18500+ people found the care they needed, thanks to Aster Medcity, Kochi and its volunteers.
Our rehabilitation and aid efforts in Kerala continues, with volunteers coming forward every day to help the state get back on her feet. The volunteering spirit exhibited in these trying times need to be recognised and applauded.
Today, we look at our peers from Aster Medcity, Kochi and the impact that they have made in helping those affected by the devastating floods.
400 volunteers from the hospital and local community stepped up to the task when the water came rushing. They brought medical aid and relief materials to the thousands reaching out for help. They covered 10 panchayats and conducted 69 medical camps, treating over 8000 people. Essentials for the recovering public were distributed in numbers and together, they provided medicines worth over 7 lakh rupees.
25 vehicles full of emergency care and aid went where help was needed, and where the vehicles couldn’t go, our volunteers went anyway. Despite being affected by the floods themselves, the hospital and volunteers together touched over 18500 lives.
To each and every one of you who helped however you can – thank you. There’s a lot to be done in Kerala, but the selflessness and undying compassion many have displayed push us all to do more.
