Good morning friends. As we are celebrating friendship day, the closeness of one another was observed a lot. That’s why they tied a friendship band to slum kids. It’s a good thing to know such like that. And it can be done by everyone.
A group of 35 youngsters from the Youth Red Cross Society, in association with National Service Scheme of Shahjanand College, participated in an health awareness camp in the slums of Juna Vadaj to celebrate Friendship Day on Sunday .
One of the participating student, Sumy Parappuly, said, “We wanted to celebrate the Friendship Day in a different way. And, meeting and spending time with these under-privileged children is the best option. The experience was enriching for all of us.”
“We told them about the dangers of mosquitoes and other monsoon related diseases. We also taught them little ways by which they can keep their surroundings clean to avoid unhygienic conditions. Besides, pamphlets were distributed among slum-dwellers, telling them the importance of cleanliness in their locality.” added Parappuly.
Not only this, the youngsters also tied friendship bands to these kids. Hetal Panchal, program co-coordinator of Gujarat chapter Red Cross Society, said, “This is an initiative to promote cleanliness drive in the slum areas and make slum-dwellers informed about monsoon diseases.” – The Times of India
