With a Gesture, They Proclaimed, “We Are With You”!

2011 October 18

Pallium India’s Trivandrum Institute of Palliative Sciences (TIPS), has, for several years, had the pleasure of working with Kerala State Institute of Health & Family Welfare at Thycaud, Trivandrum.

When they rang up to say they would bring some visitors from Rajasthan, it appeared to be another routine visit.

The Wonderfully Generous Team from SIHFW, Rajasthan

We welcomed this group of 20 doctors from State Institute of Health and Family Welfare, Jaipur, Rajasthan and talked to them briefly about palliative care and what is being done in Kerala. The team was led by the Director of the Institute, Prof Akhilesh Bhargava.

They had traveled the previous night, and had had a long day, yet there was some enthusiastic discussion and then we were ready to call it a day.

And then we found them huddled in a group and having some private conversation. They were delving into their own pockets and making a collection. In five minutes, a handsome donation was handed over to us.

Thank you, Dr Bhargava and team!

We know that you yourself are doing some very very important work in Rajasthan – and that you are not even funded by your Government!

All strength to your hands and we hope to work with you in future.
