It is a voluntary initiative from students who worked as community based palliative care volunteers. This campaign is focused on volunteering and intervening in many social issues across Kerala. This isn’t an initiative we founded, but are supporting as they are part of the journey to create a compassionate society. The latest project where we collaborated was to harvest Pokkali, when students volunteered after they came to know that there was a shortage of labourers and that there were chances of losing the entire crop for the season. Close to 300 volunteers travelled for five hours in buses and reached the Pokkali farms and stayed in the local villagers’ homes while they helped the farmers to complete the harvest.
