Dear family and friends,
 
As some of you may know, while pursuing his love for dance with utmost passion and dedication, Amal is also very passionate about making a difference in the lives of people who are less fortunate. Since 2016, he has been volunteering with Vision-Aid, a nonprofit serving the blind and vision impaired in India, by participating in their amazing annual dance dramas and helping as a volunteer with them.
