Al Qamar kids visit an old age home for Daan Utsav

Al Qamar students went to visit Vishranti, an old age home in Palavakkam today as a part of Al Qamar's "Rent A Grandkid" scheme for the Daan Utsav week long celebration.

It was a mind blowing experience for both the old ladies and the young children.Children interacted with the ladies - "What's your name?" "What did you eat today?" and more. 

The ladies were delighted to meet the kids. One old lady wept. They narrated their stories - how they've been left here,  some despite having families who are well off.

Our kids carried gifts of provisions for the Home. They came back "loving their grandparents" even more. Surely they wouldn't want such loneliness for them.

Vishranti itself was amazing - clean, neat, with good amenities,  round the clock nursing etc.

Wonderful effort from young children who went to spread happiness as a part of Daan Utsav - the Week of Giving.
