He is kind, soft natured and totally adorable, if you meet him you’d just want to hug him! He feels deeply for those who need help, be that physically or mentally and he is simply perfect for RuRi and to help bring out the compassion in all our volunteers.

Shakthi Buwaneshwaran

Its Buwaneshwaran, Shakthi Buwaneshwaran and as his name evidently suggests, this a young man who is more than just strong! He is a magnificent force to be reckoned with! Within minutes of our FB Page going live in August 2016, he was there in a flash, he wanted in! Shakthi was the very first RuRi Foundation volunteer who signed up, the first of many bright, conscious and compassionate young minds who make up our organisation. Before we had officially sworn in our Committee, the guy showed up! He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of volunteering. There’s nothing this guy can’t do. In fact, there’s speculation here at RuRi that he’s an Avenger!! Fact or fiction aside, with his 007 style (see image), he’s a true asset to us being the energetic and high spirited young man that he is.

He joined us because he believed we were going to make a difference to the lives of young people and their families suffering with cancer, and with him on board, we most certainly will!
