With the Poor and for the Poor is a video commissioned by Don Bosco Beatitudes, Chennai belonging to the Salesian Province of Chennai.
It was with the idea of salvaging the urban poor and hundreds of leprosy affected people that Don Bosco Beatitudes was started in 1965 by the saintly Italian missionary. Rev. Fr. Orfeo Mantovani SDB. The city was already devouring the suburbs and was growing gigantic. The Salesian priests and Brothers, with untiring zeal and passion for Christ, began their mission among the poor in the slums. It is now a multifaceted missionary intervention in the slums of the city of Chennai. Currently the city has a population of more than 5 million people of whom nearly 2 million people are living in slums, with very poor living conditions, according to the latest statistics.
The movie was well appreciated and is available online
