As a step forward in social responsibility, the Indian Community School (Senior) (ICSK) Kuwait, organized a visit to labor camps in Mahboula, Kuwait, on Friday, 24 November.

The trip was an eye-opener to the teenagers who witnessed the tragic living situations of people, who separated from home and family had to labor in tough conditions for their daily wage. In pursuit of survival, these workers are often ignored by society and are ostracized from societal concepts of family, love and community. The working conditions of these migrants are not very favorable, given the extremities of weather and manual labor involved.

The workers are resultantly thrust into a world of darkness, exhaustion and seclusion. The students of ICSK Senior were welcomed into their solitary lives, and the students were given the opportunity to empathize with the lives of these fighters who daily brave against the most harrowing conditions.

Under the guidance and leadership of the class teachers, various items like sugar, pulses, tea bags and blankets were collected class wise and kept in separate rooms. The students were given five days to collect these items, and 300 packets were made that included 1kg of sugar, 5kgs of rice, 1 packet of dal, 1 packet of loose tea/tea bag and 1 blanket per packet. The neediest people among the camps in Mahboula, Kuwait, were identified. The students loaded the packets in to the buses and set forth to the labour camp to distribute them accompanied by their teachers. The packets were handed over by the students individually to the needy.

The students delivered food, clothing, toiletries and other urgent needs in an attempt to display solidarity with these workers and help ease their burdens.  The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.

Dr. Binumon, Principal, ICSK (Senior), commended the industrious effort of the students in packing and distributing food items, under the guidance of teachers. The students expressed their readiness in continuing this benevolent act of kindness. As per the request from the people of the camp the school has decided to increase the frequency of these visits. Charity is always another manifestation of love and it benefits the giver more than the receiver.

Initiatives like this from ICSK Senior has definitely helped the students evolve into better human beings with a mind set to “give rather than to receive” and will show the way to others to emulate their path towards compassion and empathy.
