Masala! readers can now nominate deserving individuals to get recognized and have their dreams come true with Gold 101.3 FM. The Malayalam radio show ‘Morning Drive with Vysakh & Samira’ has launched a new philanthropic segment entitled “SaVy Connect”, where UAE residents can nominate individuals who are struggling with personal challenges and RJ’s Vysakh and Samira will select one individual per week to surprise them on-air, by making their dreams for a brighter future come true.
The recently launched segment has gained praise for its community based initiate that has included a Dubai based taxi driver receiving a laptop that his daughter desperately needed to prepare for her upcoming examinations, to a brother who was gifted a flight ticket, so he could afford to travel back home for his sister’s wedding.
Speaking to Masala! RJ Vysakh shared why he and his co-host Samira felt the need to launch this new segment, “The UAE has given us amazing opportunities and we wanted to share the love and see how we could give back to others. We would always hear stories about people who were working really hard and just needed a little extra help, so decided to just go for it and help one individual at a time. We truly believe that every little bit helps and wanted to lead by example.”
The “Morning Drive with Vysakh & Samira” show is on every Sunday to Thursday, 6am to 11am and to participate and nominate, readers can send a text message as follows: SaVy Connect<space>Name of deserving individual and their desired wish to 6883.
