Palliative Day:Students initiative for a social cause

As part of the palliative day observance, students from various colleges joined hands to mobilise resources to help ailing patients.

The initiative was undertaken by the Students in palliative Care (SIPC) under the guidance of the Pain and Palliative Care Society (PPCS) at the Kozhikode Medical College.

Around 200 students participated in today’s campaign.

The purpose of the initiative was to provide support, relief, care and treatment to bedridden patients as well as those who require life-long treatment due to incurable diseases.

Akhila, Wafa, Ambili; both are third year degree students at Providence Women’s College, worked at Indira Gandhi Road, covering new bus stand area, accompanied by Berjas,a first year degree student from MAMO College, Mukkam.

“We have divided in different groups to cover almost all major pockets in the city. This is one of our four member groups.”

“It is really a good experience. Realising the social responsibility of taking care of our fellow-beings who suffer from pain , we need not think twice to become volunteers of palliative care.”-says Ambili.

“One of the auto drivers in the city came forward and contributed to us, noticing us as palliative volunteers.

We need not convince him about our project. This kind of support is really a recognition to our service.”-says Akhila.

Wafa says in the initial days it was little tough to convince their parents regarding the field work and home care venture because we are girls.

“But we had already decided to take up this cause, anyway. Gradually, the parents realised the importance and supported us.”

“During holidays, we engage in home care service.”-she adds.

“More students are joining to palliative service recently and this is a positive outcome of our various social awareness campaigns”-says Barjas.

Apart from collecting money, they are trying to make people aware of the project,even under a scorching Sun.

‘Because I Care…’ is a new joint venture of PPCS and SIPC to make students and society aware of the importance of palliative care. This includes extending financial support to ailing patients, providing, good home care.
