NSS Units of BBK DAV College for Women visited Guru Ram Das Old Age Home to have an interaction with the elderly inmates on the 6th day of its 7 days camp. The camp aims at sensitizing the volunteers to the problems of senior citizens and finding ways and means to solve them.
During the visit, the Unit members had a lively interaction with the senior citizens. The volunteers entertained the elderly inmates by singing songs for them and performed graceful dance moves. Fruits and other eatables were given in donation.
Appreciating the zeal of the volunteers, Principal Dr. Pushpinder Walia said that all of us should come forward to address the needs of the elderly inmates wholeheartedly. She emphasized upon the need of giving care and attention to elders in order to make them feel validated in life. She further added that giving them importance can be of therapeutic value to reduce their loneliness. She advised the volunteers to love their old parents for the simple reason that they dedicated the prime time of their life to make our life better.
On this occasion, NSS Programme Officers Ms. Surbhi Sethi, Ms. Priya Sharma and other team members namely Dr. Harminder Singh, Mr. Palwinder Singh and Ms. Neha Sehgal were also present.
