Dear sisters and brothers,

We have received requests from many of you to volunteer your services in Kanha Shanti Vanam.

In view of the prevailing pandemic, we will not be able to accommodate large numbers due to limited quarantine facilities.

  2. As per government guidelines, you must be a resident in India.
  3. In a good state of health. Those who have health problems are requested not to apply. In case you are found with any pre-existing diseases, you will be requested to leave.
  4. Carry a current health insurance policy, which covers the period of your stay, and an Aadhar card. It is also important that you top up your existing medical insurance with a Suraksha Kavach plan from any insurance company.
  5. Stay is planned for more than a month.
