Since the launch of the social service society at Cordoba School for A Level, the enthusiasm and keenness to be even just a “drop of goodness” in the murky lives of the less fortunate, swells each year.
The spirit of compassion and empathy for such individuals, especially children, is inculcated and developed. Such unsaid, unwritten and unrehearsed codes of conduct and feelings has deepened over the years with regular visits to Darul Sukun; the home for physically handicapped, AURA; the centre for cerebral palsy, the home for orphans and widows at Rashidabad, Dawood Habib Home, Burns Ward at the Civil Hospital and the Cardiac Surgical Patients department at the same hospital. Students’ assistance and involvement is in both, cash and kind. Economic Franchise Melas, concerts, charity drives, donations, collection from the sale of movie tickets etc. have all contributed substantial amounts for these organizations. Tutoring, entertaining, feeding and caring for, distribution of edibles, books and gifts are some of the ways implemented to help bring a smile on the faces of these not as blessed.
