Addressing the gathering Vasudev J Masurekar, said, “Freemasons in and around the city is the most vibrant community. We have taken up massive flood relief works in Jammu and Kashmir recently. The blankets provided and collected by freemasons of Hyderabad are being distributed in Baramulla, Srinagar and Anantanag.”

Arvind P Chitra, grand master of the Regional Lodge of Southern India mentioned that the Masonic Service Center is a novel project, new to the freemasons community in India. He appreciated local members for their efforts in being a part of the self sustainable project.

GG Chowdary, the chairman of the Deccan Masonic Society said that the contraction of Masonic Service Centre would be completed soon at a cost outlay of Rs 91 lakh.

“It is a self sustainable project conceived first in freemasonry in India. These funds would be mobilised through donations and contributions. It would house dispensaries, employable skill training school and a temple which would be a freemasons meeting place. In future, Masonic Retreat (retirement homes) having 50 apartments for freemasons would also be developed in the same place in the second phase,” he said.
