Three purses came to Pallium India this month, along with greatly valued recognition in the form of awards.
The first was Attukal Amba Puraskaram, from Attukal Bhagavathy temple administration, on February 12, 2019. Attukal temple is a place of worship where millions of women get together every year for the famous Pongala. The temple administration believes that worship of the suffering is worship of God, and engages in a lot of philanthropic activities. It was particularly pleasing that the award was handed over by the mega star of Malayalam screen Shri Bharat Mammootty, who is also a humanist, and a patron of the Pain and Palliative Care Society of Calicut, for over twenty years.
The second came from K. V. Abdul Azeez Anusmarana Vedi. The award instituted to commemorate the memory of a great philanthropist was handed over to us by Prof C. Raveendranath, the Hon’ble minister for Education of Government of Kerala on February 14.
The third was the professional excellence award from Rotary North Trivandrum. This Rotary Club has been helping Pallium India for many years now.
We are greatly honoured and promise to fulfil your expectations to the best of our ability. We assure you that the purse which came with each award will be used for bringing succour to the needy and the suffering.
