What is a Mela? More about Leadership Summit 2015

In India, the word "Mela" means 'gathering' or 'to meet' or a 'fair'. India is a land of fairs and festivals – every month there are festivals held throughout the different regions of India.

Even though there was no festival on the 19th of May in Hyderabad, it was as if the city was in a festive mood on the second day of our Leadership Summit (read the recap of our first day here) which was all set up like a Mela or festival. In honor of the day, we adorned the four corners of our venue with colorful balloons and decorations to make it look like a true Mela.

Learning about leadership from Friends of Max in India

At The Max Foundation, we strive to see leaders developed around the world to help advocate and guide global cancer patients. It's an encouragement to find supporters crop up and give back to their community in leadership roles and we are doing our part in equipping them to succeed. 

Last month, Friends of Max (FOM), the support group arm of The Max Foundation in India gathered for their second Leadership Summit in Hyderabad. Friends of Max is a charitable trust registered in India comprised of individuals impacted directly and indirectly by chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GIST).

Over 120 City Chapter leaders and the whole team from The Max Foundation in India attended the meeting on 18th and 19th April 2015. This event rallied advocates and practitioners who serve and support people living with cancer in India. These leaders represent the vision of The Max Foundation through their efforts and we are proud to see them gather and learn ways to best help others.

Read on to hear about the activities from the first day (we’ll post about the second day’s tomorrow and tell you what a ‘Mela’ is in India!)
