What an outstanding event! Asha Kiran and our community is blessed to have you as volunteers. The team work from many facets of our community was apparent to serve to improve the "health" of those that needed the most.

On behalf of Asha kiran and Collaborators, I thank each one of you for your integral part in creating a successful event yesterday. We screening/tested around 250 attendees. The dire need for free health screening was apparent. I am grateful for committed, welcoming and compassionate professionals such as medical, mental health working tirelessly alongside an enthusiastic volunteer crew to screen, test and counsel, beyond 2 pm.

We already are requested to conduct the event next year and expect 400-500 people. I hope each one of you are ready to serve again with compassion, energy and enthusiasm.


I am honored to have worked with each of you and hope to see you soon.
