“Quality of life is what a person says it is.” Seeking inspiration from this, the students of Mar Baselios College of Engineering (MBCET) came forward to extend their support to Pallium India’s “Paint a Wall, Spread a Smile” program, as a part of their college festival titled “Crossroads 2016”. On February 13, 2016, around 100 students worked alongside Pallium India’s team members to paint a wall each of the houses of 10 patients who receive palliative care.
One of the houses at Manacaud was visited by Hon. Deputy Mayor Adv Rakhi Ravikumar. Adv Rakhi appreciated the work of the students and suggested that more people should take up the initiative. The principal of the college Dr. T. M. George, vice principal Prof V. Rao, Pallium India CEO Mr. Manoj G.S. and Crossroads staff Coordinator Mr. Rajesh were also present at the occasion
The ‘Paint a Room’ program had been inaugurated earlier, on January 15, Kerala Palliative Care Day, by Adv. Rakhi Ravikumar at Manaveeyam Veedhi.
