The band that plays not just for ears, but hearts too.
Meet Muthu, Jaymohan and Benny, the three extraordinary talents that make up Heart to Heart, the resident band at Aster Medcity, Kochi. Every day for the last three years, they have been filling the air of the hospital lobby with the sonorous notes of their soulful melodies. What's even more amazing is that these artists cannot see their audience, but their music has never failed to reach the hearts of their captive audience.
They perform a very difficult job, to welcome ailing patients and their families, when they're going through a very tough time. But the purity of soul that is contained in their music, makes even the most troubled pause and listen, enraptured, because the music they play travels straight from their hearts, to the hearts of their audience.
All three of the members of the band are vision impaired, but they show us something very important, the power of music.
Many communities around the world do not have access to healthcare. This has become especially difficult during the Covid-19 situation. Aster Volunteers Mobile Medical Services strives to bring medical services like temperature screening, medicines, and check-ups to these communities. 16,184 people were positively impacted by this initiative across 5 countries.
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.

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.
