In its endeavour to make a positive impact on senior citizens living in old age homes across the city, RC Nagpur Ishanya, RID 3030, recently carried out a heartwarming project called Muskaan – The Joy of Giving. Under the initiative, they were taken out on a fun outing.
Club members had to gather information about the old age homes and identify the seniors who were fit to be taken on a one-day picnic. They were able to identify 150 beneficiaries from 10 old age homes and took them to the Telankhedi Hanuman Mandir grounds in buses, along with 30 caretakers.
Upon arrival, the seniors were welcomed by a group of 50 Rotarians, who adorned them with a chandan ka tilak and sang songs to greet them. The morning started with a breakfast of tea, biscuits and bananas, followed by a visit to the temple. To liven up the day, the club arranged games like Antakshari.
Rotarians served them a grand vegetarian thali followed by ice cream and desserts. The second half of the day was filled with entertainment activities, including a magic show, Holi with flowers, and a dance with club members.
