YUVA volunteers, YUVA Academy students host lunch at senior citizens’ home

YUVA volunteers and YUVA Academy students organised a visit to the senior citizens’ home, Saint Jean de Dieu – Hospice & Chapel, Pamplemousses, on Sunday.

YUVA served lunch to around 100 residents of the home. We served 7 curries and rice, rason, panacon, juice and Aplon and Sagoo for lunch. YUVANs had set up the dining room, served food, fed those senior citizens who could not eat by themselves and cleaned up the place afterwards. We also organised different games, talked to the senior citizens and listened to their stories, each one as interesting as the last. We had put on music and those who felt like it danced and entertained the others. There was also an open mike session, whereby senior citizens, staff members and volunteers took the opportunity to amaze us with great songs.

Our young people were so excited that they presented handmade cards, sweets and other gifts to senior citizens. YUVANs also shared their stories with them. In return, senior citizens showered their blessings and enjoyed a lot in the company of our volunteers and students.
