In the area of health camps and eye camps are conducted. We assist in providing free cataract surgeries to the people. So far we have organized health camps and eye camps. In collaboration with Comtrust Eye Hospital, Calicut we have carried out 82 cataract operations and distributed 320 spectacles. On a regular basis we carry out distribution of essential medicines and dress material in all colonies where we have roots. Awareness generation regarding various social problems such as alcoholism, betel chewing etc is another area where the organization concentrates its attention. A street play against alcoholism was prepared in the Paniya language and it was staged in many colonies. This year we intend to stage it very intensively.
