Ms. Natalia Mcintosh-PAWS Kuwait, appreciates Indian student Ms. Naina Parasher
Ms. Naina Parasher (daughter of Mr.Anil Parasher –Oriental Insurance Kuwait country head)a student of 8th standard studying at FAIPS (DPS) Ahmadi Kuwait had read in KUWAIT TIMES (news paper) that Protecting Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), Kuwait are going through a difficult time. The animal shelter they run does not have sufficient funds to take care of animals and organise a new shelter as the owners of present accommodation have asked them to vacate.
Being very passionate about the condition of stray cats and dogs in Kuwait and an admirer of the work being done by PAWS in rescuing them and providing food, health care and shelter she was emotionally moved on the appeal made by PAWS in the news paper.
She on her own accord started a small campaign in her class with a few friends first. She later asked permission from her teacher and the school principal. She collected in small amounts( 250 fils and 500fils ) KD125 and some dog food which was willingly handed over by so many students of her school. This gesture evoked compassion and sense of social responsibility among students. She was specially happy as the response to her efforts yielded some results.
The money was handed over to the Paws representative. While accepting Ms.Natalia Macintosh appreciated the help and handed over a certificate of appreciation for Naina`s efforts which is signed by the chairperson M Tague.
Volunteers do`nt necessarily have the time, they just have the heart.
