Making sure baby Alankrith grew up healthy and happy.
When we first met little Alankrith, an 18-month-old boy from Thrissur, his condition was quite serious. He had contracted a chest infection which was rapidly deteriorating and had to be transferred from a hospital in Thrissur to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Aster Medcity, Kochi for Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation(ECMO) treatment. His parents were unable to afford the care Alankrith needed, but fortunately, he didn’t need the ECMO treatment and ASK subsidized the cost for his care. Baby Alankrith recently celebrated his 2nd birthday, beaming from ear to ear for the photos, giving our team of volunteers all the motivation they need to continue the great work they are doing.
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.
