Providing medical care to the underprivileged.
Aster Volunteers partnered with the Emirates Red Crescent, Dubai to launch ‘Smile’ - a program to help bring medical care to the lives of 100 underprivileged children. More than 24 medical and non-medical volunteers joined Lighthouse Cohort, our CSR Impact partner in bringing joy to the children through fun games, arts and crafts, and educational activities.
A follow-up event, Smile 2.0, was conducted during Eid, 2018. 100 underprivileged children of various nationalities were provided medical screening and 60 of them were taken shopping and receive Eidi from Aster Volunteers. Our volunteers helped make this year’s Eid one to cherish, both for the children and us.
The Aster Volunteers Green Choices program will initiate a series of activations that will enable us to shift to a more sustainable future. We firmly believe that sustainability should be at the core of our business, and this is the first step.
Eco tales is a storytelling initiative to spread lasting awareness amongst school children on the need for preserving nature. The initiative will reach out to 50 schools in Kerala. We feel that the best audience for these stories are the ones whose future is actually at stake.
Aster Community Connect wants to better lives through providing livelihoods, medical aid, employment, free surgeries and more. And we do this through the help of our volunteers and partners. We will continue telling these stories of good that touched hearts and healed the one community we are all a member of - humanity.
As the people of Kerala get back on their feet, it’s time to rebuild - starting with their homes. Aster Homes will help rehabilitate or rebuild homes that were wholly or partially affected by the Kerala floods. We need volunteers to help execute this project.
