Ozindcare Reaching New Heights!

We are happy to inform to all our members and supporters that during the financial year 2015-16, Ozindcare donated an amount of $39,873.00 to help the helpless in various place.  The beneficiaries include helpless people suffering with illness who are not able to get treatments, assistance for education, housing, and some of the Volunteer organisations who help the poor without any financial benefits. Help was given only after considering the requests carefully by the committee.

Funds were collected through organising and conducting functions, donations , sponsorships, memberships and committee members with volunteers helping to prepare food for private functions.

Comparing to many organisations, this amount may not look big. But, Ozindcare being a volunteer organisation and any amount we collect goes to the real needy in full. On behalf of all our beneficiaries, we thank all our members and supporters for being part of this noble cause and hope to continue the service of “helping the helpless”.

An appeal to our members and supporters

Aaruthal Illam, also known as Snehakooddaram, is in Theni a place bordering Kerala and Tamilnadu. In neighbouring villages like Aandippetti, Usilaampetti etc

Sunil, a young man from Kerala and his wife Daisy, herself an orphan, have established a helping centre named “Snehakoodaarm” to find and save children from street and to look after them by giving shelter, food, clothes and education. Currently they care for about 25 such children and they also work to provide awareness to the would be mothers and do some charity work in the villages nearby.

Sunil and his wife work very hard to fund such activities and also they receive some help from like-minded people. It has been registered as a charitable society under JJ Act and has obtained “fit institution Certificate” to conduct such activities.

Now, Snehakoodaaram has requested us to help if possible and Ozindcare committee after getting in touch with Sunil and enquiring further, has decided to help them.

We have provided initial financial assistance of $1000/- According to them it costs almost Rs 25000 per month to run Snehakoodaaram and it is becoming more and more difficult for them to find such funds on an ongoing basis. Ozindcare request to all our members and supporters to spare a thought for Snehakoodaaram.

By Nickin Alexander

Approximately 45% of people will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime. 1 million Australians are diagnosed with depression and over 2 million people have fallen victim to anxiety.

From where we stand, any mental health issue is seen as taboo, but with depression, anxiety and other forms of mental health issues at an all time high, we realise that the problem is too hard to ignore. In a world where medication is the cure for all kind of ailments, the one thing that can never truly be cured is the work of a depressed mind. Yes, it can be treated with a myriad of different medicines but in essence, it does not just come and go like any infection. The truth is, regardless of what we may think, the effects of depression can only be combatted with one thing, and that’s with actual, one on one, personal help.

You see everyone suffers from it differently; a person’s depression starts and affects them in unique ways. Without any known reason we are all individually and uniquely tethered and weighed down by it in all shapes and forms. And that’s where we suffer. Because of its fickle and cunning ways, the treatment is never the same.
This problem is now one that we cannot ignore, and as a result, we must take action before it destroys our youth and worse off becomes a beckoning factor as to why we lose ourselves at such a young age. On a larger scale, the youth of today are fast becoming steady victims to this disease. It starts with the mind, and if left to its ways, can mould to how you carry yourself physically and can ultimately, negatively affect the very core of your being.

The most common feeling is that of being at an emotional low, ranging from specific periods or throughout anyone’s day. Depression can form through a variety of different symptoms including:

  • The lack of motivation to get up and live your day-to-day life;
  • The feelings of being sad, and moody for extended periods of time;
  • Lack of interest in things that once motivated you;
  • The lack of energy in day to day activities, and;
  • Coupled with difficulty in sleeping and having a hard time concentrating on even remedial tasks.

The first step in fixing any problem is acknowledging that there is one, that its existence is real. Don’t let the old traditional taboo of this illness dictate our response to how we live. It is time that we realised, in a world where most people are left to feel alone, that we can make a difference and help people to better their lives. Asking someone a question, as simple as “are you okay?” can make a significant impact and is all that is required in trying to prevent further harm from occurring.

If you notice any of the symptoms mentioned in a family member, friend, colleague or even in yourself, don’t be afraid, help is always here, all you have to do is reach out to access it. We need to start to recognise this problem because the world needs this change to happen. Too many lives are being destroyed every day due to the failure of recognising those who need help the most.

If you or a loved one is dealing or may be dealing with depression, anxiety or any other mental health issues, seek professional help from a local GP or visit for more information.
