Aster Disaster Support Team mobilized to help Kerala flood victims

Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman and Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare pledges to contribute Rs. 50 lakhs or AED 265,000 to Kerala Chief Minister’s Relief Fund.

To support the victims of one of the worst floods that Kerala has seen in recent history, displacing more than 54000 people, Aster Disaster Support Team has been mobilized to provide humanitarian aid. Consisting of more than 200 medical and non-medical volunteers from Aster DM Healthcare’s network of hospitals in India and led by Aster Volunteers Global Programme, the Aster Disaster Support Team has started working with local government relief centres in Wayanad, Ernakulam, Calicut, Malappuram districts to conduct medical camps, provide health check-ups and essential materials for sustenance. The pledged amount of Rs. 50 Lakhs or AED 265,000 will further strengthen the local government’s efforts to help those affected by the floods.

Speaking on the occasion Dr. Azad Moopen said, “In this state of utter devastation and calamity, it is our duty as citizens to come together and help those in need in the best possible way we can. While our Aster Volunteers are leading the Disaster Support Team to help our people, we would urge each and every one to come forward and lend a helping hand to those in need.”

Till now, the Aster Disaster Support Team has been able to reach government schools in remote areas which are currently acting as shelters for affected men, women and children and distributed relief packages consisting of essentials like food items, medicines, clothes etc. In addition, medical check-ups are being conducted to tackle ailments and prevent outbreak of any contagious diseases.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to
    be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post,
    I will try to get the hang of it!
