Swami Home is IWA’s humble initiative to connect and care for the elderly residents of Swami Home.
Volunteering at The Swami Home happen when we celebrate birthdays during quarterly events for the residents by cutting a cake, giving gifts to the birthday Uncle and Aunty of the past months.
In December 2019 we celebrated Christmas with carols, dance and song performances by members of the music and dance clubs and their families. The crowd-puller was a member’s spouse dressed as Santa Claus bringing joy to all. We also organised Christmas gifts for all 290 pioneer generation of the Swami Home.
All the events were enthusiastically participated by IWA families, enjoyed and appreciated by the old folks of Swami home.
We create awareness amongst our members that this ‘silver tsunami’ will indeed impact all of us and we need to take care of our elderly. Bring your friends, children to volunteer at Swami Home, the experience of sharing our time with the elderly is priceless.
