memo from Dr Ali Azher Iphone 2013 590
Dear All
A great time with immense pleasure…
The palliative care services has completed one year in Lakshadweep.
Three day program has been arranged for volunteers all over the island
And One Great Thing We have achieved in One year is……
We are inaugurating a HOSPICE and its OFFICE in our own place…
Often we were like pregnant women….always wanted to see her baby’s shining face…at last she got a painful…hard…time to see the face of her baby.
As soon as she sees the baby all her miseries were gone….
Yes we were like her….a mother….
We forget the burden of bricks
We lost the pain on our backs
We fade our memories with charming beauty of our baby, this HOSPICE

We believe that the most powerful weapon is LOVE
We feel that the most needed thing in this world is SERVICE

We step into that heaven of LOVE & SERVICE
We pray,

“This HOSPICE Shall be the Home of LOVE, LIGHT & WISDOM.”

Thank you all

Hippocratic film applauded across Australia

Hippocratic Film Header

With only one city remaining in the Australian launch of the biographical documentary, Hippocratic, it is clear that the film has had great impact here.

One important feature has been the opportunity for Q&A after the movie, where audience members have a chance to delve deeper into the issues raised in the film, such as trying to understand the distressing ongoing shortage of morphine, an essential medication in pain management, a shortage that affects over 80% of the world’s population.

This issue alone should galvanise us to action, to demand change and accountability. However, long time advocates in this field know only too well how difficult it is to bring about change and improvements here.

Films such as Hippocratic are too few and APLI thanks Moonshine Movies for their commitment to contributing to change in a creative and positive way.
