Students Corner

Kerala Flood Relief Campaign

Brainware Group of Institutions has always emphasised on instilling among its students a spirit of fraternity and moral human values. The disastrous natural calamity that befell on Kerala as a result of ceaseless torrential downpour for a prolonged period of time caused enormous damage not only to life but property as well. Such a situation called for an immediate support from other states and fellow human beings. The students of our engineering college, exhibiting a sense of altruism and humanitarian concern, organised a Fund Collection Campaign and played an active role in assisting the victims both in cash and in kind. The amount collected was deposited to the Kerala Relief Fund for those unfortunate sufferers so that they could recuperate soon. It was a humble effort on the part of our students to stand beside the casualty. We hope their endeavours bring a little drop of happiness in their sea of sorrow.
