AKVNA Voluntary Endowment Fund:
AKVNA is collecting contributions for the Voluntary Endowment Fund to help veterinarians in the USA and its alma mater in Kerala. This fund was created in 2019 to support the emergency needs of veterinarians in the US/Canada or support veterinary students or alumni from Kerala Vet University. In the past, we gave student aids to vet students who didn’t have enough money to support studies, medical expenses of students, or alumni who met with unfortunate accidents or health problems.
AKVNA has contributed to the following requests:
With the help of donations and the money from the endowment fund AKVNA donated Rs.100,000/- each to both Dr. Saji Easow (1986 batch) and Dr. Darsana (2012 batch) towards their treatment expenses. An additional Rs. 28000/- was also sent separately collected from AKVNA members in Canada.
