On 26 February, a service project lead by four youngsters – Anirudh Kulkarni, Aditya Dhanuka, Jeegar Karavat and Rohit Thakur – from the non-profit organization, Art of Living (AOL), Kuwait, set out to distribute over 400 food-packages to labor camps in Mahboula, which covered 1,500 laborers in need.
The AOL, an educational and humanitarian movement engaged in stress-management and service initiatives, operates globally with programs which include breathing techniques, meditation and yoga.
It has spread peace across communities through diverse humanitarian projects, including conflict resolution, disaster relief, sustainable rural development, empowerment of women, prisoner rehabilitation, education for all, and environmental sustainability.
In line with its aim, its recent service project – a huge networking system of all-volunteers, efficient collection of non-cooked foods and its packaging, a large number of contributions came-in in the form of both, foods and money, from the AOL members as well as other non-AOL contributors.
Speaking on the success of the project, leader and volunteer Rohit Thakur said, "We felt happy when we saw that laborers were more than happy to receive the food with gratitude. People want us to continue doing this, and we will keep on volunteering for many such projects."
