Spread a smile. Gift a Joy.

It is a pleasant day today with intermittent rain and lots of clouds. For some of us, it turned to be a beautiful day as we visited Earth Saviours Foundation. We got a Gift of Joy from the inmates of the NGO, run as a shelter of hope in Bandwari Village.

The day started with a tree plantation drive in the shelter and a number of local Jamun (Black Plum) trees were planted by the senior inmates and some of our friends.

Next was a round of sweets shared with the inmates. The smiles were precious as were some comments, like  “I had 3 laddoos” and the feeling was priceless.

After spending some more time talking to the inmates we said our goodbyes but not before  we left more goodies (rations) for them and a promise to return soon.

Thank you friends for this gift of joy and spread of smiles.
