This event hosted by Medcare was organised to celebrate Mother’s Day. The elderly and disabled were brought on wheel chairs. They enjoyed good food and went down memory lane recalling anecdotes and achievements while few of them made the gathering melodius by singing
Such open air events and close to the sea makes the elderly feel good and positive, said Shaikha Ebrahim, a senior social worker with Geriatic Home.
Ebrahim further added that these elderly people either do not have families or are unmarried and don’t have anyone to look after them. The purpose of our centres is to provide food, shelter, medication, also support them emotionally and give the elderlies the love which they need the most.
