Missionaries of Compassion: Giving dignity to the dead

Oct 10, 2020

With the number of deaths due to coronavirus on the rise, the problem of performing last rites as per their religion has become a cause of concern for their next of kin in India. Mercy Mission, a multi-religious charitable organisation in the southern state of Karnataka, has set a sterling example in communal harmony and fellow feeling by helping people give their kin a decent funeral amid the pandemic restrictions. Their volunteers, called the Mercy Angels, work at cremation and burial grounds to provide a dignified send-off to the dead as per their religious rites.
