When the Student Police Cadet (SPC) is emerging as a household name in Kerala for making dedicated efforts to foster a sense of discipline in society, a team of SPC cadets from the Government Higher Secondary School here devoted the Deepavali day to provide solace to a 13-year-old artist, who is afflicted with a mysterious disease.

Born to Basheer-Hassina couple, Sharafa Sherine has been almost bed-ridden due to stunted growth right from her birth.

She is in a pathetic condition with no effective cure in sight.

Fifteen SPC cadets, accompanied by teachers and Kasaragod Town police station sub-inspector T. Uthamdas, visited Sherine at her house at Meepuguri as part of a palliative care project.

As soon as they reached her home, Sherine, a class VII dropout owing to failing health and immobility, got jubilant.

She painted a beautiful greeting card swiftly in front of her guests and gifted it to them. She then sang a song for them.

She talked about her ambitions on the artistic front even as the cadets instilled confidence in her to overcome her trauma, said Mr. Uthamdas. She is a talented sculptor and painter, he added The team left the family after presenting a greeting card wishing speedy recovery of health to the young artist.
