Taking steps to protect our planet
For World Environment Day, our volunteers swung into action to protect the earth. Aster Prime Hospital held a Walkathon to clear the streets of man-made waste. Aster MIMS Kottakkal and the local panchayat came together for a bus stop cleanliness drive. Aster Medcity adopted a Bio-diversity Park which flourished with the tireless efforts of our volunteers. WIMS planted over 150 seeds and Aster RV planted saplings. Thanks to them, we are able to see a considerable rise in green cover. Aster Qatar, Aster MIMS Calicut and Ramesh Hospital diverted all their efforts to different forms of awareness. While Ramesh Hospital increased awareness of air pollution by distributing respiratory masks to policemen, Aster MIMS Calicut along with Nirav and local corporations organised a fish installation. Aster Aadhar initiated a cleaning activity at the historical lake of Rankala. Across countries, borders and ecosystems, our team committed to making the earth greener.
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.
