UCB celebrated International Day of Elderly Persons in a unique way by visiting the patients at the NBB Elderly Home in Isa Town. The idea behind the visit was to spend time with the elderly people who are living alone there. Both the patients and the student volunteers were delighted to spend time together. The elderly shared their stories with children, shared their experience. The students on the other hand listened to the patiently and showered them with love and attention. The most important thing for the elderly patients is the feeling that someone is there is listen to them and is giving them affection and time. The staff of the Elderly Home showed the students around the whole place like the physiotherapy room, the kitchen area and other facilities available for the patients. Both the patients and the volunteers had tears in their eyes on parting from each other. UCB also gifted two wheelchairs for the patients there.
