As part of University College of Bahrain’s commitment
for Bahrain society and celebrating the UN’s International Day of Elder Person
and to encourage students to volunteer for community service, the Student
Affairs Department and Students Council with collaboration with Yooko Parents
Care Center, organized a day out for the elderly. As a part of the program, the
elderly people were taken for a day out fun trip to Seef Mall – Arad. More than 50 elderly people
assisted by UCB members were taken for a comedy movie. This was followed by a
dinner at Amwaj Islands. The management of Yooko Parents Care
Center & all those who attended
this day out, were extremely touched by this gesture. They got emotional, and
were happy that the staff & students of UCB, took time out to spend with
them, assisted them throughout the evening. They blessed all the volunteers and
prayed for UCB’s success.
The whole concept behind the event was giving time, love, affection & care to these elderly people.
