October the 2nd is a sacred day for Indians – the birthday of India’s beloved father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi. In 2007, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution declaring it the International Day for Non-Violence.
On 02 October 2013, Pallium India’s volunteers and staff were joined by students from Mahatma Gandhi College and Mar Baselios Engineering College to clean Trivandrum’s popular evening get-away – the beach at Shankumugham. The Worshipful Mayor of Trivandrum Ms Chandrika herself joined the team in the cleaning campaign.
Following this, Pallium India team performed a street play to improve public awareness. In the photograph you see Sreelekshmi, our Assistant HR manager playing the role of a patient’s wife.
The street play attracted a lot of public attention and was a great awareness tool. Pallium India’s Trivandrum team think they would be doing this more often.
