A Heart Touching Day

One of the best and overwhelming activities conducted so far by APD was the visit to Sofosh Orphanage. Sofosh is an orphanage which is a part of the SASOON hospital and BJ Medical College. There are children right from the age of 8 days old to 6 years old divided in 3 different age groups. The management staff, the caretakers, nurses and the whole orphanage is excellently well maintained. The children are well fed and properly managed with all the necessary facilities over there like play area, physiotherapy room, class room, dining area, etc.
All the APD members were looking forward for this activity eagerly. Our organization & a few members individually, decided to donate a few food products, grains, medicines and other basic necessities which Sofosh had requested for. The manager over there showed us around the whole place and let us plays with the kids which belonged to the age group of 10 months to 6 years of age. As we entered the hall where these children were kept, a majority of them came and hugged a few of us with a lot of love & affection. We spent almost two hours with playing with them and unknowingly we’d created an attachment towards them. Those kids were extremely friendly, loving and selfless about everything. Many of us ended up in tears when we were about to leave from there. We all decided to visit this place to meet these little angels often & a few of us did visit them again. 
In a nutshell, these kids made us feel lucky to have parents whom we need to value always & taught us to be happy in whatever situation you go through. It certainly was a very beautiful activity.
