Maroli: The new building of ‘White Doves Psychiatric Nursing and Destitute Home’ at Niddel was inaugurated by Leslie Fernandes, main donor of the home on Sunday, February 17th.

District in-charge minister and minister of urban development and housing U T Khader, parliamentary secretary and MLC  Ivan D Souza, city police commissioner T R Suresh, senior civil judge Mallanna Gowda, MLA Vedavyas Kamath, former MLA J R Lobo, NRI entrepreneur Ronal Pinto and Benedict Barboza were present as chief guests.

Founder of the White Doves Corrine Rasquinha gave the welcome speech and said “The building was completed at a cost of Rs 8 crore. Without a single penny in my hand, I had started the project. But the Almighty inspired many kind-hearted souls for his mission and I got donors from all around the world. With the help of generous people from our society, we have completed the construction of new home. There might be questions in people’s mind why such a modern building? But according to me, we all want to live in a good and modern house, then why destitute and poor cannot dream for the same? They are also human beings and children of God. We should consider them as our own.”

Speaking on the occasion U T Khader said, “I am happy to be part of this event because ‘White Doves’ has been spreading the love of God across the society. The Rasquinha couple has done wonders in our society by taking care of destitute and mentally ill. They are the role model for all government bodies because they are doing their work with such ease. It is an inspiration for the government. I assure support to White Doves and try to sanction funds for its activities.”

Delivering his speech MLC Ivan D’Souza said, “When we enter the Assembly, there is a board which reads – ‘Government work is God’s work’. But we all know how government departments function. But here White Dove is doing God’s work in a proper way and it is teaching governments as to how to serve the society. Corrine Rasquinha and her family are doing the work similar to that of Mother Theresa. We can see another Mother Theresa in Corrine.”

MLA Vedavyas Kamath, said, “By looking at the premise itself, I can say that the new building is a successful one. I salute Rasquinha couple for their social service. They are the hope of destitute and poor. Corrine is the role model for all of us. I assure my support to White Doves and my doors are open to White Doves for any assistance.”

J R Lobo spoke on the occasion and said, “Many people have misunderstood the service done by the Christians. Without knowing facts, some blindly say that Christians are engaged in conversation. But in reality, Christians are not supporting any type of forcible conversation. This community stood for service. They never do service on the basis of caste, creed and religion. It is the time to publicize service of Christians. By this we can avoid such misunderstandings.”
