The palliative care scene in Kerala has lost a much-loved and loving volunteer and activist with the demise of Mr Vijayakumaran Andoor on 28 August 2019.
In the early years of Pallium India’s work in Trivandrum, he joined us as a volunteer and later, took over as treasurer for many years. But more than the official positions, he became a friend to many people in suffering and to a lot of our benefactors, he was the compassionate face of Pallium India. His death came as a shock because it was so sudden; he had enjoyed good health till an aortic aneurysm ended his life in a matter of a day or two.
Our thoughts are with his grieving wife, son and daughter.
