This World Cancer Day, the Wishing Tree bore fruit.
This World Cancer Day, Aster Volunteers across Aster Hospitals from Kolhapur, Qatar, Calicut, Kottakkal, Oman, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Kochi took up a big task - to put smiles on the faces of our little patients.
Aster Volunteers conducted the Wishing Tree campaign over multiple locations across India and the Middle East. The initiative aimed to fulfill the wishes of young cancer patients being treated at Aster Hospitals.
And that's not all, Aster Volunteers held a talkathon at St. Theresa's hospital. We also gave cancer a run for its money with a walkathon. And we drove an awareness campaign I Am and I Will and even helped cancer survivors strut their stuff at a fashion show. What's more, we even got famous volleyball player, David Lee to participate in our Cancer Smash programme.
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.
