COMPANIONSHIP

Picture 093

Twenty ISR® volunteers from the Corporate team of Kolkata visited Navanir today spend some time with the 45 female inmates, aged 60 years and above, of the old age home located in Chetla area in the southern fringe of the city. The main objective of the visit was to provide companionship to the senior citizens, who had to undergo the misfortune of being abandoned by their sons and daughters. The team, comprising volunteers from Finance, Corporate IT, HRD, Finance & Corporate Communications, spent over two hours, regaling the inmates with song, dance, poetry and jokes. At the end, they distributed toiletries and other daily necessities, Typhoo tea bags and other food items. The experience touched their hearts and left a deep impression in the minds of the volunteers. While for some it was painful to see how the women have been abandoned by their sons & daughters, for others it was an experience of a life time as they were touched by the warmth and love of the elderly women.
