In its first outreach, Johnlyn Toy Exchange and Book Bank, delighted 34 children at Bal Bhavan (Children's Home) at the old 'Remand Home' in Bondel by presenting them hampers comprising playthings, dolls and children's books.

A team, led by John Monteiro, promoter of Johnlyn, fronted scores of donors from Mangaluru, Bengaluru, Mysuru, Mumbai and other centres in delivering these goodies to the children hosted by the Bal Bhavan.

The programme included an abridged version of a Bondel Laughter Club session, anchored by John Monteiro, in which the children enthusiastically participated.

On their part, they presented impromptu items of song and dance which were enjoyed by all. Superintendent of Bal Bhavan Laxmi Nayak thanked the Johnlyn team for bringing smiles to her wards' faces - prompting the outreach team to thank her for giving them the opportunity.

Mohan Monteiro, part of the core team, said many more such outreach programmes are planned.

Monteiro requested prospective donors to bring their generous bounty for neglected, deprived and deserving children to Johnlyn Cottage, Vijaya Bank Lane, Bondel Junction, Mangaluru 575008.
