Helping Empower Our Very Own Hellen Keller.
Born prematurely, Ms Sishna Anand aka the Hellen Keller of Kannur, was from birth denied the gifts of vision, hearing, and speech that we all take for granted.
But that didn’t stop Sishna from completing her education and vocational training with the help of Power Braille.
What’s even more heartening is that she plans to pursue higher studies. To help her achieve her dreams, Aster Volunteers provided her with an advanced Power Braille device, given to her at a special ceremony, by none other than Shrimati KK Shailaja Teacher, the Minister of Health.
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.
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.
