces was very sparkling. Everyone was enjoying that precious moment. Even felt blessed while distributing these bicycles to children.
