Brief Introduction of Veena Patel:
She joined INNERWHEEL CLUB OF SURAT EAST in 2017-18. She was Club ISO in 2018-19. She was Club Secretary in 2019-20. Presently, she is the Club President. She is also working with ‘Janki Mahila Mandal, Kamrej’. She is also a member of The Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Veena (Bharti ) Patel while explaining her detailed charity work with Hello Womeniya News said that,”During the 2nd wave of Corona, when even the family members of Corona patients were not going close to patients, we did the project ‘Fight against corona, Seva Sankalp with duty’ in which I and my team went to meet these patients in the Isolation Centre (where covid patients are treated). We interacted with patients, had a
laugh with them and encouraged them for speedy recovery. There were more than
100 patients and we distributed fruits and home remedies like packets of ajma, cloves
and camphor. This project gave me internal satisfaction.”
Veena Patel further added,”During these difficult times, when many people were unable to find beds in hospitals
for covid treatment, we contacted many hospitals and NGOs to help these people get
required treatment and medication by arranging beds for them. Also, there was shortage of blood and plasma during this pandemic. Thus we arranged many Blood donation camps and Plasma donation camps. In these camps, we collected more than 200 bottles”.
During these pandemic year, I and my team distributed masks & sanitizers to Corona
Warriors. We encouraged them by honoring them with memento, shawl, certificate,
etc. We did more than 50 projects related to Patriotism, Health and Hygiene,
Environment, helping orphans, etc, physically as well as virtually said, Veena Patel.
Hello Womeniya Correspondent asked what kind of challenges did Veena Patel faced in which she conveyed,”As I used to work with corona warriors and visit corona affected people, many people in our surroundings use to stay away from me and doesn’t come close to me,There is also a huge risk of me and my family getting affected by corona due to this
visits, but still I continued social work to help different community of our society.”
While addressing the people Veena Patel said,
“Last 1.5 years has been very difficult for every person on earth. People lost their relatives,
their jobs, their house, etc. So help everyone in whatever way you can. It may include
helping financially, helping with food and other day to day needs, helping people by
encouraging them and other different ways. Stay home, stay safe, wear masks, sanitize
hands, take vaccines and be positive.
At last, I would like to share a quote by Michelle Obama:
“You may not always have a comfortable life. And you will not always be able to solve all
the world’s problems all at once. But don’t ever underestimate the impact you can have,
because history has shown us that courage can be contagious, and hope can take on a life
of its own.”
