VISIT TO KARUNA, AN OLD AGE HOME
The social service club of Carmel Convent Sr. Sec. School, BHEL strive to provide a range of social service opportunities that will allow the students to expand their understanding of Social issues and consider their role in finding solutions to community concern. Carmel believes that no education is complete if the students are not able to feel for the underprivileged and marginalized. The social service club went to Karuna Colony, a shelter for the old people, whose families have abandoned them. For this noble cause , we were personally assisted by our school Principal, Rev. Sr. Anupa .
The students of Carmel contributed very generously and many items of basic necessity was collected . The Visit was an unforgettable experience, where the students learnt about true life, sharing and caring .
The inmates of Karuna Colony were lonely and craving for love and affection . We spoke to them, shared our love and sang songs for them. We spent time with them, heard their stories and made them feel special. This taught us a very important lesson in life i.e. “Opportunity, words and loved ones- once gone, they never come back”, hence we must give due respect to our Parents and elderly members of our society.
