27 Sep 2012, Amritapuri – Amma’s 59th Birthday celebrations
During the 59th birthday celebrations of Amma, along with the many charitable projects, one of the main charity projects was extending the charitable care at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences in Cochin, wherein MAM will provide 200 heart surgeries and 50 kidney transplants for the poor free of cost.
Launching this program, His Excellency the Governor of Chattisgarh, Sekhar Dutt said: “It is the need of the hour to help the helpless. The poor will not be able to bear the high expenses of heart surgery and other medical procedures. The services provided by AIMS Hospital are exemplary in this field. During the past 14 years, AIMS has provided impeccable service to society, earning the trust of the people. Here we can see a group of people who are willing to cheerfully offer service to the needy. Amma’s method for service is an example for the entire world. She not only encourages people but is providing a role model for society in the fields of health, education and disaster relief. In all these areas its services are commendable.
