Kuwait, Apr 17: Life Again Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation established to help and inspire people who are in the pre/post transformation stage of terminal diseases, launched its Kuwait chapter recently. A formal celebration was held at the American International School auditorium, Kuwait.
The event brought together individuals from all walks of life for the common cause Life Again.
The motto 'One for one, we are there for everyone' was personified by the Life Again team that worked hard to make the event possible, said Goutami Tadimalla, founder of Life Again.
"Venkat Koduri has spearheaded the launch event with his tireless dedication, along with Vinay Muthyala. They have been brilliantly supported by many other Indians living in Kuwait, who have come together across organisations and associations, all working together selflessly to realise the Life Again vision," Goutami said.
"Esteemed individuals have come forward in support of Life Again, underscoring the universality of humankind. To name some are Malek Al Jabeel - advisor to CEO, Gulf Investment Corporation, philanthropist and a leading figure in investment banking, Hind Al Bahar - epidemiologist, philanthropist and social worker, Madame Luluwa Alnaama – integrated with Ameeri office, with an impeccable standing within Kuwaiti community, Reham Al Rashidi – leading motivational speaker in Kuwait, life coach, women’s empowerment champion, has her own eponymous TV channel, and is a beloved public figure of Kuwait. Zain Al Zabin – leading child psychologist of Kuwait, social activist, motivational speaker.
"The generosity of spirit that has been extended to us has strengthened our conviction that we are one regardless of how we are defined," added Goutami.
"My visit to Kuwait has been memorable for several reasons. Certainly because of the launch of a new chapter of Life Again, which means that our ability to reach our efforts further has been extended in a new part of the world, but hugely so because of the love that has been showered upon us from both, our fellow countrymen and the Kuwaiti people. The open-hearted and generous support that has been extended to the philosophy of Life Again, is truly humbling and exhilarating. My team and I are inspired and energised to keep forging ahead on our path. To keep fighting to realise our goal of equal rights to health and education for all. With the focus on rural health and education infrastructure and opportunities,"Goutami said.
"Life Again Kuwait will support our activities in India, but more importantly, will work in Kuwait as well. We are in the process of identifying areas in which we can add value and be of significant support. We are also establishing relationships that will enable us to synergize our efforts with those in Kuwait and contribute to causes here. Health, child development and women’s empowerment would be the primary areas of our work. Of course, needless to say, we would not restrict ourselves to these issues but contribute wherever we are needed," concluded Goutami.
The highlight of the event was the mesmerising performance by Padmashri Shobana.
