UDHAVI Best Volunteer Award for the Year 2021

Best Volunteer Award 2021

UDHAVI conferred the best Volunteer Award for outstanding services to the elders recently, to Piravi Perumal who has worked with UDHAVI for the past 6 years.

UDHAVI held the function at Savera Hotel and the evening was hosted by Mrs. Nina Reddy Joint Managing Director Savera Hotel. Piravi a banker by profession has authored books and has visited elders whenever they have reached out, and accompanied them on hospitals visits, and even taught some of them how to use the smart phone and the computer.

This is one facet of the services undertaken by the NGO. Their hands tied during the pandemic as house visits were not possible, only virtual programmes were conducted by UDHAVI for the elders who have registered with them.

This function was the first public live event by UDHAVI after a gap of three years. The chief guest was Mrs. Usha Rajeshwari President Rotary Club of Madras Coromandel, and Creative Head of Prakrithi Jeeva Media Pvt Ltd and her inspiring speech was in praise of volunteering.

Mrs. Sabita Radhakrishna Chairperson-Founder UDHAVI addressed the volunteers, urging them to be more active now that the restrictions were lifted.

A Music Group Dwani performed live, singing popular tunes with a mix of old numbers which revived nostalgic memories.
