The CAB is flooded with calls from the different parish priest to have there needy sick and the elderly vaccinate.” said Angelina Mantosh Jasnani .

We feel blessed at the cab to have helped more then 15 hundred plus citizens vaccinated free of cost by the of our beloved CM Didi initiative.The Church is a place of Trust and Hope thus having vaccinations on the premises eliminates hesitancy and instills confidence in the faithful. we encourage all religious leaders to encourage their people to get vaccinated. we must play our role and if we take our vacation at these drives it gives people the confidence and eliminates any doubts of being false camps as misinformation keeps people away from genuine initiatives of the government” added Angelina Mantosh Jasnani.
