The students of Biotechnology Department of the College along with the staff members and the Principal Dr. P. Suresh Venugopal distributed the hand sanitizers made by the College to the public assembled at Kuruvilassery Church, at free of cost. METS College along with Kuruvilassery Library distributed the sanitizers to the people assembled at Valiyaparambu junction as a part of the campaign held to create awareness on the proper use of sanitizers and how it helps to keep the disease away. These sanitizers were also distributed to those who are home quarantined in Mala GramaPanchayath through Panchayath Members. By joining hands with Kuruvilassery Service Cooperative Bank, METS Distributed their sanitizers to the public at Mala Bus Stand. Nearly 1000 hand sanitizers have been distributed by METS to the public till the date.
