Kerala Cultural Association or KCA has emerged as a brain child of some high thinking, philanthropic, socio-economic-culture oriented Malayalees during a routine rendezvous in an evening primarily for rendering economic as well as emotional assistance to their fellowmen residing around in and Sabarmati during any unforeseen crisis or disaster.
Since then, the organization has grown magnetically and has been instrumental in providing help for medical emergencies, educational assistances, and cultural development. It also helped for a host of other causes like organizing cultural events and get-togethers intending multi-faceted development wherein the members could not only exchange their concerns but also to reinforce the feelings of togetherness and exhibit their capabilities in various fields. Prizes are awarded for outstanding performances in various fields of activities and academic excellences.
In 2009, as a part of its endeavour to uphold the spirit of togetherness, KCA came out with a Membership Directory providing the names, addresses and contact details of the members of the community with the sole aim of establishing faster communication network for improving mutual contact and co-operation among them. The amalgamation of more areas to the urban agglomeration and the real estate boom that followed saw the expansion of our area of action and more and more people belonging to our community migrated to this new haven. Further the past years activities and performances had brought about many changes. To incorporate these changes, additions are suitably notified and updated all new Directory – 2014 has been released with great pleasure.
An individual, may be very high profile while existence in this world but after death, loses his / her name that he / she had earned and carried, and simply called only as ‘body’ and disposed of without any benefit to others. What if some selfless wishes to use them either by part or in full for providing a fresh lease of life to the needy? What will happen if two blind people who never seen the world started seeing with the cornea gifted from your ‘body’? The gifted cornea not only get a fresh life even after his / her death, but also allow the blind who never seen the wonders of light, embrace the world with joy and get fresh life with family and friends.
As part of the humanitarian activities, KCA wish to go for its flag-ship program christened as ‘Donate Organ & Gift a Life’. Organ donation is the process of providing a person with one or more of your organs, tissues, blood during living or after death. For a living donation, the most common is the kidney transplant and also include the lung, liver, and parts of the pancreas. In the case of Deceased donors, the organs that are donated includes Kidneys, Lungs, Heart, Liver, Pancreas, Intestines, Corneas (Eyes), Middle Ear, Skin, Heart Valves, Bone, Veins, Cartilage, Tendons, and Ligaments or even the Cadaver itself.
Motivational initiatives have been started to spread the awareness among members through leaf-lets and mouth to mouth publicity about the necessity and advantages of donating organs including the cadaver especially after death there by giving a second life to the needy with our organs that would have been gone waste otherwise. Its inauguration has done with mass campaigning in the large gathering of its annual celebration on 7th February 2015 and in the magnanimous presence of Dr T Ayyappan the world renowned Plastic Surgeon, Dr Dilip Shah, a well-known medical Doctor and a prominent Philanthropist.
To get abreast with the changing of time and advancement of technology, KCA wishes to spreads its wings Global. To enhance the activities of KCA and also to accelerate its performance, it is pertinent to know about the happenings in and around the world.
