An organization called Blue Diamond Society reached out to team of MDN. Blue diamond is a non profit organization working for rights of LGBT community. They wanted to inquire if MDN is willing to forward support towards their community. They shared that, this has been difficult time for them especially since they are not able to access any kind of packages distributed by government because of their citizenship issues (clarity about their gender). They shared that, they could help us reach out to them, if MDN can provide any kind of support. Upon hearing them, MDN decided to distribute the food packages to 30 families for this phase in coordination with BDS team, who promised to help with distribution. And as planned, MDN along with proud member of BDS successfully distributed food packages to 30 members of LGBT community. BDS expressed their gratitude to MDN. But the actual credit goes to all those who helped MDN reach out to communities. MDN is committed to support people, community at this time of crisis. THANK YOU all for your kind support. .
MDN would like to take a moment to thank all the generous individuals and groups involved in this great cause.
