Darushifa together with Awqaf SA decided that as part of its Social Upliftment Programme for Orphans, to avail the space at the Elderly Care Centre in Lenasia for orphaned children to play and interact with the elderly in a safe environment. To create a day of fun and laughter for both generations. To bring awareness to social responsibilities towards the elders from the youth.
Our first fun day took place on Sunday 22 July 2018 and we were honoured to host the the Al Hudaar Orphanage in Lenasia. The kids were excited to play on the jumping castle and partake in the arts and crafts. There was enough space to play around with a soccer ball for an informal match. Snacks and light lunch followed. Lots of vitamin D going around in the beautiful sunny day we had alhamdulillah. This day and the activities was enjoyed by the orphans and the elderly residents from DaruShifa. It was indeed a day filled with laughter and fun.
Insha’allah we shall endeavour to make this a monthly or bi-monthly event and invite a different orphanage each time.
