There is so much to be done for the weak and the innocent animals but time and resources are always against the ones willing to work. At such times, even a small word of encouragement or a contribution gives a lot of strength. This Award has proved to be one such strength for TVA and given enough encouragement to work more in the years to come.
TVA feels that the award is a recognition of love, peace, compassion and other human values which transcends all the religious and national barriers.
