LONDON May 10: OICC UK has made a donation of Rs1 Lakhs towards supporting the differently abled children in Kerala. The fund collection was also to honour the passing away of Late T Haridas, who took the initiative to begin this initiative.
Founder of Different Art Centre, Gopinath Muthukad’s vision is to develop a world class art centre, that provides training and opportunities for talented mentally challenged children in our society to showcase their learned skills before wide audience.
Different Art Centre will strive to enrich the physical and mental development through various art forms with the touch of magic, thereby a supportive environment that will empower differently abled children to stand on their own legs and lead a meaningful life.
In an online meeting chaired by Election Convener Appa Ghafoor, the OICC UK decided to hold an annual Memorial Day Awards Ceremony in memory of Late Thekkumuri Haridas, former President of the OICC UK and former Indian High Commission official and social activist. The “Hariyettan Memorial Awards Committee” will hold an awards ceremony each year.
In honor of the Late Hariyettan OICC UK Working President KK Mohandas sent Rs100,000 raised by OICC UK to the school headed by Gopinath Muthukad.
The meeting decided that OICC UK would continue to lead such charitable activities in the days to come, said a press note.
