Students help the terminally illFootprints, a rehabilitation project for chronically ill, bedridden and chronic psychiatric patients has reached several milestones by the goodwill of its volunteers from Kozhikode colleges.
The students bring the patients from their homes to the Institute of Palliative Care, where the project is carried out, and engage them in various activities, said project coordinator Jose P.
The project was started by the Pain and Palliative Care Society, an NGO, at the Institute of Palliative Medicine in Kozhikode Medical College two years ago.
In 2009, we conducted a class on palliative care in some of colleges and the response we received was overwhelming, says Jose.
Through Footprints, about 1,000 students volunteer in various activities to help bed ridden patients. About 300 students are active in this, Jose says.
Patients are given training in manufacturing such products by experts and with the help of students they engage in the production of such goods which are sold to raise funds, Jose says.
Sheejith T N, an active student volunteer says Watching them smile, even amidst their difficulties, has a very soothing effect.
