“God helps to those who help others!”
"If you have not learnt the art of giving, you are yet to learn the art of living!”
Devadiga Sangha Mumbai - Asalpha Local Co-ordination Committee team have realised this and stepped forward to share some moments with the old people of the “Home for the Aged”, located at Sher-e-Punjab, Opp. Canossa Convent Primary School, Prem Vasundhara Society, Mahakali Caves Road, Andheri East, Mumbai – 400059 on 29th January 2017, at 9:00 am, with the initiative of Asalpha LCC Youth Chairman – Mr. Rakesh Bhoja Devadiga and Team.
Reason for the Visit:-
- To know the Importance of one’s Parents.
- To increase the feeling of love and respect towards the elderly people of our home and society.
- To know the secret behind happiness in caring.
The purpose of the visit was to meet 40 people of the home aged above than 55 years (17 male and 23 female) and to spend some lovely time with them.
The entire team had provided the Home a lot of clothes to be worn by the old people and kitchen necessities like Tea Powder, Milk Powder along with fruits like Banana, Papaya and Oranges.
A few old ladies of the Home prepared beautiful artificial Roses made up of paper, plastic and other materials. Those flowers were sold by the old people to assist the organization financially, contributing to a growth in their self-esteem about work and earn. Therefore, Asalpha team had purchased the entire bouquet consisting of more than 50 roses kept for sale. Those roses were further sold to the members of Asalpha LCC present during the Haldi-Kumkum Function.
A special request was made by the organization to avoid asking any personal questions to the elderly people. Thereby, the entire team had planned to make the aged people happy by singing songs on the day. An old lady among them welcomed all the people by a pretty song. The whole crowd including the Asalpha team and the old age people joined into the singing and cherished all.
The whole day chores of the aged people was recognized and thereby without any need of altering their other chores, the Asalpha team said Good Bye to all the people of the Home by noon. The aged people requested the entire team to come back soon. They also thanked for the materials taken for them by the Asalpha team. A promise to visit again on 5th April 2017 was made. All the aged people, prayed for the well-being of the entire Devadiga Community.
Thanks to Home for the Aged for providing a time slot for Asalpha team to spend a nice time with the aged people.
