WHY SHANTIVANAM ?
Allopathy has made major inroads into the Healthcare system of India. In spite of that millions of people all over India still depend upon the Traditional Medical Systems like Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani. These Systems traditionally relied on collecting the plants and different parts of the trees from the Wild. However because of massive commercial exploitation a number of such species have been extremely marginalized and some are on the brink of extinction. A 2010 Survey highlighted the fact that 93% of the wild medicinal plants are endangered which is very worrying. We may soon face a situation where we know what cures an ailment but we will not be having the plant material to effect that cure.

Volunteering has always been synonymously used with the terms Community Services or pro-bono help. While most of us have the privilege to lead a good life, we know that a huge community outside our four walls needs more help and care.
