Packets of compassion
- 10 November 2020
“To protect, help and feed the needy with humanity is the only religion,” says 13-year-old boy, Yashuayatin. While our students are constantly keeping themselves occupied serving others, Yashuayatin is another compassionate student from Oakridge International School Gachibowli, who is keen to feed the needy and provide rations to as many vulnerable families as possible.
We are touched by the wonderful gesture and the warmth shown by Yashuayatin towards the police officers, frontline workers, health care professionals, village volunteers, and rural villages, who are dealing with difficult times due to this unprecedented crisis. In order to serve them with humanity, he distributed nutritious food packets and other essential items to support them and their families. He also donated home appliances to the volunteers who helped him with the distribution.
He served over 250 Dry Ration and Sanitary kits and more than 2000 ‘Feed the needy’ food packets including eggs and stainless-steel plates to the older people who are underprivileged, while taking all the precautionary measures along with his parents. Apart from this, Yashuayatin also took an initiative to impart education to the children and other adults in villages. He taught them about the various ways to take precautions to save their own lives and others.
His mother Dr.Divya Sunitha Raj said, “I would like to thank you for the wonderful education nurture and ethics Oakridge has inculcated into my child to a wonderful human being and socially responsible citizen. This year the community project concept also helped him a lot to be motivated. Our special thanks to Oakridge Administration, Principal Ms.Hema Chennupaty, Head of MYP Ms. Sweta verma, MYP Coordinator Ms.Heminder Kler and class teacher Snigdha madam who has constantly motivated Yash. We are so happy as parents.”
“Very happy to see Yashuayatin getting involved in helping the people in need. As a core element of Community service that we imbibe in our students–we get very excited to see our students take their learning outside of the classroom and the school. It also reflects well on the value system that his parents have instilled in him. ‘Charity begins at home’ and we are very happy to support parents in this journey of serving humanity. Wishing Yash all the very best. So proud of him,” said Hema Chennupaty, Principal at Oakridge International School, Gachibowli.
