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.
We're conducting a series of Facebook live sessions to help people cope with the current COVID 19 pandemic. These sessions are hosted by expert doctors from Aster hospitals. Log on to facebook.com/AsterVolunteers to know more.
As part of the Green Choices Initiative, Aster Volunteers has organised a campaign for safe disposal of e-waste. As the global volume of e-waste increases, it is our responsibility to safely discard and/or recycle it. People can drop off their e-waste in collection boxes present at various Aster Units. This is one step towards ensuring a cleaner environment.
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. Join Aster Volunteers.
Beirut, Lebanon is currently suffering the aftermath of two explosions that took place in August 2020. Our volunteers came together to Stand with Lebanon and pack medical relief kits. Kits worth over 2 million with medicines and consumables were prepared and sent to Lebanon via IHC Dubai and the Ministry of Health UAE. We are grateful to the volunteers and the contributors who made this possible.
