MEET OUR VOLUNTEERS
We come together from different parts of the globe to help the poor and needy of India with food, blankets and warm clothes for the winter months, and cool clothing and shoes for the children during the burning hot summers.
Pintu, in India, oversees the management of food kits and other items with two helpers, Gopal and Satpal, both of whom have been helping Pintu since BFP began in early 2020. They help him organize and prepare food kits for delivery and assist with the distribution of food, clothing, and supplies to the beautiful families waiting excitedly for their arrival.
It's important to make sure everyone gets what they need, especially the large families who may need more. Pintu, Gopal, and Satpal strive to get to know the families they serve and what they need. They take extra time with as many people in the villages as they can, chatting and visiting, and passing out cookies to all the children.
Satpal is a gardener at a local school.
He lives in a village 20km from Pintu's.
