A couple of years back, this pond in Sambalpur, Odisha was dying because of plastic, drainage water, and the catchment area was encroached upon by illegal construction. MAA took the initiative to revive it by engaging our Angels to clean the pond through fun-based sports activites.
2 years later, we’ve cleaned the pond completely and as a catchment area, the pond cannot be taken back. More trees in the surrounding is giving more life to this pond.
During this summer, the Angels ate a lot of of mangoes with their Sylvester Bhaiya. Why are we telling you this suddenly during our pond update? Because their love for mangoes played a role in saving the pond!
Mangoes were eaten => Seeds were put into a pit to give us saplings => Saplings were planted around the pond => a fitting tribute to mark the efforts of our Angels in restoring the pond.
