Ruth

Ruth is a charity initiative by the staff and students of WMO Arts & Science college, Muttil to provide financial support to the students and the needy people around the college. It started functioning in the college from 2014. The fund for the functioning of this charity wing is received as donations from the students and faculty members of the college. Ruth is mainly concentrating to provide financial aid to students, their family members and nearby people in medical emergencies. People suffering from major diseases like Cancer, Kidney failure etc. were supported through Ruth. Through this platform, we were able to help many students, who met with major accidents during this period. Wayand is a district with a high density of tribal population, and also majority are engaged in agriculture rather than business or government jobs. As a result, the financial background of a vast majority is very weak. A large fraction of the students is from families of lower economic status. In such a situation it becomes impossible for their families to manage things when there happens an accident or critical disease to any one family member. So the charity initiatives like Ruth is a great help to the underprivileged people of this area. Also, such charity initiatives will teach the students to be compassionate and kind to their fellow beings. This will help to eliminate selfishness and narrow-mindedness from their character. So the practices of charity will help to improve ones on personality. So far we have distributed 4,20000 rupees through Ruth and around 40 percent of which is given as medical aid to local people.
