“We have distributed 120 blankets to the needy people today” said Mandhotia the president of the MYM Angul since 2013. “I personally feel blessed when my resources come to some use for the needy.” The Angul unit of the MYM registered in 1985 has made its recognition as pioneer social organization by virtue of its charity activities.
During the Phailin in 2011 MYM had organized two relief camps in Baripada and Ganjam. “The organization has contributed relief material worth Rs 7 Lacs to the Phailin victims” said Shree Mandhotia as he added that they had organized a mass marriage comprising 112 poor couples in Nuapada.
