Amrita SREE is uplifting women in the midst of crisis: NA Nellikunkun, Kerala MLA

NA Nellikunkun, MLA in Kasaragod, said that whenever society faces crises, it is very comforting to see Amma come forward with loving help. Nellikunkun is a member of the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) and was inaugurating the Amrita SREE annual meeting for self-help groups (SHGs) in the district.  

Nellikunkun added that the SHG project carries a focus on women’s empowerment and in this way, is a helping hand for people who have faced great challenges in life. About 10,000 women who are members from across the region gathered at the Kasaragod Municipal Stadium grounds for the event. 

Swami Amritakripananda Puri delivered the blessing speech. BJP District President Ravishathantri Kundar, DCC General Secretary Vinod Kumar, Amrita SREE Coordinator R. Ranganathan, and Brahmachari Vedavedyamrita Chaitanya also addressed the gathering. 

Aid was distributed to SHG members who attended the meeting. Support for the women included food, clothing, financial assistance, and grain supplies, as well as working capital for each SHG with 20 members.
