MLA Kamath has assured full cooperation from Mangalore City Corporation to Rotary for conducting community development projects.
As many as 600 enthusiastic children residing in 12 different orphanages in and around the city took part in the Olympics. The children felt a sense of freedom and relaxed, as they mingled freely, rejoiced, played and danced with children from other orphanages.

Dr Devdas Rai, chairman of the organising committee, said that the event which was a part of their community service aimed to bring a smile on the faces of the children for at least a day, making them feel that they are not lonely.
