SJC hosts Humanitas for songs and charity

Aromas from gulab jamuns, brownies, sandwiches, and other delicacies wafted through the quadrangle at St Joseph’s College (Autonomous) on Monday, December 10. The college inaugurated the sixth edition of Humanitas a Christmas Musical hosted by the college’s choir. Their aim was to bring together choirs from across the city for competitions as well as putting up food stalls. The money collected during the three-day event would be used to financially help Liza’s Home, a care facility for children and women with mental and physical disabilities.

“Every year, Humanitas takes place for a cause: to raise money for charity. The first Humanitas’ funds went to Sri Lankan refugees, while the following year’s money was donated to Mother Teresa Charitable Trust,” said Kiran Jeevan, PRO of the college. Cyril SL, a second-year BCA student who was busy designing his own baked cookies, told The Beacon that Humanitas has been a fun journey to showcase his baking skills, even as he donated his hard-earned money to charity.
